In terms of support for various “conservation areas,” survey results (Fig I-7) are consistent with trends already highlighted that indicate a general preference for maintaining the pastoral setting of Bigfork and its surrounding area.  However, as with all areas in the survey, it is important to remember that respondents did not have cost information when selecting their preferences.  Thus, while certain areas received very strong support, the costs of actually pursuing some of these improvements would doubtlessly diminish public ardor.  Conversely, as Bigfork is an unincorporated entity, many such improvements are pursued by civic and religious organizations, The Bigfork Development Corporation, and private benefactors.  Comments in this section are generally consistent with the data presented.
