A group of Missoulians are working to get more money for city and county parks. John O’Connor is a member a group called the Friends of Fort Missoula Regional Park, O’Connor and others are hoping to get a new bond on the ballot.

“We presented a request to the Missoula Board of County Commissioners to put a $42 million, 20 year general obligation bond [on the ballot], to fund improvements to parks, repairs, and establish a new county parks/trails program, and fully develop the Fort Missoula Regional Park Project, which has been in the works since 1988,” said John O’Connor, a member a group called the Friends of Fort Missoula Regional Park.

O’Connor explains how much the bond will cost property owners

“The bond that we’re proposing works out to be about $3 a month for an average homeowner,” O’Connor said. “That’s on a $200,000 home. If the home was slightly more than the bond would be slightly more, if the home was less the bond would be slightly less per month.”

County Commissioner Michelle Landquist says that a public informational meeting about the proposed bond will occur on Thursday June 5, followed by a public hearing on Wednesday June 25.
