If the residents who signed the abandonment petition have their way, a gate would be installed at this location and the roads behind would be closed to the public.

Another gate?

A petition to abandon portions of Streamside Way and Great Horn Road made its way to the Gallatin County Commission in late March and a viewing committee comprised of Gallatin County Commissioner Don Seifert and Charlotte Mills with the county clerk and recorder’s office came to Big Sky recently to take a look at the roads.

Road to nowhere

Show Place in Belgrade is a dead-end court lined with small apartment buildings and filled with cars. For someone on drugs who allegedly stole a vehicle in Billings and started to run out of gas in Belgrade, this quiet residential street looked like it held opportunity. 

NorthWestern Energy hasn’t made a decision about the location and type of substation it will build, but the company sees a lot of upside in a low-profile traditional substation, pictured here in a rendering of the Midway site.

Substation evaluation

Looking to flip the breaker on the public’s perception of plans for a new mid-mountain substation, NorthWestern Energy invited Big Sky residents to the Warren Miller Performing Arts Center on April 11 for a presentation by company representatives, an engineer working on the project and a professional facilitator from Montana State University.

Cheers to correcting record

After stopping and warning a driver on Gallatin Road for making a questionable pass near Portal Creek, a deputy went back to the scene and determined the man had actually made a legal pass. The deputy called him back and apologized for pulling him over.

WHERE ARE THEY NOW?

Big Sky native Kristi Borge and her husband Erik were living in Northeast Bozeman when they started wondering if it might be a good idea to sell their house and buy a ski area. 

Maverick Mountain was on the market, so the couple drove over on a spring day after the area’s lone lift stopped spinning for the season.
