Arapahoe County invites the public to attend a virtual town hall on Thursday, March 25 at 6:30 p.m. to discuss the future of the Arapahoe County Open Spaces program. The County has drafted an updated Master Plan, which includes a vision for the future of the County’s open spaces, parks, trails, and heritage areas and offers recommendations to continue providing quality spaces for residents to enjoy.
The virtual town hall will highlight community input received to date and share the proposed plan priorities, objectives and recommendations for the next decade and beyond. The updated plan will be completed by summer 2021 and serve as a blueprint for the program’s future through 2031.
This work is especially timely given the County’s rapid population growth and development; careful planning is essential to prepare for the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead. The work also dovetails with the County’s mission to enhance high quality of life for all residents.
Draft plan recommendations include:
Interested residents can call into the town hall on March 25 at 6:30 p.m. by dialing 1-855-436-3656, or by visiting www.arapahoegov.com/townhall.
