Help Protect Our Community
Out-of-state developers want to change our rural way of life.
Friends for Responsible Rural Growth's (FFRRG) goal is to keep the rural character of our community intact. If unchecked development is allowed in rural Flathead Valley, there's no returning to the rural way of life Flathead Valley residents value today and hope to preserve for future generations.
Stop the Montarise Development!   103 new Residential Housing Units.
PLEASE mark your calendars to attend the commissioners hearing on May 23 at 10:15am in their chambers for what will hopefully be our FINAL STAND on stopping Montarise's zoning change. To get this done, we need everyone to write letters and plan on attending the meeting in person. Once again, numbers matter - maybe even more so now!

800 South Main, Third Floor
Old Courthouse
Kalispell, Montana

If you can't attend the meeting please EMAIL the County Commissioners and their clerk, Dori Mager, by May 19th.
