The City of Steamboat Springs, in collaboration with the National Parks Service and Oxbow Design Collaborative, is working to update the Bear River Park Master Plan and has hosted a series of open houses to present information regarding the project and solicit public feedback.
The third public meeting will take place on Wednesday, May 25th, in conjunction with the Parks and Recreation Commission work session. The meeting will begin at 5:30 PM at Citizens’ Hall (124 10th Street).
Oxbow Design Collaborate and the National Parks Service will be presenting the next round of conceptual plans for Bear River Park, based on feedback that was received at the first two community meetings and the public information website www.bearriverpark.com. Anyone who is interested reviewing the plans and providing feedback is encouraged to attend. After this meeting, the next step will be to take the plan to City Council for review and approval.
The goal of this planning effort is to create a viable, financially feasible master plan for the site, and to guide the next phase of improvements to the park. This plan is an update to the 2004 park master plan and will incorporate the most efficient, sustainable and desirable uses of the park space, through extensive community participation. The various comments regarding what the park should be, as well as the available land and features of the park, will be weighed equally with the number of responses favoring specific amenities. The end result will be a park that is consistently used by a diverse array of park users and will be one that is supported and stewarded by the community.
