Dave Torell, executive director of the Clearwater Resource Council, wore a Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation vest and cowboy boots as he presided over a group of eight Seeley Lake residents Monday evening. A Realtor, a timber industry representative and a “newcomer” who moved to the area four years ago all listened with other community members as Torell outlined his idea to launch a framework to empower Seeley Lake residents.
“The purpose,” said Torell, “is to enhance the resiliency of the Clearwater Valley.”
Using a conservation background and an emphasis on Seeley Lake’s rural way of life, Torell urged the nine attendees (one hailed from Missoula) on Monday night to band together in order to tackle the valley’s myriad issues. The Boy Scout Bridge closure, affordable housing and septic tanks all figured into Torell’s analysis of the Seeley Lake situation.
