The Parks, Open Space, Recreation and Trails (P.O.R.T.) Advisory committee advises and provides recommendations to the Town staff regarding development and utilization of parks and recreation amenities. This includes providing input on areas to be preserved as open space, establishment of bike ways and trail systems, identification new areas for parks, completion and updating of the parks master plan, current park upgrades, and suggesting options for park and open space utilization.
The P.O.R.T Committee consists of 7 members, appointed by the Board of Trustees, each either a Berthoud Resident or with substantial ties to the Berthoud Community. The Community Development Director and Parks Director shall be Ex Officio members.
Meetings are held on the first Wednesday of the month at 6:00 PM in Berthoud Town Hall, 807 Mountain Ave.
In 2016 a temporary citizen committee was formed to provide initial input on the P.O.R.T. requirements. This large committee was broken into 3 subcommittees to focus on key aspects of citizen input.
