Update on June 15 Meeting and Next Steps
Thank you for your continued interest in the planning process to update the Town of Vail Comprehensive Open Lands Plan and to those who took time to attend our community workshop on June 15. During this workshop, staff gathered feedback from the community on the specifics of the Open Lands Plan including identified parcels for acquisition, and determination on certain town-owned parcels. The group encouraged the addition of more Designated Open Space in town, including the Middle Bench of Donovan Park, and support neighborhood connection trails, as long as they are built to minimize impacts on wildlife and have thoroughly researched user groups. In addition, while the group recognized the need for affordable housing, they felt that partnerships should be explored in Vail and down valley before town-owned vacant land was developed in town limits.
