Tonight: The Future of Downtown

by Jason Wiener

Since early this year, in an effort to keep Missoula’s downtown the center of life in our city, a coalition of private and public entities have been working with consultants Crandall Arambula to develop a Greater Downtown Master Plan. The next step is tonight.

In March, Crandall Arambula came to town to ask Missoulians about their concerns about and aspirations for downtown. 160 people showed up and responded.

In June, Crandall Arambula came back to town with ideas about addressing those concerns and meeting those aspirations. 250 people showed up and responded.

Tonight, Wednesday, September 3, from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at the Holiday Inn Downtown at the Park, 200 S. Pattee St., Crandall Arambula returns to show a draft set of recommendations addressing retail, transportation, open space, arts & culture, housing and more—taken together their ideas could constitute a blueprint for the future of downtown if adopted by the City Council following this and one more session for public input into the plan as well as the public deliberation that goes with any City Council decision (planning board, public hearing, etc.).

The most effective input is the earliest, however, so come tonight, learn about the work that’s been done so far (even if it’s your first meeting) and have your say.
