Community Meetings: Parking, Schools, Sidewalks & Sewers

Posted: Updated:

All around our community, leaders want your opinion on several different topics this week.

On Tuesday, the City of Billings and the Downtown Billings Association will discuss parking issues. On the ballot this fall, voters can approve a measure which could help create new independent parking commission, which some say would be more responsive to you.

The only problem, the ballot information does not fully explain the details and some people might get confused. The county will begin sending out ballots in mid-October.The parking forum meeting is from 11:30 AM to 1 PM at the First Interstate Bank Operations Center at 1800 Sixth Avenue North.

On Wednesday, you have a chance to learn more about the school bond and the two new middle schools. The $122.3 million bond will also be on the ballot for this November election. The measure will help fund the schools master facilities plan which includes a new middle school on the west end at 56th and Grand, the other in the Heights next to Bitterroot Elementary. The open house will focus on the building designs and site development as well as more information on the school bond. That will be Wednesday night from 6 to 8:30 downtown in the Lincoln Center Board Room at 415 North 30th Street.

In Lockwood, the community will come together on Monday and Tuesday night to discuss the growth of the city. City managers say 8,000 residents have concerns over the lack of sidewalks, street lights, sewer system and high school. Steering committee organizers say it's important changes are made by the community. Both meetings will take place in the Lockwood Eileen Johnson middle school commons at 7 PM. Everyone in the community is invited to attend.
