OSAC Meeting Notes
November 2012

Study Session: A review and update of the Conservation Café hosted by JCOS and the Open Space Foundation was presented by Nancy York. The principal outcomes: more coordination with other entities in the Metro area and preparing trail maps that ignore jurisdictional boundaries. Amy Ito and Tom Hoby presented the staff goals and priorities for 2013.

Regular Session: Scot Grossman discussed staff working to attain national agency accreditation from the National Recreation and Park Association's Commission for Accreditation of Park and Recreation Agencies (CAPRA). Receiving accreditation requires demonstrating that the agency complies with about 130 of the 144 standards and approval from a visiting review team. Golden Parks & Recreation Departments the only Metro agency that has achieved accreditation.

A lease for 3.35 acres from the City of Golden at the Apex Trailhead was approved. The additional area will allow installing a restroom, improved parking, and re-alignment of the trail.
