Playground equipment and park facilities remain open for public use. PLEASE NOTE: Play equipment and touch surfaces are NOT disinfected regularly. Please use these facilities responsibly and continue to practice social distancing, frequent washing of hands and use of face masks if possible.
Social distancing, face coverings and sanitizing protocols are vital. We encourage all to maintain regular handwashing with soap and water, keeping hands away from face, and cleaning communally touched surfaces such as keyboards, doorknobs, light switches, phones, etc. because these are the best defense against getting viruses. The City of Belgrade will continue working closely with Gallatin County Emergency Services and the Gallatin County Health Department as we consider local needs in the coming weeks. Gallatin County Health has directed that we can get the most up-to-date information by visiting the Montana Department of Public Health and Human Service's (DPPHS). They have a dedicated page for updates on the Novel Coronavirus.
The Triangle Community Plan including Belgrade, Bozeman and Gallating County was developed by the Planning Coordination Committee (PCC) in cooperation with community partners, local government departments and public input to establish policies in the Triangle to achieve the vision of: Regional coordination creates and maintains a coherent land use pattern that supports the needs of existing and future citizens and the desire to protect community character and amenities. Cooperation between jurisdictions supports development patterns that do not compromise the ability of municipalities to grow in the future or expand necessary infrastructure.
Belgrade's Animal Control Ordinance requires all dogs over the age of (6) six months to be licensed by the City of Belgrade. Belgrade City Ordinance #4-1-5 allows for no more than 2 dogs per building or lot within Belgrade city limits.

Gallatin County Emergency Management has started an education campaign encouraging our citizens to register with our new Community Notification System. Overview information on this new Community Notification System is now available.
This new system is a large step forward in the ability to alert our communities during emergencies, and the more people who register the more powerful it becomes.
