The newly formed nonprofit landowners group has vowed to “monitor” the development of Glacier Park Inc.’s new campground along River Bend Drive while also working to maintain the community’s character.

“This area is experiencing a lot of growth and I hope that we as a community can work together to shape and guide that growth in a manner that we can all live with,” said local resident and board member Jill Yuhas. “We want to become a resource for this community.”
