Bozeman City Commission
Monday January 23rd – 6:00 pm
City Hall Bozeman | Montana
N 7 Rehab | MURB
Commission Resolution No. 4770
The program, known as N7 Rehab, provides grants focused on rehabilitation of existing buildings through façade, streetscape, and landscaping enhancements. The program made smaller grants for demolition activities. Grants under the program are for 15% of eligible project costs not to exceed a maximum grant amount of $50,000.
The program was a component of several modest successes; the best example of a recent success being the new façade work converting the vacant Vans IGA building to the Universal Athletic corporate headquarters.
The proposed Midtown Tax Increment Finance Assistance Program (TIFAP) incentivizes projects creating significant new taxable value that also facilitate the five blight remediation goals of the Midtown Urban Renewal Plan.The two part incentive program attempts to strike a balance between welcoming all investors to the District and participating in projects are un likely “but for”TIF assistance. Applicants requesting $50,0000 or less in assistance would have their project reviewed under program criteria based only on the urban renewal program goal. Applicants requesting more than$50,000 in assistance would be required to submit detailed financial data on their project to show how TIF assistance would make a project feasible that might not be feasible without TIF assistance. Maximum awards will be caped based on demonstrated need and contingent on the availability of appropriated incentive funds. Some large projects may require the approval of mid-year budget amendments by the City Commission to proceed.

FEMA COO Meeting for Preliminary Flood Insurance Rate Maps
FEMA is in the process of remapping the regulatory flood plains for Bozeman Creek and its tributary streams for the City of Bozeman. A project milestone has been r

FEMA’ s floodplain map adoption process now calls for a CCO meeting (Consultation Coordination Officer) to be conducted with city decision makers as well as a separate public open house be held with the community.
The purpose of the CCO meeting and open house is to discuss the prelim FIRMs, address any questions raised, and inform the community officials and public on the remaining steps and timelines in the map adoption process. Staff from the FEMA Region VIII and the Montana DNRC will lead the CCO presentation and discussion with the Commission as a Special Presentation agenda item.
