Subject: Joint Study Session with Open Space Board of Trustees: Proposed Focus Areas

for the Open Space and Mountain Parks Master Plan
Tagged Passions:parks

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY On Tuesday, June 12, City Council and the Open Space Board of Trustees (OSBT) will meet from 6 to 8 p.m. in a joint study session to discuss the following focus areas that have been proposed to support the development of the Open Space and Mountain Parks (OSMP) Master Plan:

Tagged Passions:council, parks, development, and Development

- Ecosystem Health - Resilience to Environmental Change - Enjoyment and Recreation Management - Community Connections and Inclusion - Financial Sustainability

The agenda, including questions for Council and OSBT, is included in Attachment A. The purpose of the study session is to discuss and confirm focus areas prior to staff s request for formal approval by the OSBT and City Council. Staff also seeks feedback from OSBT and Council on the related topics under each focus area to inform strategy development later in the planning process. Once approved, final focus areas will serve as a foundation for the OSMP Master Plan and will provide central focus for OSMP management over the next five to 10 years, with an eye to the next 50. To help manage time during this two-hour study session, staff requests that OSBT and Council members fill out this 2-minute questionnaire by Sunday, June 10 at noon: http://bit.ly/osmpstudysession

BACKGROUND What is a Focus Area ? Focus areas are systemwide themes that answer the question: What is it time to focus on now? Focus areas emerged from community feedback, as well as from OSMP purposes in the City Charter, findings in available reports, and staff expertise. Focus areas do not exclude or suggest discontinuing ongoing core services work to maintain the OSMP system. They do; however, emphasize ongoing and important work to fulfill OSMP purposes in the City Charter and will help OSMP and the community concentrate on key issues and opportunities. While focus areas will not encompass the entire breadth of OSMP s work over the next five to 10 years, they will play a significant role in directing where department investment and capacities are placed. What makes a good focus area? Based on a literature review by Design Workshop, the consultants supporting the Master Plan process, the following principles apply to creating good focus areas. Focus areas should be: Succinct and memorable (five words or fewer); Not too broad/not too specific; Straightforward and understandable without any jargon or metrics; Informed by public as well as staff and leadership perspectives; Clear about what will be concentrated on over the next five to 10 years, without excluding other things such as previously existing and ongoing work efforts; High level without getting into details such as specific actions or policies. How will related topics help advance Master Plan strategies? The related topics within each proposed focus area also emerged from both community feedback and staff experience and expertise. They reflect issues and opportunities that will be important to address within the Master Plan. Related topics will guide community discussions to develop and prioritize strategies in relation to each focus area. These topics begin to define the types of strategies that will support or advance each focus area. An example of how this plays out within existing OSMP policies is included in Attachment B. They also help define what additional information may be needed to support strategy development. For example, the table of active monitoring projects in Attachment C describes additional information that may become relevant later in the Master Plan process. In addition, initial findings from the 2016-2017 OSMP Visitation Study (available online here) were also recently released. Those findings and the forthcoming full reports that will accompany them will also support future strategy development.

PUBLIC COMMENT AND PROCESS To date, OSMP staff have conducted two windows of community engagement opportunities to develop and help confirm focus areas for the forthcoming OSMP Master Plan. Staff and consultants worked closely with the OSMP Master Plan Process Committee to design, implement and evaluate the specific approach to each engagement window. Members of that committee include Curt Brown (OSBT), Tom Isaacson (OSBT), Aaron Brockett (City Council) and Mary Young (City Council). The OSMP Master Plan is also a pilot project for implementing the city s new Engagement Strategic Framework.

First Public Engagement Window During the first window of public engagement (January 22 through March 30, 2018), city staff released a System Overview Report to set the stage for community conversations and focus area development. Staff then engaged with a diverse cross-section of the community to understand broad values, hopes and concerns for the future of OSMP. With a focus on diversity and inclusion, staff connected with approximately 2,000 people around the city at such places as the Latino Chamber of Commerce, the Boulder Public Library, the Center for People with Disabilities, the Boulder County Nature Association Annual Ecosymposium, Boulder Housing Partners housing communities, and at trailheads and other OSMP events, classes and programs. This broad outreach resulted in approximately 1,500 written responses. As described more fully in the First Public Engagement Window Summary, this early input informed the development of five proposed focus areas to guide OSMP management over the next five to 10 years. Background reports and staff expertise also informed the development of these proposed focus areas. Related topics within each proposed focus area were also informed by community input, background reports and staff expertise.

Second Public Engagement Window During the second window of engagement (May 7 through May 20, 2018), the public was asked to help check staff s analysis and interpretation of public comments and the resulting proposed focus areas and related topics that emerged. An online questionnaire was the central mechanism for the public to submit this feedback.

