Infrastructure development for the 2016 celebration of the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service in Gardiner, Montana and the north entrance to Yellowstone, provided a unique opportunity to compare resident and visitor attitudes, image and spending before and after development. This report provides the resident study results. Significant differences in image, quality of life attributes, and tourism support were found between the two years pointing to both positive and negative outcomes.
