Downtown Catalytic Development Planning

4 Parcels

30+ Acres 

Bang the Table - My Mainstreet

The Town of Parker and the Parker Authority for Reinvestment (P3) owns four parcels of land in their downtown area that are either vacant or underutilized. The four parcels total roughly 30 acres and represent a unique opportunity for catalytic in-fill development that will further activate the surrounding Downtown Parker area. Previous attempts to develop these parcels have been met with significant community pushback and a lack of Town Council alignment. The goal of the project is to generate community and Town Council consensus on the future development opportunity for these four parcels and to then identify a developer(s) who will enter into a development agreement with the Town. This project offers a critical opportunity to strategically engage the community around community benefit in the downtown area, analyze market demand and opportunity, and also building strategic networks and capacities for the larger economic and social growth throughout the entire Parker community. Trestle developed a project specific Bang the Table website to inform the Parker community about the project and changing market conditions, as well as gather community input into future planning scenarios.

Public Process

Open Space and Mountain Parks (OSMP) is celebrating its 50th Anniversary of the nation’s first open space tax. Looking back on the accomplishments from the last 50 years and looking forward to the future, OSMP is developing a departmental master plan. This master plan establishes policies and management priorities that respond to community and system-wide needs. Trestle is working with Design Workshop and OSMP staff to plan a public process that will incorporate community values into an open space strategic vision lasting for the next 10+ years. Public participation will be fostered and encouraged through multiple opportunities so that all stakeholders can engage, participate, interact, and refine the Master Plan.

Starting with the public Kick-Off in early 2018, Trestle and OSMP staff will be engaging diverse communities to solicit feedback and build alignment with community goals. A Public Engagement Plan will be implemented using recommendations from the Public Participation Working Group (PPWG), which was formed to identify problem areas in the public engagement process in Boulder. The PPWG ultimately decided that a sense of shared responsibility must be formed between the City and community in order to foster successful civic engagement.

Trestle and OSMP staff will be utilizing the PPWG’s 5 Core Principles and Values of Good Public Engagement to serve as a framework for the public outreach strategy:

1.    The problem is clearly defined

2.    Public engagement is thoughtfully planned

3.    All voices are encouraged and included

4.    Public contribution and civil participation are fostered

5.    The process is trustworthy and transparent

Since 2015, Trestle has been conducting a series of studies and facility planning efforts on the former Boulder Community Hospital (BCH). Trestle conducted a preliminary redevelopment cost estimate and facility use study which provided the information the the City of Boulder required to purchase the 8.8 acre former hospital property in 2015, including several buildings and parking structure. Trestle is currently conducting a re-use and rehabilitation versus demolition and reconstruction analysis of the property. By identifying key opportunities, benefits, and challenges of both scenarios, Trestle aims to guide the City in evaluating options for future redevelop- ment of the site.

Trestle is also assisting the City design and implement a community storytelling and public engagement program for the BCH campus (Alpine-Balsam). Trestle and the City opened an onsite public engagement space where community members have the opportunity to share their stories, experiences, and memories of the iconic facility, as well as learn about this multi-year community project. This interactive space will provide a platform to engage with the community and guide future visioning and planning efforts for the long term redevelopment of the site.

Finally, Trestle is assisting in the envisioning of the BCH campus and future city facilities with Mithun. By acting as a long-term partner in the investigation, design process, and eventual redevelopment of the entire site, Trestle plans to help establish an additional community asset at the former BCH Campus. As part of a larger consultant team, Trestle will be working with the City to develop a vision and guiding principles for the redevelopment.

Master Planning

Green Gables is a 152-acre golf course and country club property located in unincorporated Jefferson County in Lakewood, CO. The property was master planned and rezoned to allow for a mixed-use community comprised of commercial, residential and open space uses. This site presented an unusual opportunity redevelop a large, infill property into a cohesive, dynamic neighborhood with significant amenities. Future development on the site will be anchored and inspired by the natural and physical elements of the site including the lake and shorelines, trees, views, rolling topography and lake. A significant amount of open space and parks will be created on the site to serve the residents of the Green Gables neighborhood and connect the different neighborhoods and uses.

In addition to the rezoning and master planning, significant infrastructure planning and design was included in this phase of master planning, including the signalized intersection at Wadsworth, a regional roadway extension, water district inclusion, extension of utility mains, gas line relocation, CLOMR/LOMR, ACOE Section 404 Permit and CDOT access permits.

This project met the owner’s objectives through successfully rezoning and platting within an aggressive timeline, and by integrating the requirements of both Jefferson County and the City of Lakewood, as well as the future expectations of the residential and commercial developers.
