UPDATE: On October 19th, 2020 City Council adopted a resolution to annex the subject property, adopted an ordinance to establish the Remington Flats Neighborhood Character Overlay District and to rezone the property, and approved the Remington Flats Phased Subdivision.


PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

An application is under review to create 152 residential lots on 20 acres just north of the 44 Ranch Subdivision. The land is proposed to be annexed into the City of Missoula, zoned RT5.4 Residential, and provided a new Remington Flats Neighborhood Character Overlay District that would allow detached houses, two-unit townhouses, and three-unit townhouses each on its own

    Where are you going to have 304 more vehicles going up and down Mullan road/George Elmer? The only way in and out is to use our neighborhood. Mullan cannot withstand more vehicles! Where are they going to go to school?? Hellgate Elementary is already full and had to build more buildings for the excess kids. You should at least build on the lots behind the 44 Ranch at least the same lot size. Where is the park for this subdivision?? How is an average Missoulian going to afford a home here?? Prices are already outrages that the jobs here do not support. Where is the planes going to land if there is an emergency, on top of the 152 dwellings?? I think this subdivision is not right. Maybe concentrate on how you might help the people get back to work with incomes that could afford a home. It is a sad place to live in as our children will never know about open land with cows, horses, sheep. You have taxed the farmer/rancher to where they cannot afford the taxes to keep their land. I think you need to reconsider and look at maybe finding a solution to the mass traffic on Mullan Rd instead of building more houses.

    The Remington Flats Subdivision is located within ¼ mile of a neighborhood park in the 44 Ranch Subdivision.  This park can serve the Remington Flats subdivision residents.  The City Parks and Recreation Department indicated cash in lieu of parkland would be used to help provide park facilities in the existing park, as opposed to having another park in close proximity to the existing one.  

    School districts are notified when we receive subdivision applications to ensure they can accommodate additional students. The Missoula County Airport Authority is also notified to review applications near the airport. 

    Please contact DeGrandpreD@ci.missoula.mt.us to receive a copy of the Traffic Impact Study.

    I recommend attending one of the public hearings to voice your concerns about housing affordability.  Housing prices are determined by the private developer, not the City.

    I am pro development within Missoula when development are planned out in accordance with a master plan. This particular development feels like it is a few year ahead of the Missoula City plans. The main concern being traffic and children in an existing development. Using all exit points through a larger subdivision does not seem fair to the 44 Ranch developer or the children playing in front of their homes. This subdivision makes more sense once England is extended. Being allowed to use 44 Ranch’s infrastructure is concerning. Traffic is a problem as it is getting out on Mullan. Until the George Elmer project is complete with a round-about or light I do not feel these subdivisions should be considered. Please review this concern prior to approving. Why is there not a park or green space located within this development? I was under the impression with was a requirement for all, rules should not change for each development. A small strip of green space between the developments would be nice a few feet? Backing small short lots up against the existing subdivision will put homes very close. Realizing 44 Ranch did this to 44 Estates recently, but at least most of those lots were large for that area giving a small offset between homes. The OH Power line should be removed within the project. It is feeding a single home and either 44 Ranch or this new development should remove this before there are homes built on both sides. I believe we need to continue to grow Missoula’s housing development. This particular area is a bummer with the wild animals that utilize the old growth trees in the area. I do not believe there is anything you can do, but on any given day there are bears, coyotes, badgers, golden and bald eagles, fox, blue heron, and many other hawks. Major advantage, maybe the mice and gophers will be better for the homes backing the field.

    Too many homes for the acreage. There are too many cars on Mullan Rd as it is.
