Lazy Glen Open Space master plan nears completion

The public still has a chance to weigh in on the future of Pitkin County’s newest open space property. The final open house on the Lazy Glen property was held last week, but Lindsey Utter, senior environmental planner for the county, encourages people to give input online for the county’s newest acquisition of public land.

“If they like what they are seeing or want to see things managed differently in the future those are the things we need to hear about now,” said Utter.

The county acquired the 73-acre Lazy Glen Open Space for $2.7 million. A draft master plan for the use of the property includes recreation opportunities including fishing in the Roaring Fork River, pedestrian access to the Rio Grande from the Lazy Glen subdivision, agricultural use and wildlife preservation.
