WHAT CAN YOU DO?
Any changes to the zoning map, or rezonings, require a public review and approval process.
This is your opportunity to ensure Grant Creek is developed responsibly and as planned. If the rezone application is approved, the public no longer has a voice in future development.
BECOME A FRIEND OF GRANT CREEK
Stay informed through the FOGC website and resources provided here.
FOGC will let members know when the public process begins, when the rezoning application is scheduled to be before the Land Use & Planning Committee and when City Council convenes for a discussion and decision on the rezone application.
Want to help? Have questions? Let us know! Email Friends of Grant Creek!
Familiarize yourself with the process and understand how rezoning decisions are guided

*Engage Missoula is a new City of Missoula website that allows users to submit comments that the planners, planning board members and city councilors can evaluate for common themes. Information about the 2920 Expo Pkwy Rezone project has been recently posted, so people can weigh in.
ATTEND PUBLIC MEETINGS*
*Prepare your written or oral comments. This is the time to voice your opinion about the proposed rezoning. After a property is rezoned, there is no opportunity for public participation, and it will not go back to city council, as all future development of that property is handled administratively.
