The City of Boulder’s Parks and Recreation Department is seeking the community’s input as part of its master plan update. The public is encouraged to participate in the open houses to share their input on what Boulder needs most in parks and recreation facilities and programs.
“These public input sessions offer a way for Boulder residents to share their voice and influence Boulder's active future,” said Kirk Kincannon, Parks and Recreation Department director. “We started this master plan process in early 2012 with the goal of establishing what’s important to our residents, and what is needed for the future of the Boulder Parks and Recreation system. Community input is vital to providing parks and recreation facilities that meet community expectations.”
The three master plan meetings are:
Wednesday, Oct. 24: Parks and Recreation Master Plan Meeting – North, from 6 to 8 p.m. at Columbine Elementary School, 3130 Repplier Drive, in the cafeteria.
Thursday, Oct. 25: Parks and Recreation Master Plan Meeting – East, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the East Boulder Community Center Commons, 5660 Sioux Drive.
Saturday, Oct. 27: Parks and Recreation Master Plan Meeting – South, from 1 to 3 p.m. at the South Boulder Recreation Center gymnasium, 1360 Gillaspie Drive.
The meetings will feature opportunities for the community to provide feedback on key issues shaping the Parks and Recreation Master Plan.
City Council and the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board (PRAB) will also be involved in the master plan process. A PRAB study session is scheduled for Monday, Oct. 22, and a council study session is scheduled for Tuesday, Nov. 27.
