FOGC Membership Meeting

Grant Creek Inn

Meeting Report

The Board of Directors of Friends of Grant Creek invites you to a public meeting at the Grant Creek Inn on March 29, 2022, at 7:00 p.m.  If you cannot attend the meeting in person, a Zoom connection will allow participants to watch the meeting and submit questions and comments. (pre-registration for participating via Zoom is required.)

The main purpose of the meeting is to discuss the proposed rezoning on Expo Parkway to RM1-45 zone, which would allow 4-story apartment buildings on two parcels. 

The proposal is posted on Engage Missoula at: 

https://www.ci.missoula.mt.us/2878/Grant-Creek-Village-2920-Expo-Parkway

 

The developer, KJA, proposes to build approximately 625 apartment units and 75 condo-style buildings, all of which will be available for rent but not sale.  The FOGC Board of Directors have outlined the reasons to ask for a denial of the rezone application and would like to use this outline as a guide for the discussion on March 29. 

You can find the outline/meeting discussion points HERE.
