Bozeman Wanting To Protect Historic Properties From Neglect

Posted: Updated:
BOZEMAN -

The City of Bozeman is working to make sure historic buildings neglected by property owners don't get torn down.

City commissioners and the Director of Planning and Community Development have been working on a new demolition by neglect ordinance for about a year.

If passed, the ordinance would make sure historic properties and buildings don't get demolished if the owners can't afford to maintain them.

City officials said they hope to get the community involved in helping preserve historic buildings.

"Engaging the community in education, being able to partner with not-for-profits, for instance if you can't economically afford to maintain say your house and it fits in a historic district," said Wendy Thomas, Planning and Community Development Director.

Thomas will present an updated ordinance to the city commissioners during their meeting Monday, March 3.
