Business Reacts to Valley View Development

Posted: Updated:
GREAT FALLS -

A proposed development in Great Falls has created some controversy. Earlier this month NeighborWorks Great Falls proposed a project that could add up to 95 lots for low to moderate income families to build homes on.

Katy Duncan is the President of Happy Tails Lodge and has provided pet care services since 2002. When Katy heard that a new development could move in her backyard she became concerned. Right now, Valleyview Park serves as a buffer between her business and residential homes.

"My concern is you know someone moves up against an airport and enough of them move up against the airport and they complain about the airport. They knew about it when they moved in. Then the airport has to move. I don't' want to be that airport. I don't want them to decided I'm too noisy I need to move or I need to close," Duncan said.

NeighborWorks Great Falls is a housing and community development organization. Since they opened in 1984 , they've built built more than 300 homes and helped over 2,000 people become home owners. Executive Director Sheila Rice said the new homes would have a 25-foot buffer zone between the commercial areas including Happy Tails Lodge.

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.
