Town of Telluride Open Space Commission
Ecological Resource Consultants, Inc. (ERC) worked with the Town of Telluride to prepare the Telluride Valley Floor Trails and Conceptual Stream Restoration Plan (Plan). The Plan was intended to be a living document to help guide the Town as it moves to implement a comprehensive trails and conceptual stream restoration plan for the Valley Floor open space property. The Plan was developed to identify key project components and design elements that will allow the Town to make improvements to the stream system offsetting the past century of impacts. The Plan is comprehensive in context and includes both simple, inexpensive improvements and more complex, costly recommendations. Thus, the Plan provides a foundation for moving forward with certain recommendations in the short-term and serves as an approved policy document as the Town seeks funding and partners for large scale restoration projects. Cost estimates and recommendations for logical phasing of improvements are included in the Plan.
