Open Space Advisory Council

The Summit County Open Space Advisory Council is an appointed citizen board responsible for recommending open space acquisition priorities to the Summit Board of County Commissioners and providing input on the County's Open Space Protection Program.

The council consists of 12 members: two representatives from each of Summit County's four planning basins (pdf) (Upper Blue Basin, Lower Blue Basin, Snake River Basin and Tenmile Basin) and four at-large representatives. Members are appointed by the Board of County Commissioners and must be full-time residents of Summit County.


There are currently no openings on the Open Space Advisory Council. New opening notifications occur in January of the new year.
