The Clear Creek County Open Space Commission currently manages almost 5,000 acres.  Below is a listing of the properties with their location and acreage.  The total cost of all properties to date is just under $9 million.  Since the year 2000, taxpayers have contributed about $2.8 million through a one mil levy property tax approved by voters.  The remaining lands were obtained by the Open Space Commission via grants, donations, and exchanges; in order to preserve and maintain the county's unique character and natural environment by protecting our streams, woodlands, meadows, wildlife habitat, recreational opportunities, prominent vistas, geologic features and cultural resources to enhance the quality of life for residents and the enjoyment of the out-of-doors for residents and visitors.
