The new high school in Bozeman is under full construction with estimated completion fall 2020. Boundary lines were voted on and finalized this week after much discussion. At this point, the surrounding neighborhoods in the area will go to the new high school (boundaries change, always verify with the Bozeman School District). Here are the subdivisions that border the new high school.
One of the newer subdivisions in Bozeman, Flanders Mill is on the east side of the new high school between Durtson, Baxter, Ferguson and Flanders Mill Road. This park like neighborhood is 137-acres and when all the phases are complete it will be made up of 272-single family homes and 195 multi-family. There are 36-acres dedicated to parklands, common space, streams, ponds, trails, playgrounds and picnic areas. If you’ve driven by Flanders Mill you can see how nice this common space is turning out.
The homes are architecturally designed and custom built. There is an HOA, covenants and homeowner dues. The main streets in the neighborhood will have landscaped medians and those along with the secondary streets will feature roundabouts to help with both safety and traffic flow. This will be helpful with students making their way to the new high school.
To the north of the new high school, across the street from Baxter Lane is Baxter Meadows and Baxter Meadows West. Baxter Meadows is made up of single and multi-family homes on nice size lots, while Baxter Meadows West is only single-family homes. Throughout these subdivisions, there are trails, playgrounds and beautiful Bridger views. Chief Joseph Middle School adjoins the neighborhood along with a few elementary schools within close proximity. With all the schools nearby, you’ll find lots of families in these neighborhoods.
There is an HOA, covenants and dues plus design, fence and landscaping guidelines to ensure cohesive aesthetics throughout the neighborhood. Along with being close to the new high school, these subdivisions are right by the 100-Acre Regional Park, the Anderson Dog, plus the retail and dining options off of 19th Avenue.
A few blocks away, but still very close to the new high school is Oak Springs. This subdivision is bordered by Ferguson, Durston and Oak Street. Directly north of this subdivision is the 100-Acre Regional park. There is also a great neighborhood park, open space, playground and trails. Oak Springs is made up of both single family and multi-family homes. Having been around slightly longer than some of the other subdivisions featured here gives the feeling of a more established neighborhood. There is an HOA, covenants and homeowner dues.
Valley West will be to the south of the new high school. Ferguson Avenue is the main road leading to the subdivision with quick access to Huffine Lane and Durston Road. Two elementary schools are within minutes of the neighborhood.
The motto for this northwest Bozeman subdivision is “Small Town Charm. Big Sky Living.” Valley West features an array of housing options and architectural styles. Capturing the true feel of historic Bozeman neighborhoods with front porches, tree-lined streets, and alley entrances. Valley West is expected to have 1,630 living units ranging from condominiums, townhomes, duplexes and single-family homes when all is said and done.
This welcoming subdivision incorporates lakes, streams, open acreage and four miles of walking and bike trails throughout the subdivision. There are beautiful covered bridges and a pavilion on the lake, perfect for family gatherings. There is a children’s playground next to one of the natural streams. It is one of the nicest playgrounds and parks for a neighborhood.
Valley West has an active homeowners association with HOA dues. In order to create neighborhoods that reflect the character of the subdivision, there are architectural regulations. They allow for a broad range of design while also ensuring that the homes in the subdivision have a comprehensive composition.
A couple streets north and slightly west of the new high school is Laurel Glen Subdivision. This neighborhood offers both single family and multi-family residences. Sitting directly off of Durston Road, Laurel Glen offers a rural feel within minutes of town. There are spectacular views of the mountains as well as the park and green space in the subdivision. Along with being close to several schools, Laurel Glen is also near the Brakken Soccer fields.
