2022 Trails Plan
The Town is creating a Trails Plan in 2022! It’s one of the recommendations from the 2022 Comprehensive Plan. We want you to be a part of the process. Below is some information to help you understand the Trails Plan, how you can get involved, and the process of getting it adopted.
The Trails Plan demonstrates the Town’s commitment to delivering multi-use trails in the Parachute community. At the end of the project, the Trails Plan will provide a list of potential trail projects, including a prioritized list of projects, who is responsible for specific action steps, a list of local, state, and federal agencies who should be involved, identification of properties or easements needed to install trail segments, and the level of difficulty to implement.
Town Manager Updates
Most weeks, the Town Manager will send the Town Council an Info Update Memorandum. These memos briefly cover upcoming Town events, regional news, upcoming issues, and Town occurrences from the previous week. They are brief, informal, and prone to typos, but they are a good source of Town news. We will aim to publish the latest info update here within one week.
