MANAGEMENT PLAN SET FOR DECEMBER ADOPTION A management plan for Glassier Open Space will be presented to the Open Space and Trails Board for possible adoption on Dec. 8. It will also be presented to Eagle County commissioners at a later date. A public comment period on the draft plan (see the link above) closed Nov. 6. A link to the Open Space Board's Dec. 8 meeting materials, including the latest version of the plan, will be provided here once it is available.
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.
