The Open Space and Trails Advisory Committee (OSTAC) was established to advise the city council on amendments to the open space element of the master plan. OSTAC is charged with the responsibility of making recommendations to the city council regarding the following:
The acquisition of open space parcels
The location, type, and timing of trail segments and crossings
A long-range plan for open space use and management
Mission Statement The mission of the Open Space and Trails Department is to acquire, steward, and enhance open space as well as to create a comprehensive trail system that allows for the enjoyment of the outdoors and promotes a healthy environment for people, nature, and community. Land Acknowledgement We acknowledge that the land upon which we reside is the ancestral home of the Arapaho, Cheyenne, and Ute peoples. We further recognize that their connection to this place, both today and for countless generations, stewards the natural and cultural resources that we value so deeply. By acknowledging this connection, we strive to learn from, honor and respect these indigenous ties in our open space landscapes.
