    Mission Statement
    The mission of the Open Space and Trails Department is to acquire open space and create a comprehensive trail system that allows for the enjoyment of the outdoors and promotes a healthy environment for people, nature, and community.
    Land Acknowledgement
    We acknowledge that the land upon which we reside is the ancestral home of the Arapaho, Cheyenne, and Ute peoples. We further recognize that their connection to this place, both today and for countless generations, stewards the natural and cultural resources that we value so deeply. By acknowledging this connection, we strive to learn from, honor and respect these indigenous ties in our open space landscapes.
