Parks Approves 2 Master Plans

The parks board voted to adopt the Strawberry Hill Master Plan and the new master plan for North Cheyenne Cañon Park.

The Broadmoor will construct the trails and facilities for Strawberry Hill and will be responsible for maintaining the property in accordance with a conservation easement held by The Palmer Land Trust.  Construction on the Strawberry Hill property, phase 1 of the plan and the creation of an erosion control plan will not commence until the completion of the current legal case that has been submitted to the Colorado Supreme Court. Visit www.StrawberryHillMasterPlan.com for more information.

Some highlights of the North Cheyenne Cañon Master Plan include:
• 350+ residents participated in the drafting of the plan
• The park will expand from 19 to 35 miles of trails
• New interpretive programs will be offered
• Recommendation of improved parking and additional trailheads
• Criteria for keeping or removing pullouts
• Recommendation to hire additional seasonal employees
Trail building begins Saturday, June 16 with Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado (http://www.voc.org) scheduled
to coordinate work on the Buffalo Canyon Trail at Helen Hunt Falls. Additional projects are planned for this
summer.  Visit www.ColoradoSprings.gov/NCCMasterPlan for more information.
