Shoveling Need

Call to Action!

Hey East Missoula Friends/Neighbors,

We need your help. Do you like shoveling? Do you have a snowplow and love putting it to use?

We have a friend in our neighborhood, with a disability, who would like to be able to reach out to our community to get their property shoveled when/if we have a snowstorm. We probably have many other neighbors with this need as well.

This request has prompted us to form a new list of people to call upon when the need arises. If you’d like to be on this snow-removal list please send us a message or give us a call at 406-686-2288. We’ll need your phone number too, in case we need to contact you quickly, in emergency situations.

Thank you! We appreciate you! If you’d like to be removed from the list at a later date, you can simply notify us the same way.

Earth Day Clean-Up

We’ve got a plan in the works. If you’d like to be a part of the committee we’d love to have you join our meetings. We’re cleaning up our neighborhoods on the weekend of April 24-25, in lieu of Earth Day.

Earth Day Clean Up East Missoula United

We’ll have a dumpster available (in the Burnich parking lot), as well as some recycling options. If you are able to help with the logistics of these things please holler. The main thing we need is for you to spread the word! We would love to have the neighborhood bustling with people pitching in. Can you mark your calendar? Would you share these dates with your neighbor(s)? We would be so grateful.

Our friends at Hellgate Canyon Storage have graciously offered to sponsor this event. If you have interest in being a sponsor too, please let us know. We are looking for all of the support we can get.

Please contact us with any questions and/or if you’d like to be part of the planning committee. We would love your input and assistance. We will have a few Zoom meetings leading up to the event – you are welcome to join them. Message us for a link.

No More Storage Units

You might remember the first project we worked on in October of 2020. The County Commissioners met to make a decision on some new zoning in the Ole’s parking lot. Ole’s is right in the center of our small community. There are residents facing that lot and we already have too many storage units out here. Our community didn’t want more.

We took action spreading the word throughout our community to stop this zoning from being passed. A petition was created, a FB page for an extra element of communication and our core group of action takers formed.

East Missoulians united and were able to collaborate with the masses in our community and have a profound impact at the Commissioners’ meeting. The commissioners decided to deny the zoning request. We had a win in the midst of a pandemic and election season where things were feeling bleak.

We have big dreams for our community and uniting everyone. We’re doing it as East Missoula United. Join us!
