Let's Talk About The Planning!

The 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.

C'mon, You Know You Want To Talk To Us!



The Trails Plan has already been kickoff by the Town Council and Town staff at the July 21, 2022, Town Council meeting. A Project Management Strategy was provided to the Town at that meeting. It is available to review on the website here.

Next Steps!


The Town is creating a stakeholder group made of community members. The role of the stakeholder group is to provide valuable input into the planning process and review various elements of the draft plan.
