Boulder County Parks & Open Space Public Hearing

Help Preserve Open Space Lands by Attending and Speaking at this Important Meeting 

When:  Thursday, November 8, 2018
Time:  3:00 p.m.
Place:  Boulder County Courthouse, 1325 Pearl Street, 3rd floor

Sign up to speak: Outside the meeting room, there is a sign-up sheet.  3 minutes of speaking time for an individual & up to 10 minutes by pooling with 3 others.  Some talking points are listed below.
This is a critical meeting.  The Boulder County Commissioners are considering removing the designation of Open Space from selected Boulder County Open Space trail corridors (this includes Twin Lakes!), where e-bike access is deemed appropriate.   The implications of this proposed change are enormous for the entire County.

Please come and urge the Commissioners to leave our Open Space trail corridors in Open Space.  Open Space is protected and paid for with our hard earned tax dollars.

There are 41 miles of trails covering ~ 153 acres that could be affected by decisions made on Thursday.  Please make an effort to attend this meeting and speak.  Each speaker will get 3 minutes to speak.  Speakers can pool time up to 10 minutes.
If you cannot make the meeting, writing a letter is an important way to get your voice heard.
