Open Space Advisory Committee (OSAC)
With the passage in 1996 of two initiatives by Manitou Springs' voters authorizing the raising of funds to acquire open space, City Council subsequently passed a resolution which established the powers and duties of the Open Space Advisory Committee (OSAC). One of the first duties of the committee was to develop the Manitou Springs Open Space Plan (13Mb pdf). The purpose of the plan was to help initiate the process of implementing an open space program and to:
- Develop criteria for selecting land in and around the city for designation as open space;
- Develop priorities for acquiring land that meets the selected criteria; and
- Develop acquisition strategies for the selected lands.
