Steinmetz worked for the economic development organization previously, but most recently served as the Development Director for the Boys & Girls Club of the Hi-Line. She also has worked as a freelance writer and journalist for newspapers, television and radio.

“Krystal brings to this position exactly the right experience and knowledge to help Bear Paw Development continue to serve our region, including our local government partners,” said Paul Tuss, Bear Paw executive director. “We are fortunate to have Krystal re-joining the team at Bear Paw, as she is already making a big and noticeable difference in tackling planning and infrastructure projects in our area that will make northern Montana an even better place to live, raise a family and start a business.”

As director of community planning, Steinmetz will be responsible for annually updating Bear Paw Development’s Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy, working with local governments on growth policies and capital improvement plans and assisting with grant writing and administration for infrastructure projects. 

  “I look forward to working with local government officials, entrepreneurs and area residents on projects that improve the livability and attractiveness of the communities in our Economic Development District,” Steinmetz said. “It’s exciting to work on things that are critical to our area, but that might not otherwise happen. I enjoy the challenge of working with others to find practical solutions to difficult problems.”
