The Town of Parker purchased 90 acres of land adjacent to the Salisbury Equestrian Park and Sports Complex in the Cherry Creek Corridor at 11920 Motsenbocker Road (View Map) and will be creating a master plan for how this acreage will be used. The plan is on track to be completed towards the end of 2014. Based on the costs for each phase and the prioritization of town-wide capital projects, a timeline will be developed for park construction.
Public Process to Hear Your Ideas & Opinions
Although the new park space has a few limitations, including floodplain and endangered species habitat, this 90-acre site represents a tremendous opportunity to create a special destination for Parker residents. There has been a robust public process for this master plan. The process began with an online survey taken by over 800 Parker residents, followed by a public open house on June 30 to view three initial concepts for the proposed park. Over 150 Parker residents and their children attended the open house. From this input, and working with a Technical Advisory Committee to determine feasibility, a preferred concept was developed and presented at a second public open house on August 20. Over 90 people attended this open house to share their thoughts about the preferred concept. We are grateful for the overwhelming and wonderful involvement of the more than 1,100 Parker residents, children, technical experts and community leaders that participated in this public process.
The preferred concept and other supporting materials presented at the August 20 open house are available below. The preferred plan will continue to undergo modifications and adjustments based on feedback from the community and the Technical Advisory Committee. The plan for the future Salisbury Park North will be presented at Town Council in September. The plan will then be broken into projected costs and construction phases before being brought before Town Council for final approval.
