As a community, we know we need enhanced, high-quality commercial and multifamily options in order to meet the needs of incoming and existing businesses that are poised for growth.
As part of the community’s ongoing efforts to meet those needs, Mayor John Engen and the Missoula Economic Partnership will host the second annual Developer Showcase June 9, 2014. During the conference, high-quality commercial developers from the greater Northwest region will meet with city and business leaders, including many of Missoula’s professionals who work with commercial developers. They will learn about the breadth and depth of Missoula’s assets, both infrastructure and people. And, participants will tour Missoula’s development areas and designated Urban Renewal Districts (often with available Tax Increment Financing opportunities), accompanied by key officials including Missoula Redevelopment Agency Director Ellen Buchanan and Missoula Development Services Director Mike Haynes.
2014 materials will be available to developers at the showcase. The background materials from the first annual 2013 Developer Showcase are available here. These pages include information and contact information for city officials key to commercial developers, as well as some resources from Missoula’s professional community who presented at the conference: building development professionals, infrastructure needs, professional services, commercial real estate services, local financing options and alternative / government financing options.
As Mayor Engen told Showcase participants, “Missoula is a good place and we intend to keep it that way. We look forward to working with you on that future.”
