In 2013, Larimer County and all its cities and towns partnered to complete a regional study of land conservation, outdoor recreation, and natural resources stewardship. The study, Our Lands – Our Future: examined citizen preferences for conservation and recreation, analyzed the economic benefits of open space in Larimer County, and developed an online interactive mapping tool and a financial model to help predict future funding scenarios. The study provided a wealth of information and has been recognized nationally, receiving awards from the Society for Outdoor Recreation Professionals and the Colorado chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects.
On the heels of Our Lands – Our Future, Larimer County Natural Resources is updating the 2001 Open Lands Master Plan. The County kicked off the process at the end of April, and is now prepared to share the recommendations of the new master plan with the public.
The purpose of the meeting is to collect citizen input on the preliminary recommendations for the new Open Lands Master Plan that will guide the County’s Open Lands Program for the next decade. This come-and-go style event is free and open to the public, food and refreshments will be provided. Please come and give us your feedback!
