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

Believe in Better: Trees!

Downtown Helena is beautiful this time of year! Enjoy a walk down Broadway and take in the cool, fresh air made possible in part by thoughtful city planning decades ago. It’s all about the trees. Trees provide many benefits to us, every day. They offer cooling shade, block cold winter winds, attract birds and wildlife, purify our air, prevent soil erosion, clean our water, and add grace and beauty to our homes and communities. But trees take a long time to grow. That’s where the vision of city planners kicks in. The city oversees the planting of trees in street rights-of-way, public parks and other city owned properties with Helena’s Urban Forest Division responsible for the care of over 10,000 trees. When it comes to boulevard trees, Helena City Arborist Chris Daly once said, “if there is room, plant a tree.” Developers also play a key role. As the largest developer in the City of Helena, Mountain View Meadows developer Mark Runkle recognizes the value of trees to both the homeowners and the greater community. Covenants and Design Standards stress the need for trees not only in boulevards but also in carriage lane alleys and within condo areas and private pocket parks. In the past 6 weeks alone, nearly 75 trees have been planted in and around one group of six condo buildings. “We see it as our responsibility to create not only a beautiful community to make the city proud, but also to prepare for the future to ensure a quality of life for our residents,” said Runkle. “Trees play an essential role in that goal.” Runkle gives tons of credit to homeowners who also see the role trees play in both property values and quality of life. “As we continue to grow, new buyers will join our nearly 400 current residents in planting new trees,” said Runkle. “That’s quite a commitment to the future! We can’t thank our homeowners enough for sharing in our vision to build a better community.”
