Campaign Launches Supporting $42M Parks And Trail Bond

Posted: Updated:

A campaign encourages Missoula voters to check "yes" on their November ballots to approve a $42 million bond measure for Missoula Parks and Trails.

The Citizens for Parks and Trails campaign launched Tuesday, in Bonner Park.

It supports a 20 year general obligation bond set to appear on the November ballot.

“There's so many reasons why this bond proposal is so important. We really feel like this project has something for everyone. The first component is the county trails program, to expand on trails in the community, help with maintenance and help them to connect with other communities,” said John O’Connor with the Citizens for Parks and Trails campaign.

The bond money would be divided up between the trails program, a project to expand the Fort Missoula Regional Park, and to improve the aging infrastructure at Missoula playgrounds.

It would cost the owner of a median-priced home about three dollars per month in property taxes, or $37 per year, for 20 years.
