Briefs (Pitkin County to discuss Glassier on Wednesday; Faraway dumpsters in Snowmass closed)
Glassier talks on Wednesday
Recreational uses of Pitkin County’s Glassier Open Space will be the focus when the steering committee that is helping draft a management plan for the property convenes on Wednesday.
The group will meet in the Town Council chambers at Basalt Town Hall from 5 to 7 p.m. Discussion topics will include creating a sustainable trail connection to the Crown, dogs, fishing access, parking and other potential recreation as well as wildlife protection.
The steering committee has been meeting monthly since February to help Pitkin County Open Space and Trails draft a management plan for about 282 acres located off Hooks Spur Road in the Emma area. The open space, acquired in two pieces, stretches from the Roaring Fork River up onto the slopes of the Crown, a popular recreation area managed by the Bureau of Land Management.
The management plan will address agriculture, recreation and wildlife conservation on the open space. Anyone with an interest in the planning is welcome at the meeting.

Residents impacted by the dumpster site closure can use the facilities at the intersections of Brush Creek and Sinclair roads and Brush Creek and Meadow roads.

Basalt mayoral candidates Bill Kane and Rob Leavitt said at a Feb. 10 forum they endorsed the town government’s $1.34 million expenditure to expand a riverfront park. Candidate and councilman Bill Infante said not so fast and provided an alternative view.
