Adopt a Traffic Circle

Do you live near a traffic circle? We would like to help you make your circle vibrant and lovely.

Most were established at the request of the neighborhood property owners. These traffic circles were constructed and funded in collaboration with the City of Missoula in order to provide traffic safety. Initially, corner property owners volunteered to maintain the landscaping. Now that many years have passed, the City is establishing a program to maintain them.

We are inviting you as an individual or with a group of friends and neighbors, to adopt a traffic circle. The commitment is renewable every 2 years.

We have established some grants and you can apply for up to $150.00 for purchases for your traffic circle, such as plant materials, ooze tubes, etc. Expenditures must be pre-approved on grant application before claims are made.  We have also teamed up with the Missoula County Extension to provide assistance with your adoption. The Master Gardeners would love to work with you and make your traffic circle attractive and sustainable.

The Traffic Circle Pollinator Plant Grant 

In 2015, Councilwoman Heidi West applied for and received a Traffic Circle Grant from the Office of Neighborhoods to create pollinator plates for the Traffic Circles in Missoula. Heidi recruited some 4-year to 10-year olds to design and make the plates at the Clay Studio of Missoula. The metal and fabrication was donated by George Ybarra. The Clay Studios also donated materials.

Thank you and we look forward to a beautiful spring, summer, and fall
