Regional Open Space Inventory


The U.S. Forest Service awarded NVCOG a grant to research and catalog priority Open Space parcels across the region. Open Space benefits residents and municipalities by raising property values, increasing access to outdoor recreation, and protecting land for ecosystem services.

The major deliverable of this project will be an updated and improved Open Space viewer with detailed attributes including ownership, acreage, level of legal protection, public access status, and more. An accompanying report will explore regulatory and non-regulatory suggestions to protect committed Open Space, and highlight priority parcels.
