[ARCHIVED] Sayre Park Master Plan Community Meeting on May 30

Sayre Park Sign

The City of Glenwood Springs Parks and Recreation Department has recently launched the “Sayre Park Master Plan” effort to evaluate potential Sayre Park improvements to meet current demands as well as anticipate the future needs of the community.

A comprehensive review of Sayre Park was one of the action recommendations of the 2016 Parks and Recreation Master Plan Update. 7.6-acre Sayre Park is one of the City’s oldest public spaces and is popular for its multi-use options and spacious gathering and special event areas. Zehren and Associates, a Landscape Architecture firm from Avon, Colorado has been hired to work with the community and staff to gather park user information and opinions about current and future needs, analyze the physical constraints and opportunities at the park and evaluate compliance with sport-specific, safety, and accessibility standards.

Community Input Opportunities and Project Schedule

The project’s Community Outreach kicked-off with park visits and user interviews in English and Spanish and talking with residential, business, church, school and health-care neighbors, major event hosts, and sport-league organizers. The next step in the process is to invite the public to two Community Open House public input meetings to review scenarios for improvements and provide comment on those options and ideas. 

All are welcome and encouraged to attend. Refreshments will be provided along with giveaway items.

Community Meeting #1: Thursday, May 30, 2019 - 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. 

Glenwood Springs Community Center

Meeting Agenda: Based on analysis and input to date, 3 scenarios for potential improvements will be presented. The Open-House meeting format will enable community members to walk around the meeting room and review each scenario up-close and provide general or specific comments.

Community Survey

An on-line survey opportunity, in English and Spanish, will be released to the Community following Meeting #1 on June 3 and close on June 17. The link to the survey will be sent from this site.

Community Meeting #2: Thursday, July 11, 2019 - 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. 

Glenwood Springs Community Center

Meeting Agenda: Based on input from the May 30 meeting and information gathered from the survey, Zehren will present a potential "Preferred Scenario" for community review.

The final step will be to present the Community’s “Preferred Scenario” and estimated cost to implement the preferred scenario to City Council.
