Missoula can do a better job of preserving its historic buildings - or at least of working through the review process leading up to their demolition, should there be no way to save a structure.

That belief guided City Council members, the city's historic preservation officer and a few private citizens who worked over the past 18 months to rewrite Missoula's ordinance governing the demolition of local buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

When I watch tourists in Missoula I see them taking pictures of our old buildings, not the new ones.

They are one major reason they come to Missoula.
