About 20 members of the Chamber of Commerce and Chamber Visitor’s Bureau met Feb. 1 to discuss the priorities for the next year. The meeting was to prepare for the upcoming resort tax application.
Ideas ranging from bleachers for events to a smartphone app to road lights on Spur Road were tossed around and discussed before members cast votes to determine importance of each of the 21 proposed items.
One of the top items, as decided by the group, was to request money to fund the first phase in a three-step marketing plan for the town. The group also wants to fund the wayfinding signs around Big Sky, as well as an entryway monument off Highway 191. Perhaps equally as important, the group decided, was hiring an executive director for the Chamber. The Biggest Skiing in America community marketing campaign rounded out the top five categories the group may apply for.
