Boulder Parks department Plan for the Future, but will it include Cyclists?

Tensions are growing over how Boulder Parks department has been handling the issue of bike access and in particular Valmont Bike Park. Challenges in hosting an event or even allowing Middle School kids to practice at the park can be a monumental effort to do legally. It will be interesting if the city will support a changing demographic in recreation or will it stick with that nations normal culture.

"We want to really identify what the community wants balanced with the limited resources that we have," Parks and Recreation Director Kirk Kincannon said.

Officials have held several public meetings, conducted a community survey and hired a consultant to help compare Boulder's parks amenities to other similar communities.

The Boulder City Council will give feedback on the master plan and parks priorities during a study session Tuesday, but that won't be the end of the process.
