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!

Believe in Better: A Job Well Done

Hats off to the City of Helena for quickly addressing snow removal when streets turned white the first weekend in February. But the storm came as no surprise. Anyone in Montana can better predict six more weeks of winter than a wanna-be marmot in Gobbler’s Knob. In fact, it is fair to say only six more weeks would be a welcomed forecast! While the fluffy stuff brings cheers from those who love swooping down the slopes on skis, it can be a challenge to city street crews responsible for keeping kids safe traveling back and forth to school and essential workers on schedule. When Helena Mayor Wilmot Collins first ran for office, he canvassed voters about their number one issue: snow removal hit the top of the list. Since assuming office, Collins and fellow commission members have attacked snow removal head on, launching initiatives that greatly improved city snow removal services. Mark Runkle and his crew at Mountain View Meadows, which for years prior addressed snow removal throughout the development, praises David Knopke, Transportation Systems Director and Darren Pearce, Street Superintendent at the City for their quick attention to clearing streets and improving travel conditions for the more than 300 home owners and families in the MVM community. But that’s not all. Maintained by Helena Dept. of Parks and Recreation under the supervision of Parks Director Kristi Ponozzo and Parks Superintendent Craig Marr, the popular 2.5 mile paved “Fun & Fitness Trail” that weaves its way through the community was quickly restored to accessibility following the snow storm. For those who use the paved bike path daily for exercise, walking their dogs, non-vehicle transportation, connectivity and personal pleasure, this was a welcomed benefit. The support from the City has freed up time and resources for Runkle to focus on clearing alleys, private condo streets and drifted areas. The recent purchase of a skid- steer-mounted 8’ wide snow blower proved a great asset for Runkle and his crew to keep up with the snow. Many thanks to the city of Helena for a job well done and to Mark and his crew for doing their part to make life better for residents at Mountain View Meadows--even at ten below.
