News this week:

1)   TONIGHT – a presentation of Findings & Recommendations for the Northeast neighborhood – 6pm @ the Ellen Theater

· Over the weekend, a multi-disciplinary team of nationally recognized professionals associated with American Institute of Architects (called "the R/UDAT”—Regional/Urban Design Assistance Team) visited  Bozeman, volunteering their time to identify ways to encourage desirable change in our community, and preserve our unique sense of place, specifically in Bozeman’s Northeast Neighborhood.  On Friday night many Bozemanites participated in an open forum that offered public input and local perspective on the northeast neighborhood and greater Bozeman area. Tonight they present their findings and recommendations at 6pm at the Ellen Theater. Please visit for more information.

2)   Turn Water Into Wheels!
