Steamboat 2A Trails Committee to host open house Tuesday
November 23, 2017
The city of Steamboat Springs 2A Trails Committee will host a project open house from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 28 at Centennial Hall, 124 10th St. in partnership with the Trail Maintenance Endowment Fund. U.S. Forest Service and endowment fund staff will be in attendance.
The informational event will provide updates on completed 2A-funded trail projects, 2A-funded trail construction plans for 2018, the Parks, Recreation, Open Space, Trails and River Master Plan update and the upcoming Forest Service NEPA planning process, which will determine new trail opportunities in the Mad Creek, Rocky Peak and Rabbit Ears Pass areas.
In November 2013, the voters of Steamboat Springs approved a portion of the municipal accommodations tax be used to develop trails. Through the next 10 years,
$5.1 million are planned to be invested in trail infrastructure across Steamboat. A committee made up of Steamboat residents is prioritizing the expenditures of this investment.
