City of Bozeman will host a community event at 6:00 PM on Thursday, September 10 to gather feedback from the community and introduce the Unified Development Code Update project.

“Every citizen and person who does business in the City of Bozeman has a stake in the outcome of this process. The Unified Development Code rewrite process will challenge  decades-old exclusionary zoning and planning codes that are often internally contradictory." Mayor Krauss continues, "The current UDC often conflicts with the Community Plan, the Downtown Plan, and other more recently adopted community plans and goals for in-fill, density, affordable housing and mixed use development.”

The Code sets standards for parking, housing density, open space, landscaping, land use, building design, and much more.  In addition, the development code pulls together the City’s transportation, parks and open space, infrastructure plans, to name a few.  In other words, it’s important.
