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

The committee responsible for analyzing site selection data for the much-anticipated Montana Heritage Center has completed it's report. Time and serious consideration was allotted each location to determine which sites would be most beneficial to both the taxpayers who will fund the Center and the Capital City which will host it. Tourists, school children, educators, historians and local visitors will benefit from the cultural history, preserved documents and irreplaceable artifacts of the great state of Montana contained and displayed within its walls. Though late to make clear its interest in being considered for the new landmark site, Mark Runkle recently submitted support documentation to the committee demonstrating why the Crossroads Commercial neighborhood at Mountain View Meadows would be the best site for the Montana Heritage Center. Runkle sighted the advantages of options for the larger lot size at Mountain View Meadows to address the need for a long-term solution for future expansion. He also sighted the reduced cost inherent in selecting the Mountain View Meadows site which would be delivered with complete infrastructure including paved streets, curb and gutters, underground utilities, city sewer and water services and street lamps and parking. Runkle also pointed out the importance of maintaining the integrity of the area surrounding the site. "Just like in our residential neighborhoods, Covenants and Design Standards will protect the Montana Heritage Center from incompatible land use and in maintaining the kind of aesthetics that compliment a landmark building of this nature." Runkle also sighted that building across the street from the Blue Cross Blue Shield headquarters and facing the iconic Sleeping Giant is a real plus. "The new Montana Heritage Center would have the best views of the Sleeping Giant right out the front entry," said Runkle. " What an exceptional natural landmark to compliment the new landmark Montana Heritage Center."
