Downtown Helena Multimodal Plan

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The City of Helena is developing the Downtown Helena Multimodal Plan which will blend several of the City’s past plans and studies into one document that will help prioritize projects and identify areas of infrastructure potential and inadequacy. The intent of the Downtown Helena Multimodal Plan is to identify feasible options to improve and promote safe and efficient connections between the Centennial Trail, Great Northern, Downtown core, and the walking mall. The plan will target ways to promote a unified and connected Downtown by identifying primary non-motorized connections and branding opportunities.

As part of the effort, a Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) will be developed in coordination with City of Helena staff, the Downtown Business Improvement District (BID), and local business owners to identify capital improvement needs. The intent of the CIP is to promote and encourage redevelopment and investment opportunities in underserved areas of Downtown Helena. The plan will also include a Main Street Grant Report outlining infrastructure needs and investment opportunities for Downtown Helena over the next 20 years.
