MISSOULA -

Missoula's Development Services is celebrating its first anniversary.

The department held an open house on Friday, for people to come in, and take a look at the work its done in the past year. They handle zoning, engineering and building code questions, along with the planning and design of transportation and other facilities.

Since opening its doors last January, the Department has issued about 1,400 building permits with a construction value of almost $82 million.

"Everything is going great. I have a great staff here, we're working hard to refine the way we operate to be efficient as possible, and to offer great customer service to the folks that we serve," said Development Services Director, Mike Haynes.

In the years ahead, the department hopes to make the permit process easier for builders, contractors and other Missoula residents.
