Colorado Springs' Park Master Plan Open for Comments

The city of Colorado Springs is accepting public comments on their new Park System Master Plan.  KRCC’s Tucker Hampson reports.
 

The plan looks to address the most important issues for the upcoming decade. The Executive Director of the Trails and Open Space Coalition is participating in the blueprint process, and TOSC Advocacy Director Bill Koerner says one of the issues in the draft is the need for more open space.

"It envisions some things that I think we’ve long thought about and talked about, and one of those is completing a ring of open space essentially around the city that would be connected by trails."

The master plan is expected to be completed over the next few months. According to TOSC, the target date for closing public comments is this week. The last master plan was released in 2000.
