WE WANT YOUR FEEDBACK:
The Town Park Master Plan is being updated to guide future decisions regarding Town Park properties for the next 10 to 15 years. Town properties include the following: Town Park, Pocket Parks on Colorado Ave, and the River Park Corridor.
Over the past several months, the project team received and reviewed ample and diverse public input on the community’s short term and long term needs and wants for Town Park properties.
*A summary of input is available under the “Related Links” section on the right hand side bar.
In response to the public input, Zehren and Associates prepared preliminary concepts for improvements to Town Park properties.
*The Concept Plans, including an overview and presentation video, is available for review under the “Related Links” section on the right hand side bar.
Please review the Concept Plans and submit comments via email to project consultant, Pedro Campos, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The existing Town Park Master Plan was adopted in 2005 and can be viewed online at http://www.telluride-co.gov/188/Park-Master-Plan.
The purpose of the existing Town Park Master Plan is to help guide future decisions regarding design, use, activities, and facility improvements for Town Park properties.
Town Park properties include the following: Town Park, Pocket Parks on Colorado Avenue, and the River Park Corridor.
During the 2020 budget process, Town Council designated the Town Park Master Plan Update project as a goal and objective and allocated funding for execution.
Staff released a Request for Qualifications in November 2019 to seek consultant firms to assist with this project. Staff received three responses. A subcommittee consisting of two P&R Commission members, one Town Council member, and two P&R staff members was established to review the proposals, interview the respondents, and select a consultant firm for the project.
Zehren and Associates, Inc. was selected to assist with the Town Park Master Plan Update project.
The final product will be an updated Town Park Master Plan for adoption by the Parks and Recreation Commission, Planning and Zoning Commission, and Town Council.
