More Housing Coming to Both Bozeman and Belgrade
The longtime trailer park on North Willson Avenue may soon be transformed into a series of duplexes. Santa Clarita-based company, William Homes LLC, has filed plans to replace the trailers with 16 three-story duplexes, each designed to include 3 bedrooms and an apartment above the garage for future owners to rent out if they choose— all contained within 1,800 square feet.
William Homes, LLC has a portfolio that encompasses many different types of projects, ranging from $159,000 to $1,000,000, which includes everything from townhomes to gated luxury communities.
Although the details about price range and the transition process haven’t yet been announced, construction could start as early as this summer if the city approves the project.
Plans for a 595-lot subdivision were discussed on Monday with the Belgrade City Council. The future proposed location for this new development sits on 153-acres of the former Prescott Ranch on Belgrade’s west side.
Some board members expressed concerns over non-existent streets that are currently reflected in the plans. The board wants all streets to connect through the subdivision as they are concerned with traffic pileups and proper traffic distribution, both of which are current problems in Belgrade. Another point of concern amongst the board were park sizes- the current plan reflects 5 parks spread out across the subdivision, each averaging 3 acres in size. The board suggested reducing this to either one or two larger parks.
Additionally, developers want to change the zoning from R-2 to R-3 in order to boost density and allow for multi-family housing. All input gathered at Monday’s meeting will be taken into account before developers submit a formal proposal to the city.
