2018 PROST Plan Overview
Missoula County Parks, Trails, and Open Lands Program, and City of Missoula Parks and Recreation Department are coordinating efforts to draft a new master Parks, Recreation, Open Space and Trails (PROST) plan for the greater Missoula valley and urban area that encompasses the City of Missoula and portions of the County.
The new PROST integrated plan will replace the 2004 Master Parks and Recreation Plan for the Greater Missoula Area, the 1995 Missoula Urban Area Open Space Plan, and the 2006 Open Space Plan update. At completion and adoption, the PROST plan will stand as a blueprint for the next 10 years of service to residents.
Thus far the PROST project has held four focus group sessions, and one open house focused on open space, administered a statistically valid county wide survey, and presented the results to elected officials and partners. The next phase of the project is to begin drafting the plan.
The Open Space Chapter will likely be completed first. Once drafts are complete, we will share them on our website as well as at a public open house. Please check back for updates, or contact Missoula County Parks, Trails, and Open Lands Program or Donna Gaukler, City of Missoula Parks and Recreation Director, if you have questions.
