Residents Show Up Against Student Housing Zoning

BOZEMAN -

About 150 people were at Tuesday night's Bozeman City Zoning Committee, with most people coming to voice their opinion on a proposed student housing project.

Developers want the land south of Opportunity Way and east of 11th Avenue to be re-zoned from low-density or single family housing to high-density residential housing.

Developers are proposing Campus Crest, a 12 apartment building student housing complex.

With the development, Arnold Street and 11th Avenue would be extended.

Residents said they are concerned because the zoning change would increase traffic and they are worried about the safety of children who will be walking to and from Morning Star Elementary School.

"It is adjacent to an elementary school," said Allison Harmon. "This is not the kind of change we want to see in this neighbor. I'm concerned about safety mostly."

Before Tuesday's meeting, zoning commissioners received 118 written public comments on this project.

Another project discussed in tonight's meeting had no public comments when the meeting started.

The vote will go before the city commissioners at their meeting on February 24.
