The Reservation is accessed by U.S. Highway 93, the primary transportation corridor in Western Montana that connects its two major cities, Missoula and Kalispell, and also connects travelers to Glacier National Park.
There are several parcels of Tribal land that could support commercial development and family-oriented recreational opportunities, without sacrificing the natural integrity of either the land or Tribal values. The Tribal Council is looking for a consultant/s that can determine the development costs, and expected return on investment for each property under consideration. Respondents’ may respond to one or more properties/tasks listed below depending on area of expertise.

Sixty per cent (60%) of the feasibility work has been completed on this project, and an architectural firm is currently working on conceptual drawings and preliminary cost estimates. Additional work needed includes an update of a pro forma analysis for fully furnishing and operating the bathhouse and additional amenities, such as a motel and small RV park.
2) Development of an RV park on Tribal Land west of Polson, Montana, that overlooks Flathead Lake.
3) Development of a Business Park North of Pablo, Montana on Highway 93. A site plan has been completed, and infrastructure development costs were estimated for this project in 2013.
4) Development of a commercial lot on Highway 93 in Polson (with limited lake frontage and known as the lot across from “Super 1”);
5) Redevelopment of the Blue Bay Campground on Flathead Lake;
6) Other lands (3 more parcels) to be identified by the Tribal Lands Office and Tribal Planning Director, including development of and lease of airplane hangars at a local airport; and
7) Assistance with a strategic land acquisition plan and planning process once the successful respondent is more familiar with the type of properties owned by the CSKT Tribes and area business development opportunities.
The goal is the best utilization of Tribal assets to create family-friendly businesses, more local jobs and new Tribal revenue. Each project must be analyzed from an economic development perspective to find the best balance.