As described in Attachment D, staff received 454 responses to the online questionnaire, three emails to the Master Plan team and three responses on social media.
Tagged Passions:social media law

ANALYSIS Roughly 60 percent of respondents to the questionnaire support all five focus areas. An additional 25 percent are neutral. In addition, respondents were asked to evaluate each focus area according to how important it is for the future of OSMP and how well OSMP is currently addressing that focus area. These results demonstrate even greater support for the individual focus areas. For example, respondents perceive each to be important, fairly important or very important according to the following percentages:

Enjoyment and Recreation Management: 95 percent Financial Sustainability: 91 percent Ecosystem Health: 87 percent Resilience to Environmental Change: 83 percent Community Connections and Inclusion: 74 percent In addition, respondents demonstrated a high degree of interest in related topics across all five focus areas, lending further validation to the focus areas. About one third of respondents also offered open-ended comments in answer to whether they would like to see any refinements or additions to the focus areas or related topics. Of these responses, many reflected a desire to see more or less emphasis placed on a particular focus area or related topic. Others expressed a desire to see greater detail which will be provided later in the master planning process or during implementation. Fewer than 20 comments roughly 4 percent of all online responses submitted in the second window included suggestions for distinctly new or refined focus areas or topics.

However, despite the small number of these comments, staff appreciates the quality of the suggestions and have recommended potential refinements to related topics for OSBT and City Council during upcoming discussions and decision-making.

Attachment D outlines the potential refinements suggested to the related topics for OSBT and Council to consider at the joint study session. The proposed focus areas, supporting value statements and related topics, including these proposed refinements, are: Ecosystem Health: Using the best available science, we protect healthy ecosystems and mend those we have impaired. Related Topics: Continuing to acquire and safeguard large habitat blocks and corridors; protecting biodiversity; improving soil health; protecting natural sounds and night skies; restoring riparian areas; protecting wetlands; preserving floodplains; integrating sustainable agricultural practices and resource protection; and researching and monitoring ecological health. Resilience to Environmental Change: By helping nature endure and thrive, we ourselves endure and thrive. Related Topics: Investigating shifts in the distribution of plant and animal species; planning for declining water availability; preparing for pressures from energy development; supporting the agricultural community in a time of environmental and social change; mitigating fire and flood risks; exploring carbon sequestration; evolving infrastructure needs; responding to social and behavioral changes as the environment changes; understanding ecosystem services; and acquiring additional properties to support resilience. Enjoyment and Recreation Management: We are united by our enjoyment of nature and our obligation to protect it. Related Topics: Supporting quality recreation opportunities in nature; exploring a framework for managing visitor use and visitation growth; addressing recreational impacts on natural areas health; maintaining and improving trails and facilities; assessing appropriateness of new or potential passive recreation activities; addressing parking and transportation needs; facilitating accessibility for all abilities; managing dog use and waste; ensuring visitor safety; and acquiring land for passive recreation opportunities.

Examples: Focus Area Topic Strategy (within existing OSMP policies)

Tagged Passions:strategic

Focus areas are broad systemwide themes that answer the question: What is time to focus on now? They are also further described by a set of related topics that begin to define the types of strategies that will support or advance each focus area. The following examples illustrate how this structure plays out within existing OSMP policies. The examples do not presume which strategies will emerge for the OSMP Master Plan itself. Rather they help demonstrate the benefits of describing focus area and related topics at this early stage of the planning process. Once focus areas are approved, related topics will guide community conversations to develop and refine strategies for the forthcoming Master Plan.

Example 1: Focus Area Community Connections and Inclusion Supporting Value Statement Together, we build a community of stewards and seek to find our place in open space. Related Topic Volunteering and community building Strategy (existing OSMP policy) Foster volunteerism as an important component of public involvement (Visitor Master Plan) Example 2: Focus Area Resilience to Environmental Change

OSMP Active Monitoring Projects as of 5/25/2018 The Master Plan Process Committee and OSBT asked OSMP to create a list of the active monitoring projects that produce data that could be used to look at change over time, in preparation for the joint board and council study session in June 2018. Below is a first draft of that list, and therefore may not be exhaustive (i.e., we may have missed some). Moreover, the list excludes many other datasets that are not repeatedly measured, such as inventories (e.g., asset management, scenic resources), spatial data and research projects, as well as documents, such as resource plans, reports and publications.

City of Boulder OSMP Master Plan: Second Public Engagement Window Summary 2

Introduction To kick off the first phase of developing the City of Boulder s Open Space and Mountain Parks (OSMP) Master Plan, city staff have conducted two initial windows of public engagement. Both opportunities have respectively helped develop and refine proposed focus areas or management themes to guide OSMP policy and direction over the next five to ten years. This document summarizes findings from the second engagement window (May 7-20, 2018) in light of feedback heard during the first engagement window. It also supports decision-making with the Open Space Board of Trustees (OSBT) and City Council as they help refine and approve focus areas through July 2018.

