Great Falls Visitor Center Could See Changes

Posted: Updated:
GREAT FALLS -

The Great Falls Visitor Center is usually the first stop for not only tourists exploring the area but also people and business owners thinking of moving to the Electric City.

"We thought it was important to get the economic development organizations together with the tourism groups to really put together a visitor center that when people walked out they say wow Great Falls really has it together," says Brett Doney of the Great Falls Development Authority.

The city is hoping to move toward a partnership between tourism and business agencies.

"The partnership is that it is a city owned building and a city owned park. We are very proud of this park and proudly fly the flag outside, but the center would be operated by the business organizations primarily by the tourism groups," Doney adds.

Doney says the city and partners are still working out the details, but he believes changes will take place before the next summer season.

"We are also going to be doing a remake of the interior of the center. We are very excited about that. Its going to be a big community effort."

The city hopes to completely renovate the visitor center by bringing in more exhibits and drive visitors toward buying merchandise at local businesses.
