HELENA - In May, Governor Steve Bullock launched the "Main Street Montana Project" aimed at improving the business climate in Montana.
Bullock and Montana business and civic leaders hosted roundtable discussions with business owners in several Montana communities.
Bullock says by asking business owners what they need, his administration will be able to help them grow.
Now the Main Street Montana Project is looking for online feedback; project organizers say that the roundtable discussions provided a strong foundation of data, but "we're not done listening."
The goal now is to identify the specific needs of each county in Montana through community surveys; the information collected from these surveys will help the project develop proposals to create jobs and encourage business growth.
The project website states:
