Review of Overarching Issues
The Boulder City Council has identified several "overarching issues" concerning the long-term sustainability of Open Space and Mountain Parks (OSMP) resources. The review and discussion of the overarching issues provide an opportunity for City Council, the Open Space Board of Trustees (OSBT), the community, and OSMP staff to discuss how current planning and management practices, existing programs, and new policy considerations could be used to ensure the long-term sustainability of OSMP resources and the continuation of high-quality visitor services.
OSMP develops an evaluation report or white paper to describe the program or policy issue, management options, evaluate options, and suggest possible recommendations.
Community review and feedback on options and recommendations.
Work with the OSBT and City Council to determine the program/policy changes to be implemented.
