Open Space Bond Information

Missoula County voters approved a $10 million bond in November 2006 for the purpose of preserving open space in Missoula County, with half allocated to the County and half allocated to the City of Missoula for use in the urban area.  An Interlocal Agreement establishes the procedures for administering the County and City Open Space programs.  The purposes for which bond funds can be used include:

In addition to its other responsibilities, OLC reviews and makes recommendations to the Board of County Commissioners (BCC) about projects in its jurisdiction area. It bases its recommendations on project evaluation criteria established by BCC resolution.
