Downtown Bozeman Improvement Plan Update Process
The Bozeman City Commission held a public hearing on the Downtown Bozeman Improvement Plan on April 15, 2019. The Commission packet is available in the City’s electronic archive and includes the draft plan, staff report, detailed public comment summary, and other information. After considering the draft document, dozens of public comments, recommendation from the Planning Board, and the recommendation from Community Development Staff they approved the document with some amendments. A final draft incorporating the revisions is being developed and will posted to this website when it is complete. The next phase of the project is implementation. Implementation will be coordinated with other City work plan items in the years ahead. The video of the April 15th meeting is available for online streaming.”
The planning process began in June 2018 with the selection of a team of national, regional and local consultants including Agency Landscape + Planning (Cambridge, MA), Leland Consulting (Portland, OR), Intrinsik Architecture (Bozeman, MT) and Groundprint (Bozeman, MT).
