MONTANA – The Heritage Center Building Committee will hold a virtual meeting April 21, 2020 at 6 p.m. to allow the public to learn more about the design concept currently under development. The meeting will be held via the ZOOM conferencing platform.
The meeting link and call-in numbers are listed at the end of this notice. Helena Civic Television will stream the broadcast meeting live at helenacivictv.org/ and cable channel 189.
The Department of Administration’s Architecture & Engineering Division recently conducted a traffic study in partnership with Sanderson Stewart and the City of Helena on February 19-25 to analyze the impacts of the possible closure of a segment of 6th Avenue.
The current design Heritage Center concept would require the closure of 6th Avenue between North Roberts and North Sanders streets to accommodate connectivity between the existing Veterans and Pioneers Memorial Building and the new Montana Heritage Center location.
The virtual meeting format will allow interested persons to stream the meeting and learn about the conceptual design, results of the traffic study, ask questions, and share concerns.
Public comments and input must be submitted no later than May 5, 2020. Written comments may be submitted to Russ Katherman, Architecture & Engineering Division, PO Box 200103, Helena, MT 59620 or via email to HeritageCenter@mt.gov.
After the location of the new Heritage Center was selected in December 2019, the Building Committee held its first meeting January 2020 to begin designing the new building. The Committee is tasked with determining the structure, design, and look of the new Heritage Center, while also considering the needs of the Montana Historical Society, the Capitol Complex, and the public. The committee reports to Department of Administration Director John Lewis throughout this project.
