Please come out and join your fellow mountain biking friends and Medicine Wheel supporters at the upcoming Colorado Springs Utilities public open house for the Watershed Access Plan. This is your chance to voice your opinions, needs and desires for the recreational use of the amazingly beautiful watershed area surrounding Pikes Peak.

Below is the info from Gwen Happ, CSU Issues Manager:

Colorado Springs Utilities is developing a comprehensive plan to define appropriate recreational opportunities on local city owned watershed lands. This plan will help to identify any environmental constraints, and subsequently the appropriate recreational opportunities for municipal watershed lands. This plan is intended to create an overall vision for the future of recreation on Colorado Springs Utilities watershed system lands. Furthermore, this plan will refine strategies, standards, projects, and ways to implement and monitor this vision.

How Can You Help?
Throughout this planning process CSU has been soliciting input from interested stakeholders and the general public to help shape the future of recreation on Colorado Springs Watershed Lands. After several months of valuable input, a proposed conceptual plan for recreation on watershed lands has been developed.

We would like your feedback. Please plan to attend to attend the entire open house on January 26, 2010 where you can review the proposed conceptual plan, ask questions of CSU staff and the planning team, and provide your input and feedback.
