White Acres, Colorado Springs

There was some more good news for White Acres this past week. On Thursday the Parks & Recreation Advisory Board unanimously approved TOPS acquisition of White Acres as open space. I was there along with about another dozen people to support the acquisition.

The next meeting about the White Acres open space acquisition will be on April 14th with the city council. This will most likely be the most important meeting. There is some support for White Acres on city council but also some uncertainty.

Friends of Red Rock Canyon have decided to not begin fundraising until city council has approved the acquisition. Originally they had planned to start immediately but felt there could be some issues with that. They need to raise $75,000 this year as part of the deal. Even so they do have commitments from some large donors already.

I’ve put together a Google Map of White Acres that also shows Section 16 and Red Rock Canyon Open Space. I don’t know the exact boundaries especially for Red Rock Canyon but I think I got them fairly close. It also has some of the area trails.

If you’re on Facebook, I also created a Save White Acres Cause. You can use it to help spread the word. It’ll also be another way to get updates and share information on White Acres.
