Ute Valley ParkÔ??s future to be focus of August 12 meeting
Monday, August 11, 2014


Colorado Springs, Colo - Citizens interested in the future of Ute Valley Park are encouraged to attend an upcoming meeting to discuss a proposed new Master and Management Plan for the park:

  • Tuesday,  Aug. 12
  • 6:30 – 8:00 p.m.
  • Fire Station 18, 6830 Hadler View

Participants can provide input on what they value about the park, changes they would like to see made, and what they would like the Master and Management Plan to achieve. The meeting is one of approximately 15 “Meetings-in-a-Box” hosted by individuals and organizations over the past month.

The Master and Management Plan will be a road map for the future of the park, identifying appropriate recreational uses that respond to community interests while including strategies to sustain the natural ecosystems.

Results from all of the “Meetings-in-a-Box” will be compiled and reported at the first of a series of open community workshops with residents in developing the Master and Management Plan. The first workshop is slated for 5:30 - 8:30 p.m., September 23 at Eagleview Middle School, 1325 Vindicator Drive. All meetings are being sponsored by Colorado Springs Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services.

For more information about the project, please contact Project Manager Sarah Bryarly at sbryarly@springsgov.com or 385-6533.
