Preserving Recreation, Parks and Trails in Gallatin County

Dates: October 8, 2021

Meets: F from 12 N to 1:30 PM

Location: Online Presentation

Registration Fee: $0.00

People are moving to Gallatin County and Bozeman for the many amenities the area has to offer, especially recreation opportunities. How can these amenities be preserved?

The Triangle area of Gallatin County, namely the area between Bozeman, Four Corners, and
Belgrade, is experiencing change as a direct result of significant population growth. Gallatin County, the City of Belgrade, and the City of Bozeman all play a role in the area's development. In 2016, these three jurisdictions created the Planning Coordination Committee (PCC) to focus on issues and opportunities within the Triangle.

The Gallatin Valley Land Trust (GVLT) also plays an important role in the development of this area, emphasizing planning and expanding the trail network. The Triangle Trails Plan was made available for public comment this year and represents an important step forward. Chet Work, executive director of GVLT, will discuss the status of the plan and the next steps. In addition, Work will also discuss trail access through Pete's Hill. This issue has been in the news, and GVLT is taking the lead in purchasing land to keep the trails intact.

Garrett McAllister, senior planner with Gallatin County, and Addi Jadin, Parks and Recreation Manager for the City of Bozeman, will also participate on the panel to describe local government initiatives to preserve and enhance parks, recreation, and trails.

Participants must register in advance and no later than 11:00 a.m. on Friday, October 8. Upon registration confirmation, participants will receive an email with the Zoom link and instructions to join the program.

Friday Forum offers presentations and lively discussions on timely topics. Friday Forum is free and open to the public.

Fee:   $0.00
