[ARCHIVED] Master Plan Public Workshop #2 Scheduled for Jan. 24

The second opportunity for public input for the Comprehensive Parks, Recreation, Open Space, Trails and River (PROSTR) Master Plan will take place on Wednesday, January 24, 2018, from 5:30pm to 8pm at the Steamboat Community Center. 

“Whether you are an avid enthusiast of Steamboat’s parks and recreation offerings or have never used the facilities or amenities before, we want to hear from you!” said John Overstreet, parks and community services director for the City of Steamboat Springs.  “This is your opportunity to shape the direction and focus for the next decade.” 

The public event will kick off with a short presentation by consultants, Logan Simpson, outlining the master plan goals & objectives, what’s been learned to date, recap of existing plans and polices, and the community’s values and vision.  The presentation will be followed by a work session with break-out stations. 

The majority of the evening will be dedicated to the work session with six dedicated break-out work stations.  At each station, participants will address a number of questions specific to the topic, develop a list of ideas, changes and potential improvements and report back. During this portion, each station will be devoted to one of the following areas of interest: 
  • Howelsen Hill & Park Area (two stations); 
  • Yampa River & Core Trail; 
  • City-Wide Trails & Emerald Mountain; 
  • Open Space; 
  • Parks & Recreation Facilities 
As a way to close the evening, each participant will select what they envision are the two best ideas from each of the break-out stations as well as identify five more areas of focus on any of the topics addressed that evening. 
Throughout the Master Planning, the team will affirm goals and objectives, analyze trends and demographics, evaluate supply and demand, and provide recommendations and priorities for improvements throughout the parks, recreation, open space, trails and river system. 

The Master Plan provides a 10-year vision for the city’s park and recreation facilities and amenities, as well as an action plan for implementing this vision. The City of Steamboat Springs is working with Logan Simpson, an award-winning landscape architecture & environmental planning firm on the project.  For more information and to sign-up for Master Plan project updates visit:
