No community controls growth, but great communities guide growth so cities maintain a sense of place, character and value. Mayor Engen is working to guide development in Missoula in a way that honors the land and the environment and supports safe, sound communities. From a master plan that uses state-of-the-practice codes to support high-quality development in the Mullan Road area to working with the private sector to revitalize areas where current uses don’t reflect current needs, Mayor Engen understands how to work with city government, community members and developers to ensure that as our community grows, Missoula remains Missoula.
