The Valmont City Pazk site (132 acres) was purchased to provide quality, functional space to meet cuaent and future city wide parks and recreation needs. Many of these recreational needs will utilize the space imensively, generating significant day and evening use, noise, and uaffic, and aze not suitable for developmem on other eaasting city park sites Money for this city park site was provided by the citizens through the 1995 ballot issues with the understanding that it would be used to purchase property suitable for intensive recrearional uses 2. Short Term Development Fundin~ and Timin¢: $4 1 million is available at this time for infrastructure and phase 1 general park developmern which is anticipated to occur on the property south of Valmont within the next 3 years. Rough estimates were created at the time of the property purchase which identified $500,000. for in&astructure development (city water, sewer, and storm drainage annexation assessments, roadway requirements, etc) and $3,600,000 for general park development based on an estimate of $150,000 per acre for 24 acres General park development may mclude: trails, open non programmed grass azeas, landscaping, picmc azeas, etc An additional $1 million is available at this tune to relocate and redevelop portions of the existing Pazks Operarions facilities and other city functions, as needed, in conjunction with the proposed development of the new city park site. Any portions of the $1 million that is not used for Pazk V Operation facility or other city services relocations will be used for overall Valmont City Pazk improvementa ~~ 3. T ong Term Development F~nding and TiminQ• No specific timmg schedule or futtds have been designated for the long term development of the total pazksrte A large pomon of the park will remain undeveloped untal funding is available It is anticipated that all of the more intensive use facilities may be provided through public or private partnerships. The approved Conceptual Master Plan for the pazksite will cleazly designate what proposed pazk development will occur for Phase 1 and what proposed pazk development and recreahon faciliries will not be provided without the assistance of public or private partnerships or the procuremern of addiuonal c~ty funding Note The Parks and Recreauon Department will give consideration and pnonty to the completion and refurb~shment of existing pazks and recreation faciliries pnor to development of the Valmont Ciry Pazk beyond Phase 1, unless the proposed facility can be provided through public or pnvate partnerships, is spec~fically suitable for development at t}us site, and/or provides a park and recreation service that is unique within the overall system 4. Park Name The parksite will be referred to as the Valmont City Pazk Site unt~l an official name is selected 5. Park Prooertv , The Valmont City Pazk currently mcludes the following property ~~ 104 acres of recently purchased properry north and south of Vaimont Drive ~ 28 10 acres of city owned property compnsed of the east portion of the City Yazds. Please note. 1 During the acquisihon process the Board reviewed proposals which idernified 13 acres of City Yazd Properry to be included in the ovecall park developmern plan That acreage has been increased to include the secttons of Goose Creek Channel wluch abut the City Yards and old Peari street as well as an abandoned railroad right of way along the north boundary of the City Yazd ProPerty 2 It is anticipated that the Ecocycle facility will be relocated within appro~rimately 5 yeazs The property currently occupied by Ecocycle will be included in the pazk developmern plans 3 Roughly 4 to 6 acres of the overall park site may be sold or leased for other uses which might comQliment the design of the park Res~dential development, specifically affordable housing, will be considered for ttus property Any land sale of park property would require negohahon of an acceptable sales pnce The park development plan also will consider sale or lease of up to 5 acres for neighborhood commerc~al development 6. Moentain Ocean Site: A one acre pazcel, currendy owned by Mountain Ocean, is not part of the current park planning, however it may be considered in the future. The Park Master Plan will address the compatibility of the Mountavi Ocean properry to the park and shall mclude 2 ~ ~ recommendauons for the cuaent and future interface with the Mountain Ocean property ~ 7. Area III Plannin~ Gonsiderationa• The Area III pazksite will not be developed with urban recreational uses for the foreseeable future The planning efforts for the Valmont Site will not be based on any specific recreational development commitments for the Area III srte 8. Pearl Parkwar The Transportation Department will be planning and constructing the extension of Pearl Pazkway at some point in the future As a major city transportarion corridor, it is anticipated that the funding for this roadway will be provided by Transportauon Department funds and not become an assessment in association with the park development The Board will be notified of any changes to this understanding T}us extension will be considered when designing the park 9. Wonderland hannel on ~ction• The Public Works Department will be planning and constructing the extension of Wonderland Channel through the pazksite south of Valmont, potenhally witlvn the next year The Parks and Recreation Departme~lt will pazUcipate in the planning process to confirm that the channel complunents the development goals of the pazk and integrates well with the proposed park landscape See Planning Goals 10. Build off Previo ~c An Iy i and ~ht:~ I py~ The Pazks and Recreation Needs f y