Mountain View Meadows


It takes time to build a better community but it begins with believing in better. We believe you want more than just a house. You want a sense of place. You want to sit on your front porch and enjoy the flowers in your yard, the landscaped boulevards and the amazing mountain views. You want to live in a neighborhood where kids can safely walk down sidewalks to visit friends and family and play in neighborhood parks.

You enjoy an active lifestyle and want to walk your dog and run, hike or bike on paved trails that connect to business, shopping, schools and entertainment. You are community-minded and appreciate energy conservation and protecting land, wildlife and water resources.

And most of all, you value time to enjoy your home, your family and all that Montana offers.
That’s why we believe in building a better community – because you believe in better!

– Mark Runkle & Rebecca Ryland

When choosing where to build or purchase a new home, buyers sometimes overlook a major consideration: the value of city infrastructure. Cities spend millions of dollars engineering, installing, maintaining and updating municipal water and sewage treatment facilities. These community investments ensure residents that they will have the water they want when they need it and that contaminants in household sewage are removed to produce environmentally safe treated wastewater. Private developers also invest millions of dollars when developing within cities, working closely with city engineers and utility maintenance department staff to install water and sewer infrastructure that meets city standards. This relationship between private developers and municipal governments ensures safe and reliable services to those who purchase homes within city developments while protecting valuable natural resources for the benefit of the overall community. As the next new phase of development in Mountain View Meadows nears completion, city engineer, Ryan Leland and a host of city inspectors along with developer Mark Runkle, MVM construction foreman Kris Baker and Shawn Higley and Jeremy Fadness of WWC Engineering gathered on site in April for what is termed a "walk-through". During the walk-through, as is true during every phase of development, inspectors examined water system valves, fire hydrant installation, sanitary sewer lines, storm sewer lines, and manholes. Prior to the walk-through, water lines were pressure treated to 190 psi to make certain they wouldn't leak and were sanitized with chlorine, flushed and bacteria tested. Sewer lines were also pressure tested with air to assure that water wouldn't seep into them. Afterwards, a remote controlled robotic video camera was maneuvered through the sewer lines to confirm there were no "dips" where sewage could collect. It is often said "It takes a village" to raise children. It also takes a village of qualified professionals and responsible developers to maintain water and sewer infrastructure standards that ensure a better, healthier and more enjoyable life for residents now and for generations of people to come.
