Oregon Design Conference 2022 is a 3-day hybrid event hosted by AIA Oregon
Christine Mondor FAIA will co-present on June 3, 2:40pm-3:40pm
Session 7 – Sustainable Design & Housing Equity for Bozeman’s Missing Middle
Behind the Bridger View Neighborhood project is a compelling story that touches on all objectives of the conference (Resilience, Housing, Transportation, Equity, and Replicability). Bridger View is a compact neighborhood of 62 sustainably built homes that is adjacent to Bozeman’s Story Mill Community Park. It sits on 8 acres with shared open spaces and pedestrian connections to the park and local trail systems. Half of the homes at Bridger View will be held in the Headwaters Community Housing Trust, providing permanent home ownership opportunities for middle-income Bozeman residents. This unique neighborhood addresses housing inequity, creates a connected and compact neighborhood, and promotes sustainable building practices. While many projects strive to address environmental concerns, housing inequity, or challenge the traditional development practices, Bridger View achieves all three, providing solutions to systemic issues and serving as a model for future development.
