Belgrade, Montana voters passed a 25-million dollar bond to expand Belgrade High School. The bond passed with a  59 to 41 percent margin. The money will be used to remodel and expand Belgrade High School. Belgrade, like Bozeman, has seen a major population increase in the past decade and will need to continue passing bonds like this one to keep up with the rapidly expanding region.Some parts of Belgrade High School were built in the 1960’s. School officials will focus on remodeling the culinary kitchen, updating science labs, art rooms, tech centers and increasing classroom spaces throughout the school. Belgrade will also add a new gym with the funds.Belgrade schools do not believe a second high school (an expansion Bozeman has been seriously considering) will be needed for at least 15 ...

Bozeman City Commissioners rejected the proposal by Bozeman area builders to lighten parkland requirements to make homes more affordable. They city remained open to the idea of lowering lot size requirements to increase inventory and lower prices of homes in Bozeman.Bozeman builders were asked by City Commissioners to come up with several proposals in mid March to lower the prices of homes in the area. Despite high permit requests, new construction has not alleviated rising home values. Builders pushed for less mandated parkland in new subdivisions—a request, they believed would help lower prices while keeping their jobs affordable and feasible. City code currently specifies that 0.3 acres be set aside as parkland for each dwelling unit in new subdivisions. Builders believe that not bei...

  Congratulations to the Belgrade Community Library for being named the best small library in America! The Belgrade Library competed against other libraries serving areas with less than 25,000 people and beat every single one. After being named the Montana Library of the year in 2011, the Belgrade Community Library decided to take on the nation as well—and won. In its application, the library described itself as an institution that has had to adapt to a fast shifting Belgrade. The library helped itself adapt to a growing Belgrade through its hard work with several programs designed to better serve its population. In 2008, the library hired a vista volunteer, who helped establish programs aimed at its underserved populations. The library also started a program that sent volunteers to lo...

  The Belgrade City / County Planning Board reapproved a 357 lot project this week—a project that had already been given the green light in 2006. The Ryan Glenn Estates project was once again approved, after the original project fell through during the recession. Glenn’s project went under after an Arkansas Bank that had funded the project had also folded. This subdivision is yet another recently approved development to increase home inventory and supply for the valley. Home values holding true, despite the increased inventory, reflect positively on the state of the market in Gallatin County. With the re-approval of the subdivision, Ken Williams, one of the current owners, can now develop the land as it had been intended 9 years ago. The project will be built in 7 phases and is located...

  The Belgrade City Council voted on and approved a resolution to raise the benchmark for city streets, improving the function of future roads in a growing town. From now on, any newly constructed or reconstructed roads will need more designations for pedestrians and bikers, while also adding more curbs, gutters and sidewalks. Any minor construction, such as chip sealing, will not need to meet the new requirements.   The official resolution does not designate specific numbers that need to be met i.e. number of gutters per block, but instead states that the necessary features need to be addressed by the city before approval. The city will review building proposals on a project by project basis to best determine the proper amenities construction teams would need to add. The city needs to...

  14 JACKSON!     It is no surprise that our winning home came from a neighborhood like lovely River Rock.

Market for Residential Real Estate in Belgrade, MT The previous graph indicates that the fourth quarter during the holiday season did not taper off as usual, but we actually sold a greater number than the previous quarter and have started to move some of those homes that had been stagnant on the market for awhile! This is great news for Belgrade, we are looking forward to carrying that momentum into the new year.

How long will it take to sell my Belgrade, MT home? In Realtors language, we call it the absorption rate.  We can analyze the sales data from the last 6 months in comparison to the number of homes that are still on the market and make an educated guess as to how long it may take homes in Belgrade Montana to sell.  The chart looks like this:   What does the chart tell us?  If you have a home that has a list price of under $200,000, you stand a very good chance of selling it in under two months since we have sold 64 homes in that price range in the previous six months and currently only have 20 available to sell.  If you have a home that is priced between $201,000 and $300,000, you are looking at approximately five months of marketing time. When we start to look at the luxury home market ...

  River Rock Sewer Fees River Rock Subdivision in Belgrade, Montana may be facing some additional costs for its’ residences.  When voters opted to reject the proposed bond issue to complete the State mandated repairs to the community owned sewer system, maybe they didn’t realize it was the least expensive solution to resolving the leaking lagoon issue that has plagued the subdivision for the last couple of years. There are 222 condominium units and 915 homes in the River Rock area that utilize the services of the subdivision for their water and sewer needs.  Each of these would have seen a rise of $236 per year for $100,000 of taxable value had the bond passed.  Now, the options are limited for funding the overhaul. The sewer rate fees could be raised substantially to cover the costs, a...

River Rock Subdivision in Belgrade Montana is set apart and defined by the local organizations that open their doors to the public.  For several years Connect Church has hosted a 4th of July party for members of the church as well as the community.  They gave away a free TV in a raffle, made all you can eat burgers and hot dogs, cotton candy, popcorn, inflatable jumper for the kids, and a spectacular fireworks show.  This event is something that members of the small tight knit community look forward to each year.   Its small gestures like theses that make this neighborhood so special.   More River Rock Info

MDT has a resurfacing project on Amsterdam Road that will be constructed this summer. The work will include changing the current two-way left-turn lane to a left-turn lane dedicated to traffic turning left from Amsterdam Road onto Jackrabbit Lane. If all works well, this change could reduce the length of the backed-up traffic by as much as 50%.   The second project, which we hope will be constructed in 2011, will install a signal at the intersection of Amsterdam Road and the Interstate 90 eastbound off ramp. The project will also include the construction of a right-turn lane on Jackrabbit for traffic turning west onto Amsterdam Road. The signal will help traffic flow from the off ramp but may not do much for the congestion on Amsterdam Road. The right-turn lane will on Jackrabbit should...
