Welcome to Columbia Falls!

May 9, 2019: Take our River’s Edge Park Development Plan Survey!

The City of Columbia Falls is preparing a development master plan for River’s Edge City Park. The City’s primary objectives for the Park are to improve the recreational appeal, safety and operation for all users while minimizing adverse impacts to scenery and the environment. The plan will include amenities for the new fishing pond as well as the rest of the 28 acre park. The plan is intended to guide development of the Park over the next several years. We will be soliciting public input on the plan until June 11, 2019. There will be a public informational work session regarding the plan at City Hall, 130 6th St West on June 20, 2019 from 4 PM to 7 PM with a presentation at 6 PM. We would like your input in determining what development, features and amenities you would like to see at the Park. Please click the link above to take our survey! Paper surveys also available at City Hall.
