Park County Housing Coalition and Park County Housing Action Plan

In 2020 HRDC and Park County Community Foundation (PCCF) partnered to bring together local stakeholders to create the Park County Housing Coalition.

● Relaunching the Park County Housing Coalition (May 2020)
● Park County Rental Opportunities (June 2020)
● Park County Home Ownership Opportunities (July 2020)
● Housing Insecurity in Park County (August 2020)
● Assessments and Strategies (September 2020)
● Next Steps and Development of the Housing Action Plan (October 2020)

Building on the Housing Coalition’s momentum, a dedicated group of eleven were selected through a competitive application process to represent the Park County Housing Working Group (HWG). Guided by community input through the Housing Coalition and Housing Working Group a Draft housing action plan is available for community review. Please check back shortly for a schedule of engagement events co-hosted with community partners including a virtual Wednesday lunchtime series with Park County Environmental Council on November 17 (recording below), December 1 on Community Land Trusts (registration link), and December 8 on Short Term Rentals (registration link) as well as TBA events with the Livingston Area Chamber of Commerce and community partners Gardiner (save the date 6 pm January 18th).

Brooke Poole

Public Sector

Since 2015, Brooke has been working with Allergan Aesthetics, Body Contouring. In 2018, Brooke began her role as Senior Manager of Training. Brooke graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science in Commercial Photography from Appalachian State University in 2011.

Brooke began her role on our Board in 2019. However, she feels it’s more fitting to say that she gets to serve on our Board. For Brooke, an evening at our Fork & Spoon was her first glance into our organization’s powerful work. As Brooke states, joining the Board has only expanded her appreciation for the caliber of people leading our mission and the impact of our vast ecosystem of services. While metrics alone are impressive, Brooke likes to visualize each number as an individual example of support – an extension of a helping hand, a moment of relief – given to one of our neighbors. She is grateful for the opportunity to participate in shaping HRDC’s future.

Although Brooke spends most of her volunteer time with HRDC, she was fortunate enough to build with Habitat for Humanity over the course of the summer in 2020. Her favorite place to spend time is anywhere under the Big Sky, although Hyalite may be her favorite place on Earth.

Ron Brey

Public Sector

Ron served as Bozeman’s Assistant City Manager from 1990 to 2008. After retiring, Ron joined our Board in 2011. Ron received his Bachelor of Arts in History from the University of Montana in 1977, and his Masters in Science in Rural, Town, and Regional Planning from the University of Montana in 1987.

During his time with the City of Bozeman, Ron saw the important role that HRDC has played in our community. Ron has seen that HRDC provides necessary social services to assure that all Bozeman residents could obtain housing, food, training, employment and the other necessities of life. He also came to understand that HRDC was always able to respond immediately as new community needs arose. Ron believes that the dedication, hard work, and compassion of HRDC’s staff make it a real honor to serve on the Board.

Ron also serves on the Trails, Open Space and Parks Committee for the City of Bozeman, and as a volunteer with the Red Cross. One of Ron’s favorite activities is walking his beloved dog every day, enjoying many of Bozeman’s trails and parks, like Burke Park, Bozeman Creek, and the Hyalite and Mount Ellis areas. Ron and his wife Claire enjoy spending their days with family, friends, and time outdoors.
