Missoula Studies Land Flanking Russell Street

Posted: Updated:
Missoula, MT Missoula, MT

Even though work on Russell Street waits, the city wants to know how you want it to look.

Missoula got a grant from a consulting firm to study the land use on either side of the road between Third Street and Broadway, but not the road itself, which has already been designed.

Missoula planner Tom Zavitz says they're doing the study because at some point Russell Street will get renovated. He says work on the street and the land goes hand-in-hand.

The study will encompass land a few hundred feet on both sides of Russell to help shape future building design and land use. Rather than change what's already been built, the study will mostly help guide upcoming decisions.

The end goal is to come up with potential building standards; things that will affect which way structures face and pedestrian access.

Zavitz says the study should be finished by mid-December.

"The timetable has been slipping back, as you know, but I think recently, I'm not sure exactly, but I think construction will start in the next few years," said Zavitz.

Three meetings are coming up this week for the study.

On Wednesday, October 22 at 6:30 p.m. and then on Thursday, October 23 at 5:30 p.m. The Source gym is hosting public meetings.

If you can't make either of those, there's also a shorter, daytime meeting Thursday starting at 12:30 p.m. at 140 West Pine Street.
