City pushes back Grant Creek Village vote

Missoula City Council voted to postpone final consideration of a large potential subdivision in the Grant Creek area during a meeting Monday.

Council members voted 8-4 to reschedule the rezoning request of Grant Creek Village until June 27.

On June 22, the city’s Land Use and Planning Committee will take up the proposal, which seeks higher density and taller buildings on a 44-acre parcel on Expo Parkway.

Last week, the committee held a meeting on the proposal that lasted almost five hours.

The four council members who voted to hear the rezone request Monday — Kristen Jordan in Ward 6, Mike Nugent in Ward 4, Daniel Carlino in Ward 3 and Sandra Vasecka in Ward 6 — cited the drawn-out process in their opposition to postponement.

“We’ve already been waiting two years for this rezone to be voted on again,” Carlino pointed out. Council previously rejected the rezone request in 2020.
