Montana’s Rocky Mountain Front

This report analyzes the Front’s land, people, and economy, how the region has changed in important ways during the past several decades, and the potential impact of the proposed Rocky Mountain Heritage Act on the Front.

The report, “Montana’s Rocky Mountain Front” (500K PDF), analyzes the recent history and current conditions for the Front’s land, people, and economy. The study reviews the proposed Rocky Mountain Heritage Act and its potential impact on the Front’s economic future, then discusses how to best leverage the area’s existing economic assets — stunning landscapes, transportation hubs, relatively high average earnings and per capita income, and overall stability — to enhance future economic growth and prosperity.

This page graphically summarizes the study. For more detail, see the Full Report or the Summary and Discussion.
