Parks & Open Space Advisory Committee (POSAC) Public Meeting, Nov. 17, 2022
The Parks & Open Space Advisory Committee heard a presentation on Docket BCCP-22-0001 on Nov. 17, 2022
The Boulder County Comprehensive Plan (BCCP) is the county’s primary policy document to guide land use and related decision making in unincorporated Boulder County.
Staff in Boulder County Community Planning & Permitting are working with Boulder County Parks & Open Space to update the mapping information associated with the Environmental Resources Element of the Boulder County Comprehensive Plan. Staff is not proposing any change to the policies of the Environmental Resources Element. However, the proposed map modifications are related to the Comprehensive Plan and will include:
- Displaying environmental resource information in municipalities and county subdivisions on official maps to provide a more comprehensive understanding of resources within the geographic boundaries of the county;
- Correcting issues identified in the Wetlands & Riparian Areas Maps and the Rare Plant Areas & Significant Natural Communities Maps;
- Updating information in the Species of Special Concern and Significant Natural Communities List and associated narrative;
- Removing Critical Wildlife Habitat #36 from the Critical Wildlife Habitat Map, based on the approved update to the Carolyn Holmberg Preserve at Rock Creek Farm Management Plan in 2020.
