Some highlights that we are tracking at the City Commission this Monday June 27th 5:30 pm, City Hall Bozeman | Montana
Cottage Housing | The Birth of the Tiny Home in Bozeman?
“The City has been working on the issues of infill development and affordable housing for many years. Recently, the City adopted new regulations for affordable housing. As part of that process, the City Commission directed the creation of an option for innovative housing. The innovative housing option is to encourage the creation of affordable housing within developments. The increased intensity of use and flexibility can create challenges due to tight conditions. Attention to detail during the design and execution of a cottage housing development is essential. Cottage housing requires site innovation. The allowed small scale and small lot sizes provide a style of housing not found in standard subdivision design. The design standards address details not normally seen during a subdivision review. Not all sites are able to successfully meet cottage housing standards. Provision of infrastructure is a design constraint.”
Lamme Street ZMA | Increase in Density to R-5 Zoning
Lamme Street Zone Map Amendment (ZMA) requesting amendment of the City Zoning Map for 5.1 acres (including streets and alleys) from R-4 (High-Density Residential) district to R-5 (Residential Mixed-Use High Density) district. The Bozeman Code Update is a City-wide effort to generally revise and update the City’s development code. In association with the phase one code amendments certain zoning changes were necessary. The Lamme Street ZMA is a part of the Midtown ZMA and text amendments that were finally adopted on April 25, 2016, and became effective on June 8, 2016, after considerable public input. However, based on a public comment the Commission removed three areas within the Midtown ZMA area from the revised and adopted zoning map. All areas removed from the revised zoning map were proposed to be changed to R-5.
Law & Justice Project | Project Update
As designed, the Project consists of two separate buildings constructed on the L&J campus; a Courts building and a law enforcement building (see attached site plan). The total estimated square footage for both buildings is 181,658.
Ownership Structure | If all questions are approved by voters, the City and County would jointly own the Project as condominiums, which is the form of property ownership chosen by the County and City for the joint 911 Center/Fire Station 3 property. Under this form of ownership, each party would own their condominium unit (the areas of the buildings exclusively occupied by that party), plus an undivided property interest in the common elements, expressed as a percentage. It is anticipated the City and County would each have a 50% voting interest in the condominium’s common elements. The condominium declaration will include a dispute resolution mechanism to resolve any deadlocks.
