Ideas From Citizens For A Greater Great Falls – Part Two


A couple of weeks ago I posted the following question on my public Facebook page:

What does, or what would, make Great Falls unique in terms of being a destination hot spot for tourism, business, and new residents?

There are currently 389 responses. Here I am continuing this regular series of blog posts on E-City Beat highlighting some of the great ideas coming from the taxpaying citizens of our wonderful community. You can read Part One of the series here.

I’ve heard variations of the theme suggested in the following comments many times over the past couple of years.

A little innovation and thinking outside the box would go a long ways towards revitalizing our town.

Here’s some more excellent ideas to chew over in the comments below. What can we do better to make Great Falls a real destination spot?

One of the major criticisms I hear most often of our current ‘leadership’ in Great Falls is that they don’t really listen to the citizens of our community when it comes to ideas and suggestions to pull us out of our funk. As far as I can tell, the BEST ideas come from the ‘bottom’ up, not the top down.

Stay tuned for more, lots more. Feel free to contribute your ideas to the comments section on this blog or on our Facebook page.
