Bozeman is a rapidly growing city with a high quality of life in part due to the easy access to the outdoors, burgeoning tech industry, and cultural experiences it offers. Bozeman intends to maintain this high quality of life as it grows in part by using its land efficiently. The land is a finite resource and its use can either produce high enough property tax revenues and fees to support residents’ needs or drain city funds for infrastructure upkeep. In this story map, Urban3 visualizes property values in 3D to make relative comparisons between downtown with those throughout the community. This analysis clearly shows that downtown generates the most tax value and revenue productivity in Bozeman and Gallatin County. Downtown Bozeman yields 6 times the tax revenue per acre compared to the rest of the City relative to their sizes. Downtown yields 200 times the tax revenue per acre compared to the rest of Gallatin County relative to their sizes.View Resource
