Bozeman is safe. Let's keep it that way.
Bozeman Public Safety Center: a 4-in-1 investment in Bozeman residents, families and community.
Bozeman is Growing
Emergency Service Needs are on the Rise
Facilities are Failing & Cramped
Without an investment in the footprint of Fire Station #1 or courts since the 60’s and 70’s, these facilities are ill equipped for future community growth. The boiler at Fire Station #1 is failing, and due to cramped spaces crime victims are forced to wait for trial sitting next to perpetrators without privacy.
Four-In-One Investment in Bozeman Families
The Bozeman Public Safety Center is a one-stop safety hub with room for growth as the community grows. By investing NOW in our safe neighborhoods, rapid emergency service response time and increased population needs, Bozeman taxpayers can thoughtfully invest in continued high quality of life, while saving $2.25 million per year on construction inflation costs.
$36.9 million construction, equipment and furnishings investment on anexisting city-owned property will cost a typical home owner $101.78 peryear, assessed at a $292,000 home.
- City of Bozeman will offset cost by selling Fire Station #1 at an estimated $2.5 million.
- Defer the need for a 4th fire station for 6-8 years.
- Shifting fire station locations saves $1.2 million annually in operations.
