The Bozeman Neighborhood Conservation Overlay District (NCOD) is a overlay district created in 1991. Its purpose is to stimulate the restoration and rehabilitation of structures, and all other elements contributing to the character and fabric of established residential neighborhoods and commercial or industrial areas.
Historic Preservation is an established priority of city planning in Bozeman. Preservation goes beyond saving old buildings, it creates a unique sense of place, a sense of community and bridges the gap between the past and our future. Preservation is about recognizing and celebrating what Bozeman values and ensuring it can be enjoyed by future generations.
An overlay district is an additional district applied over one or more already established Bozeman Zoning Districts. An overlay establishes additional or stricter standards and criteria in addition to those underlying zoning districts. Communities have used overlay districts to focus the conservation of features such as historic districts, wetlands, waterfront development, etc. An overlay can be applied to one or several zone districts.
The Bozeman Neighborhood Conservation Overlay District contains 8 of Bozeman’s National Register Historic Districts and all 45 Individually Listed Properties on the National Register of Historic Places.
