Resident Survey

This survey is closed and the responses are being analyzed will be posted on the Updates + Resources page when available.

In September, Glacier Country Tourism (GCT) kicked off a year-long destination stewardship planning process needed to balance visitor growth with the long-term health and vibrancy of Montana’s communities, natural resources and quality of life for our residents. 

The resident survey is a foundational step of the destination stewardship planning process with the goal to identify and define general attitudes towards living in Western Montana’s Glacier Country and tourism’s impact on resident quality of life.

Please take this survey if you are a resident of Flathead, Glacier, Lake, Lincoln, Mineral, Missoula or Ravalli or Sanders county. Your response will help identify and gauge perceptions on a variety of key characteristics with respect to livability, culture, economy and sense of place for Western Montana.

Except for the first question verifying you are a resident of Western Montana, all questions are optional, and you may answer or skip questions. This research aims to answer the following questions.

  • What do residents think of their county as a place to live?
  • What are the most important attributes of a resident’s quality of life?
  • How do residents view the tourism industry and its impact on their county?
