    In December 2017 Planning Commission expressed support for work toward developing a new Public Health element for the Boulder County Comprehensive Plan (BCCP), and Public Health and Land Use staff are working collaboratively to shape the new element. The purpose of this element is to outline the county’s vision and values for the health of all county residents. These goals and policies will guide regulations, funding requests and program development by the county. This new element will assemble all public health-related BCCP content in one place while expanding the scope of topics previously addressed. The new public health element will explicitly link the built and natural environment and the health of residents, and establish a policy framework for supporting long-term strategies that impact behavior to enhance health outcomes.
    Action Requested: None. Information item only.
    No Public Testimony Will Be Taken.

  7. Study Session: E-bikes and Possible Update to Open Space Element Definition of Passive Recreation
    Boulder County Commissioners approved a one-year pilot study to allow e-bikes on certain trails on the plains starting Jan. 1, 2019. During this pilot period, staff will study the visitor and trail impacts of e-bikes on county trails. The Commissioners also directed staff to investigate options for updating the definition of passive recreation in the Open Space Element of the Comprehensive Plan. The purpose of this discussion is to introduce the Planning Commissioners to the history and process of e-bike outreach in Boulder County to date, to outline a process for considering a revision to the passive recreation definition, and to solicit Planning Commission input on design of the pilot study to ensure they get the information they will need for consideration of this question.
    Action Requested: Planning Commission feedback.
    No Public Testimony Will Be Taken.
