It's not too late to weigh in on Bluff Park's future

It’s not too late to let us know what you think the future should hold for the Bluff Park, a vital community asset.

What do you love about the Bluff? Anything missing? Anything you wish was different? What roles, if any, do you see for the Bluff in strengthening our community and landscape? How and who might collaborate to make the most of this wonderful property?

Below you’ll find a questionnaire to get you started.

Thanks to a generous grant from the Laura Jane Musser Fund to San Isabel Land Protection Trust, the Bluff Committee has launched a community visioning process that will culminate next spring in a comprehensive, long-range plan for strategic management of the Bluff. 

The Bluff represents years of community work toward a goal of bringing our community and visitors together to celebrate, learn about and enhance our valley’s recreational, cultural and natural resources. The 10-acre park consists of Summit Park, owned by the town of Westcliffe, and Bluff Park, owned by San Isabel Land Protection Trust, and protected by a conservation easement with Colorado Open Lands.

Next up is a second community meeting from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Jan 23, in the Community Room at Cliff Lanes in Westcliffe. Please join us!
