Rocky Mountain Greenway Item Removed from Tuesday’s Broomfield City Council Agenda

October 9, 2018

Broomfield staff has requested that the Rocky Mountain Greenway item be removed from tonight’s Broomfield City Council meeting.

The agenda item had called for council to vote on authorization of implementation of a proposed soil sampling plan and to allow for testing on the southwest corner the Great Western Open Space, which is owned Broomfield.

The Rocky Mountain Greenway is an approximately 100-mile trail proposed to connect the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge, Two Ponds National Wildlife Refuge, Rocky Flats National Wildlife Refuge and Rocky Mountain National Park.

Staff has determined that clarification is needed on the Sampling Analysis Plan before it is presented to council, according to city memo.

Jefferson County is coordinating the Federal Lands Access Program, or FLAP, Grant for the next phase of the Greenway. Grant partners include Jefferson, Broomfield, Westminster, Arvada, the City of Boulder and Boulder County.

The other municipalities are ready to proceed with the testing upon approval by Broomfield.
