Bozeman Main Street Nationally Recognized in the Top Ten

 

  

The 2012 American Planning Association has determined Bozeman’s nine blocks of Main Street is one of the top 10 streets in America. The clever uses of historical buildings, diversity of businesses, and the economic and cultural prosperity found within Bozeman as a whole all were taken into account when the street was chosen.

“Main Street has been a leader in preservation planning practices since the mid-1980s,” said Mayor Sean Becker.The Great Streets program is part of Great Places in America, an APA program that began in 2007 and recognizes areas shaped by “deliberate planning,” the release stated.

Kitsch, neo-gothic, and art deco styles can be seen in a stroll downtown here in Bozeman. Three of the four properties that were destroyed in the 2009 gas leak explosion have been rebuilt and reopened. This is a testament to the resiliency and determination to grow and prosper as a community.

The nine other streets recognized were in Key West, Fla.; Kansas City; Saratoga Springs, N.Y.; New York City; Kingston, N.Y.; Beachwood, Cleveland and Shaker Heights, Ohio; Pittsburgh; Charleston, S.C.; and Knoxville, Tenn.
