Public comment sought on Drew Creek County Park
The Missoula County Board of Commissioners has directed staff to gauge the community's support to divest of Drew Creek County Park. Under the proposal, the park parcel would be sold per the process defined by Montana Law (MCA 7-16-2324) and at the highest and best use value. The County is committed to directing sale proceeds towards any combination of acquisition, development, or enhancement of County recreation sites and facilities more conveniently located for the majority of Seeley Lake residents.
A condition of the sale will include establishing a public access easement along a segment of the existing road within the park. This easement, in addition to securing public access to Forest Service land to the east, would satisfy a request from adjacent landowners to legally access their property to the south of the park parcel.
