Agricultural Leasing

The City of Boulder's Open Space and Mountain Parks (OSMP) land acquisition and preservation program was established in 1967 through a sales tax ballot initiative. From these community-driven first steps, the City of Boulder has acquired an interest in more than 45,000 acres of ecologically-rich and iconic landscapes that are highly valued by residents and visitors alike.

The department's charter purposes include the "Preservation of agricultural uses and land suitable for agricultural production" and the "Preservation of water resources in the natural or traditional state". As a result, OSMP owns water rights in more than 50 separate ditches and reservoirs and leases a third of its preserved land to local farmers and ranchers.
