Missoula Subdivision and TED Regulations Review

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link
Rules and processes around the subdivision process for residential development impacts the way that our community grows, lives and plays. It's time to update how we build our residential communities!

The City of Missoula is undertaking a review of City Subdivision Regulations. The process will be broad enough to include consideration of potential changes to Missoula City Zoning related to the subdivision exemption process for Townhome Exemption Development (TED), and will be based on input from a broad array of interests. This current project will help to establish a plan for future changes, both at the local level as well as potentially the state level. Overall, we anticipate a multi-year regulatory update process coming out of this review.

Our purpose for this review is to work collaboratively to create a set of recommended subdivision and subdivision exemption regulation changes to provide predictability for everyone engaged in development, to simplify the process wherever possible, and to reduce review times and temper expense, all while ensuring that our high community standards remain in place.

We invite you to participate in this effort. This project page provides a place where residents, landowners, businesses, and others can learn more about the effort, obtain background information, and make comments during the process. We will work to keep the site updated with events, such as focus group meetings, open houses, and other information.
