Evaluating the Voice and Sight Tag Program
The Voice and Sight Tag (Tag) Program was initiated in 2006 as a trial. Both the Boulder City Council and the Open Space Board of Trustees (OSBT) have indicated interest in a review of the program. As one of several "overarching issues," City Council directed OSMP staff to evaluate the program. Information about the evaluation, updates about the process, and opportunities for community input will be available on this webpage.

OSMP has prepared an evaluation of the Tag Program. The evaluation includes:
