About the Pattern Guide
This Pattern Guide is designed to provide guidance to homeowners, home builders, and small business owners looking to invest in the First Neighborhoods of Billings. The First Neighborhoods of Billings are close-in residential areas around Downtown. These neighborhoods include North Park, South Side Triangle, Central Terry, and Pioneer Park. The Pattern Guide describes the architectural styles, housing types, and uses in our First Neighborhoods. It is the intent of this Guide to identify and describe these characteristics, so new developments, infill projects or even small additions to existing homes can be smoothly integrated into the fabric of these areas. The Pattern Guide is not intended to become a regulation or mandate for development in these neighborhoods.
