MISSOULA’S DOWNTOWN MASTER PLAN Adoption Process to Commence September 17th
The new community vision for Downtown Missoula is nearly complete. Following a full year of planning and community outreach and input, the adoption draft of Missoula’s new Downtown Master Plan is being updated to reflect the comments received since the May Community Draft Presentation. More than 3,000 individuals participated in developing the new vision for Downtown Missoula, written by the award-winning planning firm Dover, Kohl & Partners.
Now adoption of the plan is the next step. The new Downtown Master Plan will be put forth for adoption by multiple agencies and governing boards, including:
Downtown Business Improvement District
Missoula City Council
Missoula Consolidated Planning Board
Missoula County Commission
Missoula Downtown Association
Missoula Downtown Foundation
Missoula Metropolitan Planning Organization
Missoula Parking Commission
Missoula Redevelopment Agency
Missoula Economic Partnership
Dover, Kohl & Partners will be in Missoula September 17-20, 2019 to present the plan for adoption, as well as commence an additional outreach and planning process for the north riverside parks and trails from California Street to Missoula College. The meeting schedule is available here.
“The public outreach and engagement with this planning process has been incredible,” said Tim France, President of the Downtown Business Improvement District (BID) Board of Trustees. “Missoulians gave us their best ideas, and Dover, Kohl did a wonderful job of capturing those ideas and building out a new vision and strategy for the future of Downtown Missoula. Once we get through the adoption process, we can go back to focusing on implementation of the new plan. Our leadership is excited about having some new ideas and projects to improve the vibrancy of our city center.”
