MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) - The U.S. Forest Service plans to move its Region One headquarters out of a building in downtown Missoula in favor of a location at Fort Missoula on the outskirts of town.

The move saves the Forest Service an estimated $1.9 million in annual lease payments.

Forest Service officials tell the Missoulian (https://bit.ly/1x2j6sm ) they plan to put the money now budgeted for the building lease toward improving their existing offices at Fort Missoula.

The move will take place next spring or summer. Missoula business officials say the decision is disappointing and they will notice the absence of 230 Forest Service employees in downtown Missoula.
