Community Builders Webinar Series

The Community Builders Webinar Series showcases the stories of people in the business of building stronger communities. We feature developers, planners, and community leaders who are at work creating complete neighborhoods, growing diverse economies, and protecting natural assets.


Upcoming Webinars


Missoula’s Old Sawmill District

Ed and Leslie Wetherbee will discuss their development in the Old Sawmill District of Missoula, Montana. This project is nothing short of a rebirth for 46 acres along the Clark Fork River in the heart of the city.  Once a booming sawmill complex, this property has sat vacant since the early 1990s. The Wetherbees are working to revive the site by establishing a lively urban neighborhood where people live, work, and play. Plans call for a dynamic combination of single- and multi-family residences, mixed-use commercial space, and a 14-acre city park that extends an existing trail system along the river. The Wetherbees will discuss their experiences and lessons learned in planning a mixed-use neighborhood, working with the community and local government, and dealing with financing hurdles.

eligible for 1.0 AICP CM credits, pending APA approval
