Everyone has been talking about how much Bozeman has changed. It's true, some parts of Bozeman aren't recognizable anymore, and are downright cringeworthy.


In the past few years, a lot of people have moved to Bozeman. While that's great news for Bozeman's economy, it isn't the best news for longtime residents. Complaints about out-of-state transplants are fairly common on almost every social media platform. Developers and property owners have been raking in the cash while locals are forced to make sacrifices in order to stay in the place they've called home for years.

There is so much change happening in Bozeman, that it's difficult to keep track of it all. It seems that new developments and construction have become the norm. Longtime local businesses are closing their doors to make room for big box stores and national retailers.

I work a full-time job and make a decent salary, but I still have a hard time getting by. I'm thankful to have a roof over my head, but that's about it. After I pay bills, I barely have any money left. I know I'm not the only person living paycheck to paycheck. Financial struggles have hit a lot of people in Bozeman.

Hand open empty an wallet. Poor or personal financial problem concept.

I lived in Bozeman in the early 2000s. I left in 2005 and returned in 2016. When I moved back, I was surprised to see how much had changed. It definitely wasn't the Bozeman I remembered from my college days.

Sadly, it isn't getting any better. Maybe one of the millionaires that recently moved to Bozeman will adopt me so that I can afford to live here.
