It seems like every week we hear about a new business, new housing development, new dog park, etc. going up in or around Bozeman. Some of the buildings I can see a need for, and some I just don't know what all the hype is about. Or why we would even need such a thing.

A new development could be breaking ground very soon and it's not a small building.

Just north of Bozeman there are plans to add an 8500 sq. foot building that will host brand new tennis courts. I mean this seems like a nice addition to have, especially for winter when we sometimes don't have the warmest weather and having some indoor activity options sounds nice.

Supposedly this building will not disrupt traffic or the surrounding homes, and they are probably right considering the 8500 sq. foot building, will only be able to accommodate 4-8 people at one time. I mean...if you are going to build a tennis court, I would think you would just go all out and make it suitable for more than a few tennis players. Make it so  there are indoor basketball courts, perhaps an indoor walking track, maybe a racquetball area, but no.


I just think it's a bit ridiculous to use our ag land for essentially 8 people. Don't get me wrong, we all know Bozeman is moving north, and considering I live on that side of town I would like to see a little more convenience, but an 8500 sq. foot tennis court? I can think of 10 other things I would like to see.

But then again...someone had to sell that land right?
