  3. Livability moving forward

    Hello everyone- I've been trying to comment for the past week and a half, but the site has yet to post my comments. If you have seen them, I apologize for the repeat. I, highly, recommend that anyone interested on how to move our focus forward mine the following sites for some great information. I believe utilizing the great work of other successful community programs, and adapting them for use in Missoula, would be the most effective use of our time and efforts. Obviously, not everything will be applicable/useful, but there are some terrific structural rubrics and data. Thank you all for your time - Michael Dorshorst
