OSMP Master Plan Workshop
City invites input to help prioritize how Boulder’s open space is managed over the next decade
The City of Boulder invites community members to a workshop on Monday, March 18, to hear how the city should prioritize its management of open space over the next 10 years. Community feedback collected at this final Open Space and Mountain Parks Master Plan community workshop – along with input gathered through an online questionnaire – will play a critical role in helping the city to prepare a draft OSMP Master Plan, which will be released to the public in May.
During the community workshop – which will be held from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at OSMP’s Administrative Building (HUB), 2520 55th St.– Open Space and Mountain Parks (OSMP) Department staff will ask community members to:
- Share their thoughts for how Boulder’s open space should be managed to prepare for declining departmental funding. In 2020, open space sales tax changes will result in a 30-percent decrease in OSMP’s total funding compared to 10 years ago.
- Review Master Plan proposed outcomes for Boulder’s open space and participate in an interactive exercise to inspire individuals around shared stewardship.
Community members input will help prioritize Master Plan strategies for management of Open Space and Mountain Parks over the next decade and beyond. For those who cannot attend the workshop, an online questionnaire will be available on OSMPMasterPlan.org Monday, March 25, through midnight, Sunday, April 7.
Community members interested in attending the March 18 workshop – which is family friendly and will include a children’s activity area – are encouraged to bike or take public transportation. Light snacks will also be provided.
