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. http://www.vocativ.com/interactive/culture/society/livability-index-2014/ http://www.aarp.org/research/ppi/liv-com2/resources/the-livability-index.html http://livable.org/about-us/what-is-livability http://www.livablecities.org/ http://www.dot.gov/livability Obviously, not everything will be applicable/useful, but there are some terrific structural rubrics and data. Thank you all for your time - Michael Dorshorst
