“Critical to the enduring vitality of Downtown Bozeman is housing, because people who live Downtown tend to shop Downtown. Fortunately, many of Bozeman’s Main Street commercial buildings have apartments on upper levels…Of equal importance are the large residential neighborhoods, which generally begin two to three blocks north and south of Main Street and extend for at least a mile on either side of the thoroughfare. Maintaining this housing stock and, when possible, creating more opportunities for Downtown residential development through infill and other means should, in the interest of preserving the vitality of the Downtown area, be strongly encouraged as long as the historic fabric of the Downtown area is not sacrificed in the process.? Bozeman 2020 Community Plan, Section 4.7. (emphasis added).
