Mountain Line is looking for citizen input on its future priorities as it continues with the latest update to its Strategic Plan. The agency will be hosting a series of open houses in different neighborhoods where citizens can view future alternatives for Missoula’s bus system and offer feedback.
Mountain Line’s Strategic Plan is a guiding document which describes how the agency will direct service over the next 30 years. This kind of planning takes place every 5 to 7 years. The Strategic Plan seeks to balance the needs and desires of the community with the fixed amount of resources available to provide effective service that benefits Missoula as a whole. Understanding the difficult tradeoffs involved is a key element to making informed choices on how transit should grow in Missoula
Each open house runs from 5:30pm to 7pm and will include a brief presentation and question and answer session with Mountain Line staff and transit design experts. There will be a presentation each night beginning at approximately 6:15pm. Attendees may drop in at any time during the events. Open houses are scheduled at the following times and locations:
- Thursday, November 2, 5:30pm – 7pm, Florence Hotel Lobby, 111 N. Higgins
- Thursday, November 9, 5:30pm – 7pm, Home ReSource Community Room, 1515 Wyoming St.
- Wednesday, November 15, 5:30pm – 7pm, Univ. Villages Community Room, 2595 Maurice Ave.
- Thursday, November 16, 5:30pm – 7pm, Missoula Fairgrounds Arts Building, 1101 South Ave.
