Missoula Considers More Urban Renewal Districts

Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA -

The Missoula City Council approved a proposal Monday night, to create two more urban renewal districts in Missoula.

This comes after a study found an area on East Broadway, as well as a portion of Russell Street, is "blighted." That means the areas are deteriorating, and not up to the city's standards for growth.

If the areas become renewal districts, they would be redeveloped. Then, taxes on the property would go up, creating more money to go to other renewal projects. Missoula's first renewal district was created downtown.

The plan now has to be approved by the Missoula Redevelopment Agency, then it will go back before city council members for a final vote.
