A DRAFT of the Management Plan Update for Glassier Open Space is ready for your review and feedback!

The full plan can be viewed HERE with Action Items beginning on page 52. Some of the highlights include:
  • 4.1 Biodiversity and Agricultural Land Management Actions
    • Integrating wildlife habitat and agricultural land enhancements together, focusing on irrigation efficiencies and innovative agricultural practices to enhance the land's productivity and benefit wildlife.
    • Reconfiguring the agricultural lease areas to focus production where it is economically viable and enable OST to improve degraded areas of the property. 
    • Amending the seasonal closure to match the Rio Grande Trail winter closure from Nov 30 - April 30 with the opening date coordinated with Colorado Parks and Wildlife.  
  • 4.2 Farmstead Actions
    • The plan sets forth a process to better utilize the farmstead area and evaluate options to provide on-site housing - including the potential of rehabilitating the Glassier house.
  • 4.3 Recreation Actions
    • Add a new pedestrian/equestrian trail connection to Nancy’s Path.
    • No directional trails or additional mountain bike trails are proposed at this time (see action item 4.3 on page 60 of the draft plan for more details).
