Thanks to everyone who has provided feedback!
Based on public feedback, we have revised the draft Climate Ready Missoula plan (first released January 13, revised edition released February 22, 2020). The website includes the revisions to goals and strategies as well.
The strategies presented in this plan are intentionally high-level; they identify what needs to be done to prepare for and adapt to climate change. All the details for each strategy - who should be involved in implementing it, how it can be best accomplished, timeline, costs and benefits, funding sources - will need to be determined in the implementation phase.
Summary of recommended next steps:
"It will take all of us."
From the plan:
"Given the far-reaching impacts of climate change, it is no surprise that the strategies presented in this plan touch on nearly every aspect of Missoula County: our health, our economy, our built environment, our natural environment, and our social cohesion. Implementation of the plan will thus, by necessity, involve dozens of organizations, individuals, city and county departments, and other government agencies that are active in these areas. It will take all of us. And given the urgency, the sooner we get started the better."
