Legislative Zoning Change Prompts Bozeman To Put Affordable Housing on November Ballot

The City of Bozeman is asking property owners to help fund the construction of new affordable houses in the area.

In July, city officials added an affordable housing levy to the November ballot. Bozeman Deputy Mayor Terry Cunningham says introducing the levy is motivated by a legislative decision to ban inclusionary zoning.

“We’re going to have to be more creative because a tool has been taken out of our toolbox,” Cunningham says.
