Open Space Advisory Committee

The Open Space Program is supported and directed by the Open Space Advisory Committee. The Open Space Advisory Committee (OSAC) was created to evaluate and fund projects that would permanently preserve lands of significant scenic, cultural or environmental quality within the county. Using specific Open Space Criteria, OSAC members evaluate potential open space properties and provide recommendations to the Board of County Commissioners regarding land acquisitions, site improvement plans and organizational development of the Open Space Program.  


OSAC meets on the second Monday of each month from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. Field trips are often required. 

Open Space meetings can be viewed online at