Assessment, 1996 Pazks and Recreation Citizen Survey, and overall program and faci]ity recommendations completed for the recently-adopted Pazks and Recreation Master Plan have identified key parks and recreation trends and the publids desires for new pazks and recreation programs and facilities. This information provides the starting point for developing a program plan and concept pian for the Valmont City Park. The Valmont City Pazk Master Plan is a long term plan. The current information is not definihve and will become outdated by the time much of the pazk is developed The Master Site Plan for the park will be designed to provide broad based recommendations for site development with the understanding that detailed needs assessments will be provided prior to detailed planning and development of intensive use recreauonal faciliries 11 Public inout for the Plannin~Process• Vatious methods will be used to obtain the public input as efficiently and effectively as poss~bie. Input will be sought from the special interest groups, user groups, neighbors, and the community at lazge. Staff seeks to build a planning process that will provide the desired recreatron facilities wlule balancing competing goals and long terrn operational requirements 12 Inpat from Citv D~partmentQ City and county departments, through the staffreview group (SRG) will provide input m the planning process for the Valmont City Pazk site during the Major Site Review Process Design cons~derations and potenhal impacts will be topics for input The formal development review committee (DRC) process will be utilized for interdepartmental V ~a review 13. Development Anprov~s. Approvals by the Pazks and Recreation Advisory Board, Planning Boazd, and City Council will be required for the Valmont City Park site development Additionally any changes to the Boulder Valley Comprehensive Plan associated with the new development will be reviewed and approved by Boulder County Development approvals mclude Area IIB to IIA changes/ Boulder Valley Comprehensive Plan land use changes, rezoning, subdivision and lot line adjustments, annexation, dedications, major site review steps 1,2,3, and the community and environmental assessment process (CEAP) f ~ 1. Provide a Bala~ce of ('~eneral Park Aevelopmen~ Natural and Cultural Resources. and Intensive Recreational Uses. The VaUnont City Pazk site will provide space for general non programmed pazk uses (open grass play azeas, walks, uails, etc ) as well as space for intensive, high-use park and recreation faciliries such as lighted playfields, one or more lazge recreation stiuctures, lazge group gathering and picnicking azeas, muki-use trail systems, mcluding adequate parkuig for all facilities Existing site natural and cultural resources of value will be preserved and mcorporated into the park development plan to compliment the proposed recreational uses and the overall pazk environment The pazk site is located adjacent to mdustrial land uses and major uansportation artenals and is well suited for the anticipated significant amounts of traffic both dunng the week and on week-ends, days and evenings f~ 4~ ~ 2. The park develonment plan will: - address documented public requests for recreational facilities and programs based on the approved Parks and Recreation Master Plan, the 1996 Pazks and Recreation Citizen Survey, staff observations, analysis of e~sting available facilities, and current public input - provide recreational acrivities to serve a variety of interests including but not limited to competitive programmed team sports, non programmed recreational uses, fimess and health use, and multi purpose trail uses - provide community benefits for social, cultural, and educational use - provide linear and non linear spaces for contemplative use and spuitual renewal - provide recreational activities for the full diversity of people in the city with specific emphasis on provisions for youth, teens, and families - provide adequate flexibility for multi-use of faciliUes - provide adequate flexibility to respond to future uends in recreahonal need - provide aesthetic amenihes for the urban environment and a gracious gateway for the eastern edge of the City - be compahble with surrounding land uses - seek to preserve the pazk property's e~risting natural and h:stonc features such as the ditches and mature plant material, wildlife habitat, the small hill south of ~ Valmont, small farm buildings, and the views r• - provide adequate flexibility to respond to £uture opportumties for development ~ through cooperarive ventures with public or private entities - seek to cluster parldng faciliries for shared use and to provide adequate landscape buffers 3 The pazk development will respond to the City of Boulder Transportation Master Pian goals and requuements including - provide connecrions to all existing and proposed off site pedestnan and bike trails - provide a pnmazy access point to pazk from Pearl Parkway - provide a roadway system withm the pazk wtuch provides safe and adequate access to and from the pazk and connects pazk facilities witlun the pazk _ max;m,~e opporturut~es for use of altemate transportation modes and convement aitemauves (pedestnan, bicycle, uansit )to vehicle use that can m;nim;~e new auto trips generated, Note The Pazks and Recreation Staffwill work v~nth the Transportation staffto deteimine the best roadway system for the site wluch m;nim;~es impacts to the vanous park users. 4. The park development will be planned to maximize park and recrearion uses of the parksite in con~unchon with the Public Works Depaztment design and construction of Wonderland Channel through the pazk property south of Valmont.
