Planners with the City of Missoula will be launching a new tool that asks residents to share and then see what they love most about Missoula.

Planning manager for Development Services with the city, Laval Means, said the first opportunity to discover asset mapping will be Wednesday, October 1 in the gallery of the Rocky Mountain School of Photography, at 216 North Higgins.

"We're asking people to tell us what they love about Missoula and where it might be located, so that we can start to get a sense of where the highly valued assets and treasures are around Missoula," Mean said. "We're doing this so that while we're thinking about growing and changing in the future, we have a good sense about the places that are valued so that we can keep them preserved or conserved in some way."

The event will take place Wednesday and Thursday, October 1 and 2, at the Rocky Mountain School of Photography from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days. There will be a public open house on October 3 from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the lobby of the Florence Hotel. There will also be 'treasure mapping' sessions on October 1 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Double Tree Hotel, and again on October 2 in the Governor's Room of the Florence Hotel from 6 to 8 p.m.
