Bozeman North 7th Ave Urban Renewal Board
  • Making Connections



    The Design and Connectivity Plan for the N. 7th Avenue Corridor envisions "gateway" type improvements for key intersections to define and enhance the character of N. 7th Avenue.

  • Improving Landscapes



    New light fixtures are proposed for the corridor to enhance its character and define it as a destination for Bozeman area residents and visitors.

  • Building Communities



    Modest intersection improvements delineate areas of refuge for pedestrians and contribute to an enhanced aesthetic experience.

  • Recent Improvements



    Sidewalk and landscaping improvements within the corridor are ongoing. This sitting wall and enhanced pedestrian area at the northwest corner of Oak Street and N. 7th Avenue gives the community its first glance of the improvements the Board hopes to implement throughout the corridor.

About Bozeman’s North 7th Avenue Urban Renewal District

In November 2006, the City of Bozeman designated a Tax Increment Finance (TIF) District, under which incremental increases in taxes due to redevelopment are accumulated in a TIF fund. The expenditure of this fund is guided by the N. 7th Avenue Design and Connectivity Plan (District Plan) and the Blight Report adopted by the Bozeman City Commission in 2005.This Plan is the city’s response to remedy the conditions of blight found in the August 2005 Blight Report through thoughtful redevelopment of the Corridor. A basic goal is to have an active and exciting corridor that is attractive with a distinct character. A strategy for achieving this goal is to improve the experience for the user by creating safe attractive walkways, streets and by providing buildings and landscaping that are of interest to users and passersby.
