The organization leading the affordable housing effort in Big Sky has given up $1 million in resort tax appropriations, throwing another wrench in its plan to develop 32 housing units on donated land.
The Big Sky Community Housing Trust announced Wednesday that it would be withdrawing its rollover application for the funds, which it was awarded in 2016 for work on the 32-unit project. The Big Sky Resort Tax board, which each June allocates annual resort tax collections, typically requires organizations to use the earmarked funds within a year or request a rollover.

BIG SKY – On June 1, the Big Sky Young Professionals will begin a mentorship program that pairs community members in the early stages of their careers with experienced professionals.
The mentors will be members of the Yellowstone Club, one of Big Sky’s private ski and golf communities.
Big Sky resident Lori Addicks will facilitate the program by setting expectations for both mentors and mentees, and by helping participants understand what kind of guidance they can expect.
The Yellowstone Club Community Foundation is pleased to announce the hiring of Britt Ide as its new Executive Director, effective June 1. Ide succeeds K. Casey Schwartz, the organization’s founding executive director. Schwartz will remain as a consultant to the Foundation.
