Earlier this month, the BMCC withdrew its support of application for the grant – while refusing to take public comment from the 40+ […]

by jhwygirl A long-term free fall of the Missoula housing market along with all the foreclosures, collapse of the mortgage and banking industry and recession that goes along with it. Long term.
