Uncompahgre Riverway Master Plan

Uncompahgre Riverway Master Plan CoverGreat Outdoors Colorado (GOCO) provided grant funding, in partnership with the City of Montrose, to prepare a master plan for ten miles of the Uncompahgre River.

With the assistance of public participation, the project team provided specific recommendations for acquiring land and funding enhancements to the riverway corridor. The plan identifies opportunities for trail dedications and other recreational opportunities that may be accommodated with other tools, such as annexation and subdivision developments, along the river corridor. The planning effort prioritized river segments for more intensive project development and examined how to best implement a trail connection between downtown and existing city park property next to the river.
