The Draft Plan will be released on Oct. 16, 2023 through online channels at gallatinvalleyplan.bozeman.net.

• A presentation will kick off the event.
• Light refreshments will be provided.
As a representative of the Working Group, Gallatin County Commissioner Jennifer Boyer, expressed, “Sensitive lands are foundational to our quality of life and why our area is unique and loved by residents and visitors. We want to ensure the variety of implementation strategies – voluntary, incentives, or regulatory – provide a balanced approach and offer landowners and partners options and support.”
The Draft Plan features vibrant summaries of our community’s vision and values, creative sensitive land models based on authoritative data sources, and honest reflection of recommendations that can be implemented throughout the Valley.
The Draft Plan process was an opportunity to debut a dialogue between city, county, agency, constituents, landowners, and native voices.
Those who are not able to attend the Debut Party can review the Draft Plan and online at gallatinvalleyplan.bozeman.net starting Oct. 16. The comment period will run through Nov. 5.
