Boulder County Parks & Open Space is preparing a management plan
for the East Boulder Creek (EBC) Site and is seeking public comments.
The area is just north of Erie and is primarily bounded by US Highway 287
on the west, State Highway 52 (Mineral Road) on the north, and East
County Line Road on the east. Kenosha and Jasper Roads form boundaries
on the south and east. The 1377-acre site is an opportunity to welcome the
community to a new public space while ensuring a thriving habitat and
agriculture values. The site is composed of five individual open space
properties that contain a dozen ponds and five miles of perennial streams
along Boulder Creek and Coal Creek.
The goal is to provide a welcoming space for all in the community
while conserving the open space values important to everyone.
Agriculture, wildlife, native plants, and public use can all exist in
harmony at this site. Public input will help shape the future of the site
and the priorities for conservation and community access.
Boulder County values your input and is reaching out to solicit your
participation in this process.
What can you do now?
Step 1: Watch the short introductory video on the website.
Step 2: Take the survey and share your feedback.
Step 3: Request additional input opportunities with the planning team
whose emails are included below.
Will there more opportunities for involvement? Yes, a second phase of the
planning process will begin in the spring and include more information
about the site, visits to the area, another survey, and additional public
meetings. The entire process is expected to last through the remainder of
2023 with further outreach and engagement later in the year.
