How One Rural Montana Community Combats the Loss of Their Major Employer

May 15, 2017View for printing

When the 2015 Montana Legislature passed Senate Bill 411, the community of Boulder, Montana, was faced with two choices: wait for the change to occur or take the opportunity to rebrand their community.

The lasting community bonds and discovery of various growth opportunities help to lead the charge for a bolder Boulder.
