Your Community, Your Code

This platform is intended to catalog your ideas on how to improve Bozeman's Unified Development Code and provide an opportunity for community engagement. 

What is the Unified Development Code?

The Unified Development Code (commonly called the "UDC") is a set of regulations aimed to protect the public health, safety and general welfare. These regulations recognize and balance the various rights and responsibilities relating to land ownership, use and development. The UDC is just one chapter of the Bozeman Municipal Code but it covers a wide range of topics such as setbacks, building height, allowed uses, landscaping, affordable housing and parking. Some regulations apply city-wide while others are district-specific.  

What is the Community Platform?

We agree with Mark Twain that "Continuous improvement is better than delayed perfection." Our development regulations need to be adaptable to address the evolving needs of our growing City. This Community Platform is the place to provide your input about the rules and regulations that impact Bozeman’s built environment. Proposed edits will be sorted and batched on a biannual basis for the City Commission to take action in April and October. Comments regarding queued edits will be curated and posted per topic. 

The UDC is a living document that needs continued maintenance by its citizens. Thank you for participating.
