Park County receives grant for mapping

PARK COUNTY – Park County has been awarded a $57,250 Mineral Impact Assistance Fund grant to help fund parcel mapping throughout the county. The grant comes through the Colorado Division of Local Affairs (DOLA).Data produced by the project will be maintained in the county’s Geographic Information System, or GIS, and will support many applications such as emergency response, zoning and land ownership. “Land parcels are a fundamental layer in a county’s GIS,” said Craig Barraclough, Park County GIS director. “And up until now we have not had the resources to tackle such a big project. The support from DOLA, and the number of partners involved in this project, really show how important this information is.”Tom Eisenman, the county’s developmental services coordinator, said the data resulting from this project will enhance planning. In addition, a $5,000 Wildland Urban Interface Community and Rural Fire Assistance grant was secured through the BLM, and the Mosquito Range Heritage Initiative contributed $7,500.
