From someone very close and dedicated to outdoor mountain bike recreation in Boulder...
If you want more bike facilities in Boulder parks, YOU NEED TO SPEAK UP. This is your chance to get pump tracks in pocket parks, flow trails in spillways, an indoor riding arena at Valmont Bike Park. Show up Wed 10/24 6pm, Thurs 10/25 6pm, or Sat 10/27 1pm. The Boulder Mountainbike Alliance NEEDS YOU TO SHOW UP AND AND ASK FOR MORE BIKE FACILITIES. If you don't speak up, we don't have a leg to stand on advocating for any of these things. Make some time!!!
And if you want to help out be sure to attend one of the three public meetings highlighted below
Parks and Recreation Department hosts Master Plan Open Houses
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.
