The Missoula Outdoor Lighting Ordinance #3582 (PDF) went into effect on Nov. 2, 2016. This ordinance will affect what is submitted with each building permit submittal.
Any existing lighting fixtures on private property that may violate the ordinance may need to be brought into compliance. This office will look at these on a complaint basis only. A Lighting Ordinance Complaint Form (PDF) will need to be filled out and returned to our office and we will investigate the situation. Our office is located at: 435 Ryman
