University District Zoning Questionnaire *Update*

City Councilwoman Gwen Jones and the City of Missoula Development Services Personnel are reviewing the results of the questionnaire this summer and will bring the results to the University District Neighborhood Council Fall General Meeting. It appears that, in general, there is neighborhood support to pursue a discussion in the University District regarding additional size restrictions on residential housing. We plan to broach the discussion at the Fall General Meeting to get input on what zoning tools would be good starting points for the discussion; the next step would then be determining whether there is Council support for adding a project to the staff work plan.
