The City of Brighton Parks and Open Space division and consultant Norris Design will host a neighborhood public input meeting from 6-8 p.m. May 29 regarding Ken Mitchell Park and Open Space. The meeting will provide an opportunity for the community to provide input for the development of a new master plan for the Open Space area. The meeting will be held at City Hall, 500 S. 4th Ave.
Ken Mitchell Park and Open Space is a 648-acre contiguous area that currently includes Ken Mitchell Park, water storage lakes, active gravel mining, trails and wildlife habitat. The goal of the project and the master plan update is to provide a strong vision and plan to move forward for short and long-term improvements to the area. The improvements will include both active and passive park uses while restoring and protecting wildlife habitat along the South Platte River, the lake banks, and in wetland areas.
For more information, please contact Parks and Recreation Assistant Director Mark Heidt at 303-655-2170or firstname.lastname@example.org
A second meeting will be held from 6-8 p.m. June 26 at City Hall to provide an update following the initial community meeting.
