    In the Open Space Element of the Boulder County Comprehensive Plan, passive recreation is defined, in part, as non-motorized. In the wake of a 2017 change in Colorado state law addressing how e-bikes are classified and where they are allowed, county staff conducted public outreach about e-bikes in 2018 and conducted research and outreach during an e-bike pilot project in 2019. Based on research and outreach results during the e-bike pilot, the Boulder County Commissioners made a policy decision to allow e-bikes on plains trails where conventional bikes are allowed. Staff will bring updated recommendations for amending the passive recreation definition based on the Planning Commission study session discussion and input from the Board of Commissioners.
    Action Requested: Decision
    Public testimony will be taken
    Staff Planners: Tina Nielsen

Staff recommendations will be posted to the docket webpages on December 11.
