“You may have read today’s Coloradoan cover story about a meeting for
public input to the City of Fort Collins Parks and Recreation Plan. It
is scheduled for this Thursday (June 12) at 5 PM at the Northside
Aztalan Community Center. The news article said the City had retained
a consultant (GreenPlay) who, through focus groups determined that
residents favored parks hosting community gatherings and large events.
We know a velodrome and cycling park could provide a venue for great
events and gatherings, and not just for cycling. With the weekly
growth of participation and attendance at the 6 Day Races at the CSU
Oval, it is a good time to remind parks planners that we need some
land for our facility. Not as much as golf, tennis, soccer, or
baseball facilities take of course, but some land is required. Legacy
Park has been eyed by our association as a possibility, and while it
has challenging aspects, it could be put to far better use by us than
it currently is.
Please plan to attend this meeting and show your support for a
community park facility for competitive and recreational cycling,
including the velodrome. “
And also related, has anyone gone to the 6 Day racing on the Oval, what is it like?
