City of Cut Bank, Montana

City Pavilion

The City of Cut Bank is a small community located approximately 60 miles from St. Mary’s and the east entrance of Glacier National Park’s Going to the Sun Highway. Highway 2 runs through the center of Cut Bank and is a primary route to Glacier, and one of the City’s major attractions is its park on Highway 2. As the location for several events, the park plays a vital role in attracting visitors to the City. The City had long wanted an overhead cover for the raised concrete stage platform at the City Park. The lack of coverage reduced the park’s potential to host events and attract guests. The community had tried to raise funds to cover the stage, but the cost had been prohibitive. With assistance from Great West Engineering, the City applied for and received $99,687 from Montana’s Tourism Infrastructure Grant (TIG) Program. Great West also helped the City request funds from private foundations, including First Interstate Bank, Stockman Bank, and Farm Credit Services. Great West also assisted the City with project planning, design, bidding, construction management, and field inspections. Since its completion in August 2017, the Pavilion has met the City’s objectives by enabling organizations and civic groups to host events that attract people to Cut Bank.
