6A - 2003-2008 CIP Tributary Greenways~ Tributar Y Greenwa s y . ~ • GREENWAYS 2003 - 2008 CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS PROGRAM OVERVIEW The 2003 Greenways Capital Improvements Program (CIP) budget is $450,000. The Greenways CIP has been developed within the context of, and is consistent with, the Boulder Valley Comprehensive Plan (BVCP), the Transporfation Master Plan (TMP), fhe Comprehensive Drainage Utility Master Plan (CDUMP), and the Greenways Master Plan. The city of Boulder Greenways System is comprised of a series of corridors along riparian areas including Boulder Creek and 6 designated tributaries, which provide an opportunity to integrate multiple objectives, including habitat protection, water quality enhancement, storm drainage and floodplain management, alternative transportation routes for pedestrians and bicyclists, recreation and cultural resources. In order to maximize the overlap of objectives and to coordinate projects along the Greenways, identification of projects for the 2003-2008 Greenways CIP was done as a team effort, combining input from Public Works (Utilities and Transportation groups), Parks and Recreation, Water Quality and Environmental Services, and Open Space/Real Estate. Transportation and flood utility projects were identified from the Transportation Master Plan, the Comprehensive Drainage Utility Master Plan, and intra-departmental meetings to determine project priorities and timing. Environmental projects were identified during the Master Plan update process • and were prioritized based on recent environmental studies, the overlap with other projects, and the feasibility and effectiveness of the project in meeting environmental goals. Maintenance of the Greenways system was reviewed as part of the Master Plan update process. To address the identified deficiencies in maintenance and weed control, the 2002-2007 Greenways CIP specified $150,000 to be used for maintenance each year. This allocation was continued in t6e 2003-2008 CIP. POLICY ISSUES All projects in the 2003-2008 CIP will go through the CEAP process either as part of a bigger Flood or Transportation project or as a separate project as indicated on the project status reports. HIGHLIGHTS Highlights of Greenways projects included in the 2003 CIP are: • The Iris Avenue Underpass at Elmer's Two-Mile Creek involves the construction of an underpass to increase flood capacity and improve access for pedestrians and bicyclists. This project is being coordinated with the Parks Department in conjunction with the development of Elmer's Two-Mile Park and with the Transportation Division. • The Fourmile Improvements from Pleasantview Soccer Fields to 28~h Street includes improvements to the creek, environmental restoration and water quality best management practices. This project is being done in conjunction with flood improvements along Fourmile Canyon Creek. This work will be coordinated with the Stormwater and Flood Management Utility and Open Space Department. • The Fourmile project from Broadway to 19~h Street includes a trail connection, • improvements to the creek, environmental restaration and water quality best management practices. This project is being done in conjunction with flood improvements along 1 Fourmile Canyon Creek. This work will be coordinated with the Stormwater and Flood • Management Utility and Parks and Recreation Department. • Maintenance concerns and weed control have been identified as a line item in the Greenways budget, with salaries associated with this effort shown as a separate line item. • The administration of the Greenways Program and Miscellaneous projects are shown as line items in the budget. FINANCING Greenways projects are funded from the Transportation Fund, Stormwater and Flood Management Utility Fund, and the Lottery Fund. Existing CIP expenditures are estimated at $450,000 per year for the next six years. Annual funding distribution for the Greenways Program for 2003-2008 is as follows: Transportation - $150,000 Flood Utility - $150,000 LotteryFund - $150,000 RELATIONSHIP TO OP~RATING BUDGET The Greenways corridors are currently maintained by several work groups within the city, as well as outside organizations. Tasks are divided up by geographical location as well as by function. The responsibility of each work group is described below: • Boulder County Parks and Open Space maintains the Boulder Creek path from the mouth • of Boulder Canyon to Fourmile Canyon. • The Parks Department maintenance staff is responsible for maintenance of Greenways that traverse a city park, as well as the Boulder Creek Path from Eben Fine Park to 55`n Street. • Street Maintenance is responsible for snow removal and general path maintenance (debris removal and sweeping) along all of the Greenways paths, except those portions of path maintained by the Parks Department. • The Open Space and Mountain Parks Department is responsible for maintenance of natural, environmentally sensitive, or revegetated areas on open space land and easements. Currently this includes portions of Boulder Creek east of 38`~' Street and Arapahoe Avenue and portions of South Boulder Creek from KOA Lake to Marshall Road. • Flood Utility Maintenance is responsible for maintaining the flood carrying capacity of all of the Greenways channels, which primarily involves removing tree limbs and downed trees from obstructing the flow in the channels, removal of channel sediment, and bank stabilization. • Urban Drainage and Flood Control District (UDFCD) performs maintenance on sections of Boulder Creek and all tributaries included in the Greenways Program. • City Forestry, University of Colorado (CU), ditch companies, and Xcel Energy are also involved in maintenance along the Greenways. • 2 Department PW/ Tributary Greenways ~ ~ Funding source Tributary Greenways Map-Number Project Name 62 Wonderland Creek Foothills to Diagonal 88 Fourmile Broadway to 19th Street 64 Iris Avenue Underpass 12 Fourmile Improvements Pleasantview to 28th • • 3 City of Boulder Captial Improvement Projects, 2003 - 2008 PW/ Tributary Greenways i a°c ~~ ~~a % • ~ ~ 12 62 ~ 4 ~ w..~ • Legend Year of ProJect ~ Funded Priorto 2003, on9oing work • 2003 2004 - 2008 ~ Funded P~ior to 20U3, angaing work ~ 2003 = 2004-2008 4 2003-2008 CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS PROGRAM ~ Tributary Greenways Iz-~ui-oz $ Prior to 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 Comments 2003 Projected Projected Projected Projected Projected Projected Existing Facility - Rehab / Repair / Deficiency Correction Fou~mile Lnprovements Pleasantview to 28th 0 45,000 95,000 0 0 - 0 0 funding ceduced to mote accura[ely accoun[ for progam administration costs E~sting Facility - Rehab / Repair / Deficiency Conection Total: 0 45,000 95,000 0 0 0 0 New Construction - Growth Related Facility / Additions Foumtile Broadway to 19th Street 0 25,000 ]00,000 195,000 0 0 0 Project added ro coordina[e with other city pmjec[s New Construction - Growth Related Facility / Additions Total: 0 25,000 100,000 195,000 0 0 0 New Construction - Not Growth Related Iris Avenue Undelpass 191,000 125,000 0 0 0 0 0 Wondedand Creek Foothills to Diagonat 0 0 0 0 195,000 195,000 195,000 funding delayed [wo yeaxs in order ro fund Fouanile Broadway to 19ih New Construction - Not Growth Related Total: 191,000 125,000 0 0 195,000 195,000 195,000 On-Going Projects Miscellaneous - Greenways Opemting 0 105,000 105,000 105,000 . t05,000 105,000 105,000 MaintenanceandWcedConVOi 0 15Q000 ]50,000 15Q000 ]50,000 ISQ000 I50,000 On-Going Projects Total: 0 255,000 255,000 255,000 255,000 255,000 255,000 • Grand Total: 191,000 450,000 450,000 450,000 450,000 450,000 450,000 5 v 2003-2008 CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS PROGRAM _ . _ ,_._... .._ , . ,._._ ..,. ___._.._ . . __.___.. _.. . _.__._.._......
