Trail Gaps

06/17/2013 – 12/31/2019

By 2019, 100% of all identified trail gaps and connection points recognized in the City’s Parks, Trails and Open Space Master Plan and Bicycle Master Plan as identified by the Arvada Park Advisory Committee and as approved by City Council are built/completed

Description

The 2016 Parks, Trails and Open Space Plan identifies the City's 8 major trail corridors (Barbara Gulch, Big Dry Creek, Heritage Canal, Leyden Creek, Little Dry Creek, Moon Gulch, Ralston Creek and Van Bibber Creek, and prioritizes--in high, medium and low--where trail gaps exist as of mid-2016.

In October 2016, the trail gap plan was reviewed with the City Council at a workshop and the priorities, as set forth in the 2016 Parks, Trails and Open Space Masterplan, were affirmed. This document is now used to inform budget priorities for the future and in determining which trail project might be eligible for grant funding.

With the priorities now set, the focus turns to the budget process as it concerns which of the prioritized trail gap projects will be included in the capital projects budget. At this time, the majority of all new trail projects are being completed by the developers of Candelas and Leyden Rock, as they are included in the development agreements as requirements to be completed by the developers of the projects. Completing gaps along other corridors will largely depend on grants received for specific trail segments.

 

Significance

The Arvada Parks, Trails and Open Space Master Plan directs big-picture decisions and funding priorities for the next 10 years and will ensure the Arvada parks system continues to meet the needs of the growing community, changing demographics, development patterns and outdoor recreation needs. A trail gap analysis is an integral component and is incorporated in the 2016 Arvada Parks, Trails and Open Space Master Plan.
