This year’s Gallatin County Fair saw a large attendance spike compared to last year. The fair saw a 64 percent increase in tickets sold compared to 2013. Such a large percentage increase could be influenced by a variety of factors. Weather, obviously, can drastically affect the crowd turnout, as well as new exciting acts coming to town with the fair. But these factors cannot account for such a large increase. Perhaps the growth of Bozeman has increased the population the fair can draw from. Other events have also seen an increase in popularity in the last few years, including Sweet Pea and Music on Main. Bozemanites continue to show great pride in their local culture and events, and they seem to come to community-building events in stronger numbers every year.

Developers in Bozeman are looking to renovate the Cannery District, an industrial sector to the Northeast of town. Given its name from the old pea cannery that did business there in the early 1900’s, the district had been used almost solely for industrial use. Now, the developers of the area are looking to create a new hub of commercial activity. Plans include renovating the older buildings while also constructing 7 new buildings. Owners will be looking to strip the old buildings down to the bone, in order to get them back to their roots. They will also make the buildings more energy efficient, without losing the historical significance of the district. By project’s finish, the district should have 15 buildings in total that would cost roughly 15 million dollars. Tenants have already been secured for many of the new buildings. Even now, coffee shops, breweries and restaurants have already moved into the district.
The city of Bozeman, in conjunction with Gallatin County, began construction on a new trail from North Rouse to Seventh Avenue. The city expects the project to cost $264,596 dollars and should be finished in the next few weeks. Ideally, the trail will greatly increase the safety of bikers and pedestrians in Northern Bozeman. As most trails run north to south, the east-west running trail should markedly improve transportation ease in the city. In addition to the trail on Rouse, the city has recently added trails along Norris Rd. as well as from Cougar Dr. and Cottonwood Rd. south of town. Reliable, safe trails can be a lifesaver for young families while keeping bikers off of busy main roads. Bozemanites can now look forward to relaxing evening walks or morning runs with more comfort and confidence.
