Public Comment Form, Workshops Now Available

Colorado Parks Wildlife Logo - smDENVER – Colorado Parks and Wildlife seeks public input in the development of their 2015 strategic plan. CPW invites the public to workshops scheduled throughout Colorado and offers a brief public comment form available on CPW’s website today through Apr. 3.

CPW aims to craft a vision and strategy that is shared by the public, stakeholders, staff and the Parks and Wildlife Commission. CPW’s strategic plan will set a high-level vision with overarching goals for the agency and identify priorities and strategies for managing Colorado’s state parks, wildlife and outdoor recreation resources.

The Parks and Wildlife Commission began the strategic planning process this past December. Commission Chair Robert Bray recognizes the benefits of a broad set of individuals weighing in.

“I encourage all Coloradans with an interest in the Colorado’s parks, wildlife and outdoor recreation to share their thoughts on the future direction of CPW,” said Bray.

CPW seeks to serve Coloradans and visitors who enjoy Colorado’s wildlife, state parks and outdoor recreation opportunities. This strategic plan aims to improve CPW’s service and responsiveness to those constituents.

Stakeholders and the public are encouraged to join a slated workshop; look for additional workshops on the CPW website.

The 2015 strategic plan will inform CPW programs and processes into the future and will help CPW leadership allocate resources effectively.

“Developing a strategic plan places CPW in the driver’s seat, and guides our priorities for where our critical resources are applied,” said CPW Director Bob Broscheid. “As a public trust agency, engaging and listening to our public is critical to the strategic planning process.”

“The public’s help shaping long-term strategic goals and objectives for CPW ensures successful implementation of the plan through transparency and accountability.”

The strategic plan is scheduled to be finalized in the fall of 2015, then CPW will develop short-term operational plans to translate the shared vision into action on the ground.
