City-County Parks Board
A 1999 interlocal agreement between Helena and Lewis and Clark County established the City-County Consolidated Parks Board as recommended in the city and county parks, recreation, and open space plans. The board serves in an advisory capacity to the city and county commissions in parks, recreation, and open lands matters.
The seven board members may serve two three-year terms as set out in the bylaws adopted in 2001. Three members are appointed by the city, three by the county, and one jointly-appointed member representing the school district. The board's regular meeting is the first Wednesday of each month at 11:30 A.M. in the City-County Building, room 426.
The Parks Board's mission is: to promote investment in the development and maintenance of parks, recreation, trails, and open lands.
