Groups behind One Big Sky aim to flesh out plans for the downtown Billings project

A standing-room-only crowd heard the most detailed One Big Sky project plans to date Wednesday, and most Billings City Council members were on hand in the lead-up to deciding April 9 whether to support pursuing the ambitious economic development strategy with a $100,000 contribution of taxpayer money.

Groups including Big Sky Economic Development http://www.bigskyeconomicdevelopment.org/ , the Downtown Billings Partnership, the Billings Chamber of Commerce and the Tourism Business Improvement District have already committed $575,000 toward the next two phases of the year-long study, aimed at further developing two downtown districts — one along the medical corridor, the other a hospitality district featuring a convention center and, perhaps, a parking garage as its centerpieces.
