A New Road Map for the Future in Great Falls

Our little home on the somewhat prairie, somewhat mountainous front in central Montana is unique.  I know.  Everywhere says it.  It is probably true for many of them.  And it is true for Great Falls.  We are incredibly unique, just like everyone else.

The problem with that is we can't seem to figure out just what uniqueness we want to be known for.  Is it agriculture, art, technology or medical?  Recreational and retirement?  We really need to make up our minds.

Growth And How to Obtain and Sustain It in Great Falls

The last time that plan was updated was in 2013, using an internal staffing model.  For the future plan, the city will be using a consultant model instead.  You can read the full plan for 2013-2025 here.
