Master Plan for Chautauqua

April 13, 2011 in Community News, Our Outdoor Playground

Posted: 04/12/2011 10:22:19 PM MDT


Matt LeBeau kisses his daughter Emmy, 7 months old, as the family prepares for a hike at Chautauqua on Tuesday after navigating a full main parking lot and finding a spot on the road around the Chautauqua green. The City Council is split on how to approach the matters of congested parking and proposed new development at the historic 40-acre site. ( PAUL AIKEN )
Boulder should “step back” and develop a comprehensive master plan for the iconic Chautauqua Park before allowing the park’s management to move ahead with construction plans, city planners told leaders Tuesday.

But the City Council was split on how to approach the matters of congested parking and proposed new development at the historic 40-acre site.

The nonprofit Colorado Chautauqua Association recently completed work on the Chautauqua 2020 Plan, a document that charts changes the organization believes are necessary to ensure a “sustainable future” for the park. That plan includes better management of parking, constructing a 7,000-square-foot building for offices and meeting space, and moving the family picnic shelter from the east side of the park to the north side near the children’s playground.

While the association owns most of the historic buildings and has leased 26 acres of the 40-acre park since 1898, the city of Boulder remains the owner of the land and must sign off on any changes to the site.

To help guide those changes, four of the nine council members said they would support a wider planning process that addresses parking, access and use of the site — an idea endorsed by the city staff, the Landmarks Board and Planning Board.

A master plan for Chautauqua would encompass the entire historic district, including the Chautauqua facilities, park land and nearby open space. It would address public access, parking and programs at the park. The planning process would likely include a public outreach campaign and the formation of a steering committee.

“What is it we, the community, want Chautauqua to be?” said Councilwoman Lisa Morzel, who supported the planning process. “I see this as our first real attempt to look at all those uses.”

City staffers estimate it would take about 18 months to complete a master plan.

But other council members, including Suzy Ageton, said creating a master plan would be “overkill.”

“The parking and the traffic, to me, are the No. 1 problem,” she said.

Other options available to the council include allowing the Chautauqua Association to move ahead with specific projects through the standard review process, or supporting an “expedited process” to help make changes faster at the park.

Molly Winter, director of Boulder’s Downtown and University Hill Management Division, told the council that the city plans to conduct a survey of Chautauqua users later this year to find out more about why and how people use the park. The city also will study parking issues at the park this year, she said.

The council will talk again about how to move forward with Chautauqua’s future during a study session scheduled for June 16.

Part of the council’s discussion revolved around a letter sent to the City Council last week by the U.S. Department of the Interior, which is urging the city not to move the picnic shelter at Chautauqua.

“The National Park Service does not recommend moving historic buildings,” wrote Christine Whitacre, program manager for the Heritage Partnership Program. “In fact, moving a historic structure into or within a historic district may jeopardize its ability to contribute to the significance of the district and has a negative effect on the historic integrity of the district.”

The federal official also recommended against plans for any new construction on the property.

Because Chautauqua does not use any federal funding, plans to change the site don’t have to be approved by the Department of the Interior.
