Big Updates Coming to Downtown

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

The Downtown Billings Association is excited about announcing even more positive changes coming this year.

Moving forward in to 2014, the DBA is planning several big projects that could revolutionize the downtown landscape. Here are just a few of them.

"The Empire Parking Structure is going to be, the ribbon cutting is going to be in April. So a 560 parking stall, parking garage on Montana Avenue with 17,000 square feet of retail."

"This month, we are having our first Pocket Park Alleyscape meeting. So we are going forward with green space in downtown," said Lisa Harmon, Executive Director of the DBA.

"We have a location right now, it's on 3rd and 27th next to First Congregational Church. They've got a green space and they need some help we want to do kind of a partnership with them."

With projects as extensive as these, Harmon says the support of Billings residents becomes more and more crucial.

"We need the public to continue to input so that we manage and grow downtown in the way that the public wants us to. That it serves them, that it excites them."

Harmon also says the DBA will be sponsoring a call to artist the end of January for pedestal art. This art will be blended in with the landscaping in various areas throughout downtown.
