Zoning District


Citizen Initiated and Special Zoning Districts

Zoning Districts (ZD) (also known as County Part One Zoning) are defined boundaries containing at least 40 acres that include goals and objectives for planning, and the district zoning regulations.  In the each of the ZD's below, citizens have joined together through a petition process to create a Citizen Initiated Zoning District. Through this process citizens are encouraged to develop their proposed ZD to follow the County's comprehensive planning goals.  To help with this process, review the Formation and Amendment of a Part One ("Citizen-Initiated") handout.

To view a map of each ZD, click on the zoning district number.  Each of the ZD resolutions are also available for review and include a complete description of the ZD. To view the ZD description, click on the link in the ZD location description.

Special and Rural Zoning Districts:

(This section is still under construction.   Keep checking for updated information.)

Special Zoning Districts (SD) outline certain land uses within city limits that govern the use of land, density, bulk, height, and coverage of buildings and other structures uniformly. These districts are set up to accommodate special uses or purposes, such as residential and commercial developments.

Rural Zoning Districts are created to coordinate growth with physiographical criteria, to more efficiently and economically design, install, and maintain the size and capacity of physical and public service facilities to adequately and permanently meet needs resulting from a define intensity of land use.

Below is a list of current special and rural zoning districts in Missoula County. This list may be incomplete, so you may need to contact the Community and Planning Services office if you do not see a particular district.
