Valley View Neighbors Against New Development

Posted: Updated:
GREAT FALLS - A Great Falls community is in uproar because of a possible housing development project in their neighborhood.

Dennis Castle and his wife moved into their home in Valley View in 1969. They raised their children and grandchildren at their home and watched them play at the park across the street. Now 45 years later, that could all change.

Earlier this month, Castle received a letter from NeighborWorks Great Falls informing him that they want to build between 80-95 lots. Some of those lots would remove the park on 10th St. NW.

"I lost a night of sleep over it because it upset me no end," Castle said.

And it's not just the Castle family that disagrees with this new development, but according to Castle, 90% of the Valley View community. So far Castle and his neighbors collected roughly 134 signatures.

Residents say it's not just about the park. By adding so many homes Castle believes it will cause plumbing problems, traffic issues, and increase school capacity .

NeighborWorks Great Falls is a non-profit organization that builds neighborhoods for primarily low to moderate income families.

Neighborhood Council #3 is holding an emergency meeting Thursday night at 7 p.m. at Corpus Christi Catholic Church (410 2nd Ave. NE) to discuss the proposal.