The proposed focus areas and supporting value statements that emerged from feedback in the first engagement window are as follows: Ecosystem Health Using the best available science, we protect healthy ecosystems and mend those we have impaired. Resilience to Environmental Change By helping nature endure and thrive, we ourselves endure and thrive. Enjoyment and Recreation Management We are united by our enjoyment of nature and our obligation to protect it.

Tagged Passions:council, parks, health, policy, recreation, and environment

Community Connections and Inclusion Together, we build a community of stewards and seek to find our place in open space.

Financial Sustainability Preserving our legacy land system requires preparing for the future.

Tagged Passions:sustainability and finance

Staff analysis and interpretation of comments received during the second engagement window resulted in several proposed refinements to the related topics under each of the five focus areas. The refinements are described below. However, on the whole, feedback from the second window largely validates findings from the first engagement window and strongly supports the proposed focus areas that emerged from the first round of robust community outreach and engagement.

How We Listened The OSMP Master Plan is a pilot project for the implementation of the City of Boulder s recently adopted Engagement Strategic Framework. As such, staff established clear windows of public engagement opportunities to clarify when and why staff would seek community input and how that input would be used. To develop, implement and evaluate the approach for the first two windows of engagement, city staff worked with the OSMP Master Plan Process Committee, made up of two City Council members (Aaron Brockett and Mary Young) and two members of OSBT (Curt Brown and Tom Isaacson). These first two engagement windows were designed together to inform the development and refinement of focus areas for the OSMP Master Plan.

City of Boulder OSMP Master Plan: Second Public Engagement Window Summary 3

During the first engagement window (January 22 March 30, 2018), staff implemented a broad, inclusive outreach strategy that reached 2,000 community members around the city in such places as the Latino Chamber of Commerce, the Boulder Public Library, the Center for People with Disabilities, the Boulder County Nature Association Annual Ecosymposium, Boulder Housing Partners housing communities, and at trailheads and other OSMP events, classes and programs. Staff sought to understand our community s values, hopes and concerns for the future of OSMP. This broad-based feedback was used to develop the five proposed focus areas described above, as well as a set of related topics that support and define each focus area. During the second window of engagement, members of the public were then asked to check staff s analysis and interpretation of the first 1,500 public comments, and to help answer the question: How well did we hear you? Two primary goals informed engagement:
Tagged Passions:strategic, events, housing, program, and library

Provide an opportunity for the public to review summary findings from first engagement window

Invite feedback on summary engagement findings and proposed focus areas

To that end, staff posted the summary engagement findings online on May 7, and distributed public announcements about the opportunity for review and feedback through multiple email lists, social media accounts, a press release and signs at twenty trailheads throughout the system. Simultaneously, staff opened an informal, online questionnaire (available May 7 through May 20) to gather feedback.

The questionnaire asked five core questions to help staff, OSBT and City Council understand: 1. Level of interest around the related topics for each focus area; 2. Level of agreement that these five focus areas are the right management themes to guide OSMP for the next 5 to 10 years; 3. Any suggested refinements or additions to the focus areas or related topics; 4. Perceptions of how well OSMP is currently addressing each focus area; and 5. Perceptions of how important each focus area is for the future of OSMP.

Who We Heard From A total of 454 community members submitted responses to the online questionnaire. All questionnaire responses are available online at this address: https://bouldercolorado.gov/links/fetch/39159. In addition, Appendix A includes the three emails sent to the Master Plan team and the three social media comments submitted during this engagement window.

Staff also provided optional demographic questions in the questionnaire to help decision makers understand who we heard from. The following findings highlight some of these demographics: 47 percent of respondents live in one of two subareas: North Boulder or South Boulder; 18 percent live outside the City of Boulder; ATTACHMENT D - SECOND PUBLIC ENGAGEMENT WINDOW SUMMARY

What We Heard Feedback submitted through the online questionnaire demonstrated overall support for the focus areas, with some suggestions about how to refine or add to the list of related topics that help describe each of the five focus areas.

For example, the following table illustrates that 60 percent of respondents agree or strongly agree that these focus areas are the right management themes to guide OSMP, with an additional 25 percent reporting neutrality.

Figure 1: Responses to the question, Taken as a whole, do you agree that these five focus areas are the right management themes for OSMP to focus on over the next five to 10 years? Beyond this overview question, respondents were asked to evaluate each focus area according to how important it is for the future of OSMP and how well they believe OSMP is currently addressing it. These results demonstrate even greater support for each focus area. For example, respondents perceive each to be important, fairly important or very important according to the following percentages: Enjoyment and Recreation Management: 95 percent Financial Sustainability: 91 percent Ecosystem Health: 87 percent Resilience to Environmental Change: 83 percent Community Connections and Inclusion: 74 percent ATTACHMENT D - SECOND PUBLIC ENGAGEMENT WINDOW SUMMARY

desire to see details that will be part of later stages in the master planning process or even during implementation.

