Final Draft of Gallatin County Growth Policy Now Available

Gallatin County Planning Department


For immediate release: September 1, 2021

The Gallatin County Planning Department is excited to announce the final draft of the Gallatin County Growth Policy. More information on the project and the full document can be found at

The County Growth Policy is the document that guides growth, development, and land use patterns across the County. The document vision is centered around three major themes heard during public outreach: Open Space, Heritage, and Opportunity. The document sets goals and policies, with an eye toward clarity and specificity. The update is comprehensive, reflecting the County’s status as the fastest growing in the state with updated community background information, additional supporting data, and a forward-looking implementation plan.

The adoption of the plan by the Gallatin County Commission is scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 21 at the commission’s weekly public meeting. The meeting is held in the Community Room of the Gallatin County Courthouse, 311 W. Main St. in Bozeman. Virtual attendance options are also available. Members of the public are encouraged to attend in person or virtually. The full agenda and attendance options will be posted at this link the week prior to the meeting.
