"We always have wanted them to work." LMAO! Really? Really? Sounding way too much like Jean Curtiss. Wow. Good work Missoula County.
If you think Montana is turning into a wasteland, you need to get out more.
Also, where exactly do you think houses come from? From reviewing the subdivision packet, the worst thing I found was that the development firm was from Arizona. It's also a 30 year phased development. I'll be retired before it is ever finished. The time frame shows surprising restraint compared to how Arizona developments occurred before the housing bubble bust. Almost 25% of the land is staying as open space and a buffer for nearby agriculture....
I could go on and on about the good things in the subdivision packet, but ultimately I agree with Jason Rice - this is the epitome of smart growth development.
I think the new facility will improve life for everyone.
I've served food at the Pov a few times and have only ever found kind, gracious, and often timid patrons - sometimes with children of their own. Further, the Pov has rules and does not tolerate violent drunks.
I do think the move speaks loud and clear how the Downtown and many Missoulians think of homeless people: garbage to be collected and moved. Not even the panhandling and right of way ordinances were enough for them.
That being said, I certainly support the Pov getting a new, much needed facility. Please support this important project.
Well, at least Territorial Landworks is designing and engineering the subdivision. They do good work. I know nothing of Shiloh, but I would have preferred a local builder/developer on the project. I suppose the market in Arizona is still too crappy for them to do much work there so they have to go to the Bitteroot. If people don't like it, they have no one but themselves to blame: repealing the growth policy and zoning; electing that commission; and that guy they hired as the Planning Director.
Does anyone know if the landowners plan on farming the remaining 117 acres of open space?
So, should we go?
Nice work Lori! I know (have known) people who rely on the Palace housing. Great to see the housing portions being rehabbed.
Back to the underground, criminal market! Hope 2013 Legislature can do better than that.
