January 17, 2018View for printing

People living in the small towns outside of Missoula want to be able to control their own destiny by making decisions about growth and infrastructure rather than having those decisions made by the city government, because they generally would rather be under county governance, but they also don't want to see higher taxes.

Many would like more economic development, but most are against high-density housing or higher taxes.
