Ribbon cutting assembly -Gardenwalk Neighborway Pilot!

Come celebrate our opening Gardenwalk Neighborway!

A quick overview: Neighborways are a grassroots effort to address street safety and connectivity which grew out of Common Good Missoula’s listening sessions and organizing efforts over the past two years.

Common Good leaders have been working hard on this project for nearly two years - reading every transportation policy in Missoula, imagining and designing a pilot, biking and walking the route, uncovering data, analyzing power, working with city staff to implement the pilot, working with elected officials to make it a political reality and organizing people throughout our membership organizations through movies, presentations, meetings, and conversations and much more. 

It's time to CELEBRATE!

Building on the City’s existing network of neighborhood greenways, Neighborways would reallocate a portion of existing street pavement and add barriers and striping, providing a safe, connected corridor across the city exclusively designated for pedestrians, cyclists, and wheelchair users. 

A pilot Neighborways route this spring is in development, but to expand the pilot in a meaningful way and demonstrate the full potential benefits Neighborways can provide, the City needs to see widespread support. That’s where you come in!

How you can get involved and support Neighborways - 3 opportunities:

  1. Share your story about street safety or challenges commuting sustainably. Are you concerned about street safety? Do you have a story about an injury or close call while walking, biking or rolling? Complete this brief survey and please share with friends and colleagues - the more responses we can collect, the better we can demonstrate the need for Neighborways. 

  2. Join the Neighborways Campaign team! The team meets monthly to strategize next steps and ways to build power and move this effort forward. No particular experience needed - just enthusiasm and interest in building a safer, better-connected Missoula!
  3. Attend the ribbon-cutting ceremony and turnout leaders to celebrate the start of the pilot route with us!
