City and county leaders are seeking additional community input on a refresh of the Open Space, Parks, Recreation and Trails master plan. 

A community survey on the refresh has received approximately 700 responses so far, said Kristan Pritz, director of open space and trails. Broomfield officials are hoping for at least 300 more community members to participate by the time the survey closes on Saturday. 

The master plan was established in 2005 and refreshing the plan is meant to inform the next phase of open space, parks, recreation and trails in Broomfield. 

“All of the comments that we’ve gathered through focus groups, surveys, pop-up events – we’re going to take and look for key themes about what the community’s vision is for open space, parks, recreation and trails for the next 20 years,” Pritz said. 

The main goals of the master plan include creating connected public spaces, maintaining sound stewardship of open lands, developing a proactive approach to meeting future needs, ensuring equitable distribution and establishing a strong community image and identity. 

Community members can complete a short survey about the master plan online at Broomfield Voice, with survey options in Spanish, Vietnamese, Chinese, Hmong and English.
