Strawberry Hill and North Cheyenne Canon master plans approved

Posted: Updated:
COLORADO SPRINGS -

Years of planning and months of controversial debate culminated before the Colorado Springs Parks and Cultural Services Board on Thursday. The board voted on the Strawberry Hill Master Plan, also a new master plan for North Cheyenne Canon Park. Both passed.

 A majority of public comments on the Strawberry Hill plan came from members of the group Save Cheyenne, which formed to fight the land swap between the Broadmoor Hotel and the city. Their opposition carries to the master plan process. There is one part they do like. "They approved it with the condition that no ground be broken until our legal challenge to the land exchange has run its full course in the Colorado Supreme Court," said Save Cheyenne, President, Kent Obee. That law suit could be decided within six months

There was very long debate about delaying the Cheyenne Canon vote until next month. After some minor modifications it passed with a six to three vote.

On both master plans, Parks Board members say they tried to remain focused on their purpose. "So that we are not only moving things forward and make sure that we have plans for the future, but also honoring what citizens are requesting," said Mina Liebert. That includes what has happened over months of input and changes to the plans.
