4-LANE BUILD OUT OF RESERVE DRIVE:
We received a reply letter for MDT Director Mike Tooley on a request for re-designation of Reserve Drive to part of the state primary system. This change offers the potential for accelerating the build-out of Reserve Drive to four between US 93 and US 2. He said that the evaluation of this road project will be part of a review for the entire state with an estimated completion date of December 2019.
CITY COUNCIL CONTEMPLATES ADDITIONAL INCENTIVES FOR DOWNTOWN DEVELOPMENT:

THE EVENT AT REBECCA FARM – A PLACE FOR EVERYONE:
Celebrating 30 years of sanctioned eventing in the Flathead Valley, The Event will take place July 24-28 at Rebecca Farm, just minutes West of Downtown Kalispell.
Whether you’re a repeat attendee, or taking part for the first time, there’s something for everyone at The Event at Rebecca Farm. Volunteering provides a ‘backstage pass’ to the horses, the scenery, and the comradery involved in three-day eventing with no prior horse experience necessary. World-class shopping and food vendors will satisfy all tastes, while a kid zone makes the event fun for the whole family, featuring face painting, pony rides, arts and crafts, pony classes, mini golf, and more, all of which are completely free.
The Event at Rebecca Farm is a world-class, community-oriented event featuring courses that range from novice to Olympic qualifier. Competitors compete in the three main disciplines of eventing: dressage, cross-country, and show jumping.
“They say it takes a village – we have our own version: It takes a valley,” Sarah Broussard, The Event’s organizer expresses. “And we are hoping to see even more attendees from the Flathead this year. There’s truly a place for everyone at The Event.”
