Buildings impact our lives every day. Building a community center for Missoula is no exception. The way a building is built influences how comfortable we are during the cold winters and hot summers, the quality of air we breathe indoors, and the amount of money we have leftover after paying utility bills – to name just a few examples. They are also a big part of Missoula’s carbon pollution (52%, according to 2014 data), and a big part of the solution to addressing climate change locally. While we know buildings will be a climate solution, the details of how we will do this in Missoula are still uncertain.
