Downtown Master Plan Revised and Available for Review. Adoption Process Underway

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 available for public viewing on this website. 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

  • Destination Missoula

  • Missoula Economic Partnership

 “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.”
