"Charting the Future"

The Facilities Committee has engaged with Hord | Coplan | Macht (HCM) to assist the community in creating  a vision for our recreational spaces and trails.  We have planned two workshops to take us from vision to reality. The first community workshop was held on February 7th and the purpose was to listen to your thoughts and opinions about the potential for our recreational sites and how to plan for the future of these valuable amenities. Keeping areas as they are now is as important a concept as planning for some improvements.  They started off the evening with a short presentation about how the visioning process works and gave their initial impressions of the Vista, Foothills, and Solitude recreation areas and of our existing trails.  Small group discussions were held and from those HCM will compile our thoughts and sentiments.  These ideas are the foundation which HCM will build upon to generate conceptual plans for review and comment at a second community workshop to be scheduled sometime in April.

If you missed the meeting on 2/07, your voice can still be heard.  Just click here and answer the questionnaire!  Answers may be submitted through tomorrow 2/16.  We want to hear from YOU!

Keeping Genesee a living, evolving, adapting, forward-looking and caring body is a crucial message communicated through our mission:  to protect and preserve while being forward thinking.  Any vision for the future must account for an overall appreciation of nature:  our mountain views, wildlife, trails and natural beauty.  With a commitment to responsible stewardship of our open spaces, facilities, infrastructure and financial resources, the Board recently approved the selection of Hord | Coplan | Macht  (HCM) to design a road map for the improvement, integration and development of our recreational sites and trails.
