City to Celebrate the Completion of Open Space & Mountain Parks’ Master Plan
The City of Boulder invites community members to an event Thursday, Feb. 20, to celebrate the completion of the city’s first-ever Open Space and Mountain Parks (OSMP) Master Plan and to invite and encourage community participation in the plan’s implementation.
During this event, OSMP staff will thank community members and partners for their involvement in developing the Master Plan, which the Boulder City Council accepted last September and will guide the management of the city’s open space over the next decade and beyond. OSMP staff also will share how the department is implementing high-priority strategies and invite ideas on how the community can help implement on the ground actions guided by the Master Plan over the next decade. The Master Plan appreciation event will be held from 6 to 8 p.m., at the OSMP Hub, 2520 55th St.
OSMP invites community members to hear from some of the department’s existing partners on what it means to collaborate with OSMP at 6 p.m. Appetizers and desserts also will be available for event participants to enjoy. Copies of the final Master Plan will be available to view at the event and will be available at OSMPMasterPlan.org on Thursday, Feb. 20. The final plan will include updates to the graphics and appearance but will have no changes to text that Council approved in September.
Over the 18-month process to develop the Master Plan, OSMP heard from thousands of community members and received more than 10,000 comments through seven community events, two dedicated listening sessions, a statistically valid community survey and multiple online questionnaires. OSMP staff also engaged with more than 1,400 people – including members of the Latinx community, people experiencing disabilities and youth – through dedicated outreach efforts. For more information on the Master Plan, please visit OSMPMasterPlan.org or call OSMP at 303-441-3440.
