The Missoula Area Land Use Element Will be Effective as of June 6, 2019

The Element and the Map are available to the right and reflect the actions of the Planning Board and Board of County Commissioners.

Please note: Eventually, this site will be shut down and the Element will be available in the Plans section of the CAPS website and the map will be incorporated into the  Missoula County Property Information System.

What's this land use element? 

The land use element guides growth over the next 20 years. It has a map that shows potential locations for different land use types, descriptions for those land use designations, and strategy for implementation.

What's this land use element based on? 

The land use element combines input from public workshops, emails and the online mapping tool with planning considerations, such as infrastructure, natural resources and adopted policy. 

What's next?

The land use element contains a number of implementation steps.  CAPS staff will immediately begin to take action to implement the map.  The first step is updating the County's 40 plus year old zoning regulations. For more information, go to www.mczoningupdate.com
