Tryon’s January 7 Great Falls City Commission Meeting Preview

Editors note: E-City Beat has requested and received permission to copy and paste Great Falls City Commissioner Rick Tryon’s reports from his public commissioner’s Facebook page, ‘Rick Tryon for a Greater Great Falls’.


As a way to partially fulfill my personal commitment to working for transparent and responsive City government I’ll be posting brief weekly previews and recaps of Great Falls City Commission work sessions and regular meetings.

The idea is to highlight a few of the upcoming City Commission meeting topics that would be especially relevant and interesting to local citizens and to encourage your feedback, ideas and input, through the comments section here and by your personal attendance at the meetings if possible.

You can find the full agenda and agenda packets for the upcoming meeting, as well as minutes for previous meetings, here –

WORK SESSION – Tuesday, January 7, 2020 – 4:30pm

Parking and Land Development Code Revisions – Craig Raymond. (Continued from December 3, 2019)

Development Review Update – Craig Raymond and Jim Rearden.

These items are very important to our efforts to streamline our development code and make sure Great Falls has a business friendly environment.

REGULAR MEETING – Tuesday January 7, 2020 – 7:00pm

Reappointment/Appointment to the Great Falls Planning Advisory Board/Zoning Commission.

Members Seeking Reappointment are Michael Wedekind (10/7/2015 – 12/31/2019) and Charles Pankratz (6/20/2017 – 12/31/2019)

Again, very important board appointments related to local planning and zoning.

As I mentioned earlier, please feel free to go look at the details in the agenda packet linked above for a comprehensive handling of the items to be discussed/decided and weigh in with any of your own comments or suggestions here.

This is your city government and these issues affect you and your family. YOU’RE THE BOSS.
