Join your fellow midtown peeps for the November Midtown Mixer – hosted by Glacier Ice Rink. This month’s mixer will be located at the Missoula Fairgrounds in the Home Arts Building (#35), where they will have beverages provided by Great Burn Brewing and appetizers provided by Community Medical Center.

FREE ice skating at Glacier Ice Rink from 7 to 8 pm! Head over to the rink after the mixer for FREE ice skating, bring the family!

Glacier Ice Rink, operated by the nonprofit Missoula Area Youth Hockey Association (MAYHA) was founded on the Missoula Fairgrounds in 1997 by a group of volunteers. The rink has since grown to serve thousands of participants and spectators each year through its hockey, skating and curling programs. Glacier Ice Rink relies on the support of sponsors and donors to offset its operating costs and keep its programs affordable.
 
Glacier Ice Rink supports the Fairgrounds bond on the November ballot. The $19 million, 20-year bond would help fund a dedicated livestock center, a third sheet of ice, and enhance green space on the Fairgrounds. Help us create more opportunities for expanded recreation, agricultural education and community connection by voting FOR the Fairgrounds this November!

Online Visioning Survey to Follow in October

ECONorthwest, SERA Design and our team of economists, transportation planners and urban designers met with over 200 Missoulians this week to gather ideas and feedback for the Midtown Master Plan. Housing, bicycle and pedestrian safety, parking and road connectivity were among the discussion topics during the community visioning workshop and small group meetings.
An online survey will be published on MidtownMasterplan.com in October for more Missoulians to participate in the proces (a follow up email will be sent when the survey is live.)

What do you love most about Midtown? What do you think is missing? Now is the time to give your feedback to our design team so they can take the suggestions and work on drafting the preliminary plan for community input.

The first plan drafts will be presented to the public in early 2023. Email us with any questions at midtown@missoulamidtown.com. Updates on the process will be posted on the Midtown website.
