Open Space and Mountain Parks Integrated Site Projects
Open Space and Mountain Parks (OSMP) is currently developing Integrated Site Projects (ISPs) for several specific locations. ISPs strive to achieve:
- How best to implement on-the-ground, previously-approved plans
- Sustain natural areas
- Improve visitor experiences
- Improve operations, services, and programs in the area
- Address other open space values as outlined in the Boulder City Charter.
The goal is to holistically plan for and to have clarity and as much as possible alignment across the community about the “on the ground” actions for an area in order to proceed to the implementation phase. These projects are guided by specific open space purposes in Section 176 of the city charter, which specifically lists OSMP’s responsibilities to the land and to the community. Previously approved land management plans and the project area’s resources – such as natural, agricultural, passive recreation, cultural and scenic resources - and ongoing service needs – such as Ranger patrols, maintenance operations and education and outreach - also help shape the on-the-ground actions.
OSMP is currently developing ISPs for the Wonderland Lake area, the Gebhard property on the South Boulder Creek Corridor, and Gunbarrel Hill. For additional details and information please see the corresponding project webpage below.
