City commission to address affordable housing in Monday meeting

Posted: Updated:

BOZEMAN - Bozeman is looking to update its affordable housing plan during Monday’s City Commission meeting.

Affordable Housing Program Manager Matthew Madsen and Director of Community Development Marty Matsen have been working on an assessment plan as well as an action plan to address issues surrounding affordable housing in Bozeman.

“I think it is a community conversation that needs to happen,” said Matsen.

He said the city has done some great work with companies like HRDC and Habitat for Humanity but there is still more work to be done.

Some of the goals listed in the plan include: developing workforce housing, creating affordable housing for different home types, and releasing an online survey for citizens to address concerns with local housing.

“I think the discussion is always about are we doing enough, is that the target we are trying to hit, so one of the things we will be talking about as we get in front of the commission is the need to update our needs assessment that was done a few years ago and then follow that with an action plan,” said Matsen.

If the assessment plan is approved, the city will then work on making a 4-year plan for the city.