Fewer than 20 comments roughly 4 percent of all online responses submitted in the second window included suggestions for distinctly new or refined focus areas or topics. However, despite the small number of these comments, staff appreciate the quality of the suggestions and have recommended potential refinements to related topics for OSBT and City Council during upcoming discussions and decision-making. The proposed refinements below also respond to sentiments in a number of comments that suggested some respondents did not see themselves in the focus areas or related topics. For example, some comments revealed that some respondents did not recognize that the Community Connections and Inclusion focus area was intended to reflect previous public comments from the first window about creating and enhancing connections with nature for all community members and visitors. Therefore, staff has suggested either additional topics or revisions to previously suggested topics to further improve understanding and alignment with all focus areas being proposed for OSBT and City Council consideration. How Feedback Will Be Used As noted by the Process Committee, both the first and second public engagement windows were designed to support each other, both leading to the development of proposed focus areas. For example, through a robust outreach and engagement process in the first engagement window, staff received three times as many comments in the first window as compared to the second. The committee also noted that the 454 responses submitted during the second window reflect a less diverse cross-section of the community as compared to responses in the first window and as compared to citywide demographics. However, understood together, both sets of feedback have informed the proposed focus areas. In addition, feedback in the second window largely validated and confirmed feedback heard in the first window. Therefore, all feedback received to date should be considered together during decision-making.

To that end, both sets of feedback have been shared with the Open Space Board of Trustees (OSBT) and City Council as background for a joint study session on Tuesday, June 12, 2018. The goal of the study session will be to discuss and confirm focus areas developed from public input prior to formal action by OSBT and City Council resulting in approval of final focus areas. Board and Council members will also be asked to provide feedback on the related topics under each focus area, to guide community conversations around strategy development later in the Master Plan process.

The following refinements have been presented to OSBT and Council for consideration:

Subsequently, staff will return to OSBT on July 11, requesting a formal recommendation that City Council approve the focus areas. On July 17, staff will then ask City Council to approve the focus areas for the OSMP Master Plan. No changes to the focus areas will be made after City Council approval.

Wagner, Deryn From: Mark Willuhn Sent: Tuesday, May 08, 2018 9:00 AM To: Wagner, Deryn Cc: Anacker, Brian Subject: Re:

Hi Deryn I just reviewed the survey results and the resulting 5 focus areas. Well done The five areas resonate well with me and hopefully the rest of the community. The one concern I have is the phrase carrying capacity in Focus Area 3. This term, particularly with Latin American governments (thanks to an author named Miguel Cifeuntes who developed a complex mathematical equation to get a magic number that never has been successfully implemented) has created all sorts of challenges. It seems that all governments want the magic number of how many people. I suggest changing the term carrying capacity to acceptable use levels or appropriate use levels or maybe sustainable use levels but sustainable can be a slippery slope. Perhaps you all have something better. Why not carrying capacity Use levels and impacts are not linearly related. Carrying capacity implies there is some magic number of visitation level. Carrying capacity incorrectly frames the use impact problem as a question How many is too many? and it should be framed What are the acceptable conditions? . It also needs to be framed in a number of environments biophysical, social, administrative and cultural. Last year I wrote a section on why carrying capacity frames visitor impacts incorrectly for a public use plan we did for the Panamanian government, so this stuff is relatively fresh in my mind. I have full confidence that you (OSMP) are using the phrase carrying capacity in this context because it communicates to the public the basic concept of visitor impact monitoring and mitigation and to some the deep anxieties about increasingly unacceptable levels of impact be it social too much crowding; biophysical plastic bags with dog waste; administrative not sufficient budget to maintain trails at increased visitation leves, cultural vandalism of sacred sits, etc. and the sustainability of resources. However, the term frames the issue incorrectly in my opinion (and many others) and should be eliminated from future documents.

Wagner, Deryn From: Caroline H Sent: Friday, May 18, 2018 1:08 PM To: OSMPmasterplan Subject: Survey

The survey is flawed, as it does not provide an option to answer Don't know or Unfamiliar with this aspect , or something similar. This causes respondents to randomly choose answers to questions only because an answer was required in order to submit, not because of a genuine, educated opinion on the question. This problem significantly limits conclusions that may be drawn from the survey results. It also would have been helpful to have a Comments section for each question.

I don't expect dogs to be using the Open Space on their own unless someone (human with dog) has received training and paid for an OS tag. If I indicate its a priority that feral dog packs should not be allowed on the open space, would that be treated the same as I think that owners who have completed the training sessions and bought a tag should be given more access to trails. Seems a very loaded (or lazy) question. There should at least be a question to the effect managing mountain bike use as if a dog or a mountain bike would be reading the survey.
