Downtown Master Plan, Missoula, MT.



Missoula’s Downtown Master Plan is a project of the Downtown Missoula Partnership (DMP), which is a collaboration between the Downtown Missoula Business Improvement District, the Missoula Downtown Association, and the Missoula Downtown Foundation. Jason King, leading the Dover, Kohl & Partners Team (DK&P), led a multidisciplinary team of seven specialty consultants and was largely responsible for land use, visualizations, historic preservation, and community engagement.


The Downtown Master Plan covers all aspects of city administration and community life: land use, infrastructure, housing, parking, street design, urban design, historic preservation, and retail and commercial business development. The Master Plan Update will serve to guide decisions over the next 10 years, impacting Missoula’s historic downtown and adjoining neighborhoods, including modifications to land use and planning regulations, public and private investment decisions, and prioritization for the allocation of municipal and community resources.


Process: The Downtown Missoula Master Plan update process is based on authentic and robust community engagement. During the week-long charrette, Jason King and his team interacted with over 1,000 studio visitors, meeting attendees, and hands-on participants who helped shape the development of the plan. The project team made a specific effort to involve groups and constituents who do not typically participate in charrettes and other public processes. The project also has a large online component offering continuous community feedback.
