Feedback sought for Lazy Glen

Staff report

The public is invited to weigh in on a draft management plan for Lazy Glen Open Space from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday at Basalt Town Hall.

Pitkin County Open Space and Trails will provide food, maps of the property and information on what the draft plan proposes for this 73-acre open space in the midvalley. Lazy Glen Open Space is located across the Roaring Fork River from Lazy Glen subdivision, between Basalt and Old Snowmass.

The draft management plan envisions a pedestrian bridge across the river to link Lazy Glen subdivision with the Rio Grande Trail, which crosses through the open space. Small-scale agriculture and potential riparian restoration along the river are also proposed. The plan outlines an area to walk dogs under sight and voice control on the south side of the river. Most of the open space is north of the river, including access to Bionaz Gulch, which links to BLM lands. The access is closed pending adoption of the management plan.

The draft management plan and an online comment form are available at

Public comments will be accepted through April 8. Final adoption of the plan by the Open Space and Trails Board is scheduled in early May.
