Community Vision

The Big Sky Community Vision was developed by you, the community, after months of public engagement where you were asked "What do you love about Big Sky?" and "What would you improve about Big Sky?". Community members identified various components of what brought them to Big Sky, what keeps them in Big Sky, and what they would like to see in the future. These components were brought together to create the community vision, which is displayed below under four overarching themes.

Our Recreation

A community of outdoor enthusiasts drawn here initially as a visitor, and stay for the opportunity to live, work, and play within minutes of their doorstep.

Our Natural Environment

A community nestled in the center of pristine national forest and abundant wildlife that is actively working to grow while advocating for preservation of its surrounding ecosystem.

Our People

A community of welcoming, like-minded people; families and friends, faces new and old, that seek personal connections and to help one another.

Our Character

A community driven by its shared values that offers a high quality of life, access to opportunity, sustainable economic prosperity, stewardship, and a sense of place, to all.
