HELENA, Mont. – The City of Helena will host an open house on May 24 to discuss the Downtown Helena Multimodal Plan. The open house will take place from 3:30-6:30 p.m. at the Downtown Helena Inc. offices, located at 330 N. Jackson Street. The community is invited to stop by any time during the open house to discuss the project.

The event will serve as an opportunity for the public to ask questions about the plan and provide feedback on initial concepts. In March of this year, a planning team started gathering public input on connectivity in Helena’s downtown area. A survey and interactive commenting map were available Information gathered during the visioning phase is helping guide development of the plan. 

The area of focus for this planning effort is within the Helena Downtown Business Improvement District (BID). The plan will also consider connections between the broader Helena transportation system and the Downtown area.   

The Downtown Helena Multimodal Plan will blend several of the City’s past plans and studies into one document that will prioritize projects and identify areas of infrastructure potential and inadequacy. Ultimately, the plan will identify feasible options to provide safe and efficient connections between the Centennial Trail, Great Northern, Downtown core, and the walking mall to promote a unified and connected Downtown.
