OPD Logo_vertical-07.jpg

About MAP The Montana Association of Planners (MAP) is an association of professional planners, from public and private entities; planning board members and interested citizens. Though most often associated with guiding future land use and development, local planning efforts also include planning for public facilities and service needs, historic preservation, environmental protection, transportation, parks and recreation, and economic development. Planning provides options and tools for communities to achieve their vision of the future. MAP takes no position for or against growth, but rather promotes planning as a positive and proactive way to address change in our communities. Contact us: mtplanners.org@gmail.com

We Will Park County, a vision and profile initiative of the Park County Community Foundation

In 2018, the Community Foundation launched We Will Park County, a county wide vision and profile tool that will be used to intentionally plan, measure, predict and achieve increases in community, social and economic well-being. Through fact-based and strategic philanthropy, improved county-wide civic planning, and increased coordination among nonprofit and governmental efforts, We Will Park County is designed to guide long-term, sustainable action.
We Will Park County is a citizen-informed initiative of the Park County Community Foundation that aims to address Park County’s most pressing needs. Via an online survey that elicited more than 600 responses from throughout the county; eight focus groups in Clyde Park, Wilsall, Livingston, Emigrant, Gardiner and Cooke City; and dozens of other conversations with community leaders some key priorities and concerns emerged around a common vision
·We Will continually strive to improve the well-being of our residents.
·We Will support development of diverse and viable economic opportunities consistent with the character of our community.
·We Will support good solutions that address affordability for all who choose to live and work here.
·We Will embrace and nurture our sense of community.
·We Will remain one of the most beautiful places to live on earth.
This vision won’t amount to much if it is not backed up with data to help predict and measure progress toward that vision. With the help of economists from University of Montana, Headwaters Economics, and more, We Will Park County identified 25 key metrics in these five core areas that will help focus our resources and energy. This data will be continuously collected, tracked and available via a web-based portal for any organization, business, government, or nonprofit that seeks to better serve the community. We Will Park County will be launched online in Fall 2019.

TOUR - The Gardiner Gateway Project

Classroom session with a 45 minute overview presentation by speakers followed by question and answers. Then a tour to Gardiner to review the project. The tour will require approximately 1.0 mile walking around the Gardiner Area and take approximately 4 hours to Gardiner and back to Chico.
he Gardiner Gateway Project started with Yellowstone National Park’s (YNP) public scoping in 2010 for the North Entrance Park Street Environmental Assessment.  The YNP scoped project received a National Environmental Protection Act (NEPA) Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) determination in fall 2011, which allowed the project to move forward when funding for design and construction was secured. Subsequently YNP presented to the un-incorporated Gardiner Community in December 2011 an opportunity to create a holistic project that addressed many of the local issues brought forth during the 2010 public scoping that were outside of YNP purview.
What resulted were several collaborative projects that involved fifteen (15) local, state, and federal agencies and organizations led by a local Steering Committee of the primary stakeholders from Yellowstone National Park, the Greater Gardiner Community Council (GGCC), the Gardiner Chamber of Commerce, the Yellowstone Association and Park County Montana.  The local steering committee created a sense of urgency with desire to have work along Park Street and in Arch Park completed for the National Park Service Centennial on August 25th, 2016. 
Members of the Steering Committee will present on how the partnerships were initially formed in the spring of 2012 leading to a Memorandum of Understanding among all the partners in June 2012 and some of the challenges the Steering Committee faced related to delivering the project and meeting the goals set forth in the Memorandum of Understanding.

Keynote Address

Montana’s Changing Climate: Should We Worry?

This presentation focuses on the findings of the Montana Climate Assessment, and the feedback that we’ve received talking to groups across Montana.  Montana has already experienced an average increase of 2-3oF in the last 70 years, and climate projections indicate additional warming, earlier winter snowmelt and onset of spring, and more late-summer drought in the future. We need to plan for the consequences of climate change, including climate extremes, longer growing seasons, water shortages, and more wildfires in the decades ahead.

OId Yellowstone Trail

Powell County has obtained ownership of a significant length of the historic Milwaukee, Chicago, Saint Paul and Pacific Railroad right of way as the foundation for a recreational trail system that would run from the community of Garrison southward to the City of Deer Lodge. The trail would run through multiple property ownerships and require a thoughtful and balanced approach to managing recreational uses to ensure that the existing ranching operations continue unhindered and private property is undisturbed. The entire length of the proposed trail system is 11.9 miles.  This plan provides a framework for the trail systems use, management and improvement. The plan is based upon the knowledge of the Park Board, County Commission and with input from residents of Powell County and the City of Deer Lodge. The planning process was used to identify the opportunities and challenges that exist with establishing and managing a new recreational trail through part of the Deer Lodge Valley. The plan is also meant to provide a sensible approach to constructing improvements and providing maintenance in a logical and economically sustainable manner.

Partnerships and Planning for Wildfire

The wildland-urban interface (WUI), or the area where homes intermingle with natural vegetation, is the fastest growing land use type in the country and the area where wildfires pose the greatest risk to people and homes. In Montana, 64% of homes are located in the WUI and development trends are projected to continue.
In Park County, the land use planning department, land management agencies, fire personnel, emergency services, and non-profit organizations collaborated on new strategies to address development in the WUI and other wildfire-prone lands. As part of this, new research was developed to better understand the costs of wildfires and of building homes to wildfire-resistant standards. Results from this research have gained national attention and facilitated a regional dialogue around land use planning strategies to mitigate wildfire risks.
This session will feature key panelists from Park County’s wildfire partnership, as well as best practices and lessons learned from other Montana communities. Valuable resources and insights will be shared with the group, including an opportunity to engage in discussion with the panelists about what’s next for Montana’s WUI.
Participants will:
Better understand the increasing trends in home development and wildfire risks in the WUI.
Learn about a local partnership between public and private organizations to address development in wildfire-prone lands.
Hear from Montana communities on best practices, lessons learned, and key insights regarding land use planning approaches to reduce wildfire risks.
