OPEN SPACE BOARD ADOPTS PLAN The Open Space and Trails Board voted to adopt an updated management plan for Glassier Open Space on Dec. 8. The plan will also be presented to Eagle County commissioners at a later date. A link to the adopted plan is provided above.
The 2020 plan is an update to the original management plan for Glassier Open Space, adopted in 2015. Below is a summary of actions proposed in the new plan.
MANAGEMENT ACTION SUMMARY
SOME HISTORY This open space is a 282-acre parcel located in the mid-Roaring Fork Valley, in Eagle County. Two land purchases, in 2013 and 2014, created the open space, involving a partnership of Pitkin County Open Space and Trails, Eagle County, Great Outdoors Colorado, the Town of Basalt, and the Mid-Valley Trails Committee.
The first management plan for Glassier Open Space was adopted in 2015. Since then, actions have included construction of bike/hike and equestrian/hike trails to access trails on the Crown, the leasing of agricultural areas, stabilization of an historic home on the property and the construction of an off-site trailhead parking area.
