GVLT: New Trails Vision Means New Trails in New Neighborhoods

     Gallatin Valley Land Trust’s executive director, Chet Work, wrote an op-ed in the Bozeman Daily Chronicle in which he and GVLT discuss exporting the success of “Main Street to the Mountains” to an informal “Main Street  to our neighborhoods, schools and businesses.”

     Chet, who recently arrived at GVLT with more than 20 years of land trust experience, wrote that Main Street to the Mountains is a great community success, and that GVLT and the community are justifiably proud of that achievement.

     GVLT, Bozeman Parks and Recreation, and Gallatin County would like to duplicate that success with a strong connector trail network throughout the county, including business and residential areas.

     From the op-ed: We envision a 12-mile “East to West” greenway that stretches past the new Gallatin High School and affordable housing developments like Larkspur Commons, through new neighborhoods like Flanders Mill Subdivision and around public parks like Story Mill Community Park and the Gallatin County Regional Park, along with growing centers of commerce like Midtown and the Cannery District.
