Press release

Bear Paw Development Corp. announced it has hired Lisa Moisey of Missoula as the organization's director of community development, responsible for managing a local government infrastructure portfolio of approximately $25 million.

Bear Paw Development has served as a federally recognized economic development district for 49 years and during that time has partnered with local governments to assist in constructing and rehabilitating public works projects that include drinking water and wastewater systems, bridges, senior citizen centers, hospitals, sidewalks and other local infrastructure. 

  Moisey spent nearly 20 years working for Missoula County in a variety of positions, including most recently as the Parks, Trails and Open Lands Program manager, where she managed a system of 96 parks and 45 miles of shared-use paths and trails and administered a $10 million open space bond program. Moisey previously served as parks cordinator and land use planner for Missoula County and was a transportation planner for the Montana Department of Transportation. 

"Lisa brings a wealth of knowledge to this position and has exactly the type of experience we need to continue to properly serve the needs of our local government member entities," said Paul Tuss, executive director of Bear Paw Development. "The foundation of our organization is the work we have accomplished with our local governments to upgrade and rehabilitate their infrastructure systems over the past five decades. This work will continue with Lisa as our Director of Community Development."

"I am excited to assist the communities of northern Montana with their infrastructure needs and to help local governments secure funds and manage these very important projects," Moisey said. "Aging infrastructure is a problem for communities throughout the country. I'm pleased to be part of the team at Bear Paw Development that finds practical solutions for these very real challenges."

Moisey holds a bachelor's degree in geography from the University of Minnesota.
