A public hearing will be held on June 18th at 7:00 PM at the Missoula City Council Chambers, to consider amendments to Title 20 Chapter 20.25 Overlay Districts. The amendments include the creation and application of the University District Neighborhood Character Overlay which would apply to all residentially zoned lands within the University Neighborhood District. The intent of the district is to preserve development, redevelopment, and rehabilitation that is compatible with the scale, orientation and setting of original buildings in the neighborhood. The overlay district is also intended to prevent the loss of housing units in the district by prohibiting parcel aggregation.
