2023 Midtown Master Plan

The Midtown Mater Plan process is complete. Use the links below to view the complete master plan and other related documents and information.

Project Overview

Project Overview

The Missoula Midtown Association and community partners have identified the need for cohesion around a vision for changes happening in Midtown. In 2022 and 2023, the Association is working with ECONorthwest’s project team and residents to create an infrastructure, development, and placemaking master plan based on public input and research on existing conditions. The plan will describe a vision that reflects Midtown’s values—including the values of those who live, work in, and use Midtown—and reinforce the unique character, culture, and economic activity of the area.

Identified through a previous process by the Missoula Midtown Association, the goals for this project are to:

  • Provide a voice for the people who live in, work in, and utilize Midtown 

  • Promote equitable development 

  • Promote a sense of belonging 

  • Create predictability for private investment 

  • Leverage local dollars to attract Federal infrastructure funding 

  • Build on existing planning initiatives for Midtown

Process + Timeline

o   Creation of the Midtown Master Plan has been a year-long process.

Now completed, the plan will inform decisions for the Midtown area for years to come. 



Early in the planning process, community members provided input on their future vision for Midtown. The vision statement summarizes this input and helped to guide the development of the rest of the Master Plan. The vision statement will guide community members who will implement the recommendations.


We will build a Midtown that is…


…an authentically vibrant, inclusive, and fun part of Missoula, with a high quality of life and a distinct quality of place. Future development in Midtown will lead with equitable solutions to provide a mixed-use district that provides prime opportunities for living, learning, doing business, and outdoor recreation across all income levels.

Midtown will have a strong core with vibrant activity hubs and public places for community gathering, surrounded by diverse, inclusive, and complete residential neighborhoods.  Destinations and neighborhoods throughout Midtown will be safe and convenient to navigate by any form of transportation, especially by active and public transportation modes.
