Every permit issued shall become invalid unless the work on the site authorized by such permit is commenced within 180 days after its issuance, or if the work authorized on the site by such permit is suspended or abandoned for a period of 180 days after the time the work is commenced. [105.5]

Time Limit of Application: An application for a permit for any proposed work shall be deemed to have been abandoned 180 days after the date of filing unless such application has been pursued in good faith or a permit has been issued [105.3.2]

To request an extension email the permit coordinators at coordinators@ci.missoula.mt.us at least two weeks prior to the expiration of the building permit.
