Seat vacant on Open Space Advisory Council

SUMMIT COUNTY – The Summit County Open Space Advisory Council (OSAC) is accepting applications for a vacant seat representing the Snake River Basin.

The OSAC is a citizen-appointed board responsible for recommending open space acquisition priorities to the Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) and providing input on the county’s overall Open Space protection program.

The Advisory Council consists of 11 members – two representatives from each of the county’s four planning basins, (Upper Blue, Lower Blue, Snake River and Ten Mile) and three at-large representatives.

Members are appointed by the BOCC and must be full-time residents of Summit County.

To date, nearly 10,500 acres have been protected by the Open Space Program.

“The citizens serving on the OSAC play a critical role in the success of Summit County’s open space program,” said Todd Robertson, County Open Space and Trails director. “Besides their knowledge and perspectives on open space issues, they are a vital link between the community and county government on open-space protection.”

OSAC meetings are at 6 p.m. at the County Commons building the first Wednesday of each month.

Individuals serving on the OSAC include Chairman Scott Hummer (at-large), vice chairman Trudy Robinson (Lower Blue), Lynn Amstutz (Lower Blue), Mike Clary (Snake River), Bob Craig (at-large), Chris Hart (Upper Blue), Alan Henceroth (at-large), Martha Mackie (Ten Mile), Turk Montepare (Upper Blue) and Dan Pins (Ten Mile).

Send a letter describing your interest to the Summit County Open Space and Trails Department to P.O. Box 5660, Frisco, CO 80443 or by fax at (970) 668-4225. Applications must be submitted by 5 p.m. Aug. 18. For more information, call (970) 668-4060.
