County Parks’ 20-Year Plan

By Beacon Staff

For the first time in its history, the county’s parks and recreation department is undertaking a 20-year master plan.

The plan will evaluate existing facilities and programs to decide recommendations and priorities for future park acquisitions, projects and services. More specifically, it will aim to address concerns regarding access to lakes and rivers, upgrading existing park facilities and meeting the demands of a growing population as well as, of course, possible funding options.

Last month, the parks department held a series of public meetings to take comment on the plan, but as part of the planning process, the County Parks Board is also encouraging everyone to take a community survey to share your opinions about the future of Flathead County Parks .

“If you weren’t able to attend a community meeting, you can still give us your input by taking the survey,” said consultant Kate McMahon in a press release today.
