    Please scratch the prior question. Here is the correct version: Last week on the Engage Missoula website, I asked a series of questions about the Roundabout at George Elmer & Cattle Dr. The questions were submitted with both paragraph and question spacing. However they appear as one single unformatted paragraph making it difficult for Mr. Slovarp to respond. I urge you to look at it to see what I mean. Can you suggest how to format multiple questions going forward so that they are readable both for the public and City Staff?

    The software platform we use to host Engage Missoula does not have options for formatting text in the questions field, which is why the paragraphs ran together.  The best way to ask multiple questions in the future is to submit each one separately.  This improves readability both for staff and for other site participants who are interested in the response.  In addition, it allows staff to respond quickly to some questions and take the time to research others as needed, rather than delaying the entire response until all answers can be gathered.

    Is Missoula getting a…? (Trader Joe’s? Olive Garden? Something else?)

    6 months ago

    We get this kind of question a lot, and the answer is that we’re not sure.  While we occasionally get inquiries from businesses that are exploring Missoula, we don’t really know what’s coming until the business submits an application for a permit, a zoning request, or other regulatory paperwork.  If a project review requires a public meeting, you’ll find it on our Development Applications page.   If you’re curious about construction you see around town, you can check the map in Buildingeye to find permit information at that location.

    The City works closely with the Missoula Economic Partnership and others who want to bring businesses to Missoula.  We provide information about our zoning, economy, and regulations to interested parties.  We don’t decide whether or not a business should be in Missoula.  Our role is to adopt and enforce zoning regulations.  Those regulations determine what types of businesses, such as retail or manufacturing, can be located in specific areas of town, and what requirements, such as parking and landscaping, are needed.  Register for an account to be part of future conversations about zoning and other City regulations.
