Growing Health in 2018
March 2018: Missoula, Montana continues to be a leader in sustainable transportation, with much work to do on the horizon.  While Missoula is consistently recognized for healthy transportation options, the gaps in the system are preventing the community from reaching full potential.  Bike lanes and sidewalks stop and start, crossing big roads is too dangerous, transit stops running at 7pm and not at all on some days and the motor vehicle system is full of crashes and pollution.  While our focus is to increase walking, cycling and transit, we also work to make driving safer and more flowing. Missoula has an adopted policy to triple walk/bike/transit modes over the next couple decades.  This is a very doable goal, with concerted effort to both build and maintain a good road, trail and plaza system.  How we each choose to move around affects our own personal health, community health and planetary health.  Let's grow health togehter.  email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

December 2017

MIST, and our flagship program, Free Cycles Missoula, contintue to grow strength and make change in Missoula, Montana.  This has been a busy year, mainly stablilizing and organizing the 2 acre property we bought last year in the heart of Missoula.  This is laying the foundation for program expansion in 2018.  

We continue to work on Roundabout policy, a pedestrian master plan, new bike lanes and trails, the Van Buren roundabouts slated for next summer and keeping strong involvement at the community bicycle shop.

Sweet Summer

The Missoula summers are so sweet for so many events and projects.   We have much gratitude for living in this beautiful valley high in the mountains.  Did you know Missoula is the largest city in North America that is completely surrounded by the Rocky Mountains?  As such, this gives us all more responsibility to keep this place healthy, strong and in tune with our local eco system.
