ABOUT THE PROJECT
What is a Framework Plan?
Broadwater County's long term goal for the Silos Recreation Area is to redevelop the Area to: improve/expand recreational opportunities; improve/expand visitor services; improve visitor experience; balance conservation with recreation use and management; improve long term management, and; improve long term financial sustainability.
To help achieve this long term goal a multi-step planning process is necessary.
The first step in this process is the development of a Framework Plan. The Framework Plan will propose a vision and recommend a range of potential development program alternatives for the long term phased redevelopment and management of the Silos Recreation Area. This planning process will identify public needs and preferences and marshal input from stakeholders and agencies to develop a consensus driven Plan.
The next step is the development of a Bureau of Reclamation (BOR) Recreation Master Plan and Environmental Assessment(EA) for the Silos Recreation Area. The BOR Recreation Master Plan will be developed in compliance with the Canyon Ferry Resource Management Plan (RMP). The Framework Plan will be the foundation document for the Master Plan process.
Future steps will include funding and implementation of a long term phased recreation based redevelopment of the Silos Recreation Area.
