MATR Launches The Montana Community Map. Would you like to be the “Keeper” of your community?
It is illegal to have a sheep in the cab of your truck without a chaperone.
In Montana, it is illegal for married women to go fishing alone on Sundays, and illegal for unmarried women to fish alone at all.
46 out of Montana’s 56 counties are considered “frontier counties” with an average population of 6 or fewer people per square mile.
While this are all amazing information, it’s more important to know that there are great communities in Montana for businesses, families and your next investment. The Montana Community Map will eventually have every community in Montana listed with information about that community by a “Keeper” who stands ready to answer your questions, help you find more information and show you why it’s an amazing place to raise your family, start your business or experience during your next trip to Montana.
We’re actively recruiting “Keepers” for each community not already hosted by an individual. Are you proud of your community? Do you know a lot about it that you’d like to make available to people interested in it?
We hope this will be a productive way to increase the visibility and importance of each Montana community so be creative. This map will be the foundation for a much greater ability for Montana and it’s companies to attract talent as well as new ventures. I frankly hope that you’ll see what other communities are doing and then try to do even more. There are ways to generate significant interest without spending a lot of money.
We’re asking for “Keepers” to populate the information about each town on a regular basis. There will be static information section for population, city stats, gov. sites etc. as well as a constantly updated section that includes what’s great about the community and what’s happening to make it a truly wonderful place to live or visit like career and real estate opportunities, housing and broadband availability, child care facilities, social activities etc.
If you’re interested in being a “Keeper” for a community not currently highlighted on the map, please contact russ (at)matr.net or call me at 406-531-8119.
The Continental Divide runs along the crests of the Rocky Mountains from Canada to Mexico, literally dividing the waters of the North American Continent. Montana is known as the headwaters state because much of the water which flows to the rest of the nation comes from the mountains of Montana.
