From the Montrose Daily Press (Kati O’Hare):
At a “vision workshop” from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Monday at the Montrose Pavilion, citizens can help direct the future of 10 miles of river corridor through the city of Montrose. Options include boat ramps, a water park, a dog park, trails, fishing access and commercial development.
The team has recorded everything from habitat and bank conditions to land use and water quality. They also have sketched possible public amenities, identified potential land acquisitions and trail connectivity, and have outlined a public process to move forward. But the community’s wants and needs are a critical part of the process, said Ann Abel Christensen of DHM Design…
The consulting team has broken the 10-mile corridor into 18 sections, each of which will be addressed separately. Maps and details of each section will be displayed at Monday’s meeting, as will conceptual drawings for community input.
