Community Open House
The Town of Berthoud hosted an Open House on Wednesday, April 4, to gather community input and share information about potential recreational activities at Berthoud Reservoir and the Town’s integrated trail system. Residents were encouraged to stop by the event at their convenience and help develop the vision of future pathways and connections around Town.
Thanks to everyone who attended and shared their input!
Berthoud Reservoir Master Plan
Establishing the Berthoud Reservoir Recreation Master Plan is the first step towards transforming the reservoir into a recreational hub for the community, residents and visitors.
Wenk Associates has been selected to develop the master plan. The firm will identify potential programming elements—including parking, swimming, paddleboards, canoes, water access points, dogs, fishing, trails, picnic shelters, restrooms, signage, fencing, and maintenance access—for consideration in the project.
Unified Pedestrian and Bicycle Trail
Stanley Consultants has been tasked to complete this multi-phase project, which will begin with extensive mapping of the town and region, evaluating community needs and constraints, and establishing guidelines for trail standards.
In addition to the trail map itself, the plan will propose solutions to complicated factors including accessibility, wildlife habitats, parking areas for trail access, integrating new trails and existing trails in the network, and bringing those existing trails up to the new standard across the trail system. Community input from public presentations will inform additional considerations.
