On Oct. 18, 2011, the Madison County Commission passed the Big Sky Mountain Trails, Recreation and Parks Special District. The Commission passed the final resolution 3-0, citing no opposition in the 30-day comment period.
This achieves the almost yearlong goal of creating a multi-jurisdictional district, which will allow Big Sky to maintain control of the parks and trails within the area.
Gallatin County passed a similar resolution in July and both have approved an interlocal agreement, which will allow the contiguous districts to be administered by one board with representation from both counties.
Board positions will be advertised for 30 days by each county prior to appointment, bringing this process to completion.
