2018 Parks, Recreation, Open Space and Trails Plan

2018 PROST Plan Project Overview

Missoula County Parks, Trails, and Open Lands and Missoula Parks and Recreation Department are drafting a new master Parks, Recreation, Open Space and Trails (PROST) plan for the greater Missoula valley and urban area including the City of Missoula and portions of Missoula County.

This new, integrated plan will replace the 2004 Master Parks and Recreation Plan for the Greater Missoula Area and the 1995 Missoula Urban Area Open Space Plan with 2006 Update, and will stand as a blueprint for the next 10 years of parks and recreation service to residents.

When completed, the plan will include:

  • Public involvement processes and facilitation, including timely communications with citizens and elected officials through web updates, presentations and news releases.
  • A statistically valid Citizen Survey (PDF)
  • Identification of potential inter-agency and public/private partnerships
  • Consultant services for evaluation of land, facilities, and program needs, maintenance services, park management, operations funding, as well as recreation program evaluations
  • Review of operational efficiency and program service delivery
    GIS Mapping
