Bozeman Health Subarea Plan

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The Bozeman Health land east of Highland Boulevard is one of the largest undeveloped properties in the City of Bozeman. With the continued evolution and growth of the community, it is reasonable to assume that some of this land will be developed in the future.

The purpose of the Bozeman Health Subarea Plan is to better guide future development utilizing the goals established in the 2020 Community Plan, which is also referred to as the City Growth Policy.

Bozeman Health and Sanderson Stewart are approaching this process with a wide variety of community needs in mind. We are looking for ‘win-win’ opportunities to advance Bozeman Health’s mission while balancing the community and neighborhood priorities established in the 2020 Community Plan.

This website will provide and archive up-to-date information about the planning process and provide a variety of ways for the public to engage by sharing thoughts and ideas.

    Over the past two months, the planning team has synthesized the public input received during this summer’s engagement efforts and continued to work with Bozeman Health executives to further develop the plan. The collective outcome is a framework of improvements and amenities that establish the structure for potential future neighborhoods. The open house events will provide graphic renderings of the neighborhood framework and seek feedback on the proposed elements.

    The open houses will include stations for community members to learn more about the framework elements and ask questions of the planning team.

    There is no formal presentation, so please join us during any point of this two-hour event.

  • Bozeman Health to Update Subarea Plan at City of Bozeman Request

    Corporate news | Friday, May 6, 2022

    Contact: Lauren Brendel, M.S.

    In 1956, leaders of the health system purchased land on Highland Blvd., which encompasses Hillcrest Senior Living, the Deaconess Hospital campus, and the agricultural fields and ranchland bordered by Highland, Kagy, and Bozeman Trail Road, that is commonly referred to as Highland Glen. In 2006 Bozeman Health created a subarea plan to supplement the City’s Community Plan to guide future uses of the undeveloped Highland Glen area.

    In late 2020, the Bozeman City Commission adopted the Bozeman Community Plan. The Community Plan is the overarching vision guiding the City’s evolution over the next ten years - it outlines goals and objectives regarding current and future land uses, transportation and mobility, social and cultural identity, public safety and the environment, and economic development.

    The City of Bozeman requested that Bozeman Health update their subarea plan as part of the community plan process. A subarea plan applies the goals and objectives established in the Community Plan to a smaller area, district, or neighborhood—it is a high-level overview of potential future land uses. Bozeman Health currently has no plans to develop the land in Highland Glen. Any future development would require adherence to the City’s Subdivision, Master Site Plan, and Site Plan processes.

    Bozeman Health has engaged Sanderson Stewart, a local community design and planning company, to lead a new subarea planning process, which will include robust public engagement. Bozeman Health and Sanderson Stewart are conducting a series of opportunities for community involvement over the next six months. The new subarea plan will be submitted to the City early in 2023, followed by public hearings with the Planning Board and City Commission prior to potential adoption.

    Open houses will be hosted at Bozeman Health Deaconess Hospital from June through October.
