Bozeman Leaders Looking Long-Term For City's Goals

Posted: Updated:
BOZEMAN -

Bozeman city leaders are working to develop a game plan for the next year, but this year they are taking a different approach.

In the proposed plan, officials want city commissioners to look at three areas when making policies over the next several years because they believe Bozeman will continue to grow.

They say economic development is their number one priority, especially in downtown.

They also want to improve the city's infrastructure and become a more efficient government.

City Manager Chris Kukulski said it is time to look at the bigger picture.

"What do we need to do as an organization, to make sure people are as excited about moving here when Bozeman is the twice the size it is today, as they are today," said Kukulski.

Kukulski will outline his goals for Bozeman in detail to the city commission at its meeting on Monday.

That meeting will start two hours earlier, at 4 p.m. at city hall.

The commissioners aren't expected formally adopt the plan on Monday.
