CivicPlus_Feb 2021 Town Hall-01

Arapahoe County invites the public to attend a virtual town hall on Thursday, March 25 at 6:30 p.m. to discuss the future of the Arapahoe County Open Spaces program. The County has drafted an updated Master Plan, which includes a vision for the future of the County’s open spaces, parks, trails, and heritage areas and offers recommendations to continue providing quality spaces for residents to enjoy.

The virtual town hall will highlight community input received to date and share the proposed plan priorities, objectives and recommendations for the next decade and beyond. The updated plan will be completed by summer 2021 and serve as a blueprint for the program’s future through 2031.

This work is especially timely given the County’s rapid population growth and development; careful planning is essential to prepare for the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead. The work also dovetails with the County’s mission to enhance high quality of life for all residents. 

Draft plan recommendations include:

  • Providing equitable access to nature
  • Maintaining ecosystem health and resilience
  • Supporting a sustainable system through proactive programming, operations, and maintenance
  • Aligning plans and policies to maximize the impact of Open Spaces
  • Ensuring the future of the Open Spaces system

Interested residents can call into the town hall on March 25 at 6:30 p.m. by dialing 1-855-436-3656, or by visiting

The draft plan will be posted online at on March 23, for a 21-day public review from March 23-April 13. A brief survey will be posted with the plan to collect community feedback; the public is also invited to submit comments anytime at
