The parks board voted to adopt the Strawberry Hill Master Plan. 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.
