        Town of Wellington
        Parks and Trails Master Plan                                            2
I - Introduction

The Parks and Recreation Master Plan is intended to provide an inventory of
existing parks and recreation facilities, assesses existing and future needs for
parks based on projected population growth, develops standards,
guidelines and policies for park and trail development, provides
recommended development scenarios for existing park lands, and outlines
funding strategies for acquisition of park lands and implementation of
improvement projects. The plan also includes recommended standards and
policies for maintenance and operational needs. This plan focuses on
defining needs for parks and recreation facilities and not on recreational
program development.

This Master Plan will provide policy direction for the parks and recreation
staff in the future selection and acquisition of park land, facility development
and funding and grant application strategies. The intent of this document is
to guide the growth and development of the proposed facilities to meet the
community’s desires and needs for leisure services.

An update to the Town of Wellington, Colorado Comprehensive Master
Plan was completed in 2008, and serves as a guide and planning
document for the Town. The development of this Parks and Trails Master
Plan will supplement the visions, goals and policies set forth in the Town’s
Comprehensive Master Plan and will become part of the Comprehensive
Master Plan document when adopted.

The Parks and Trails Master Plan was developed based upon the following
interactions and documents reviews:
     • Town of Wellington, Colorado Comprehensive Master Plan Update
         which provided projected growth scenarios and visions and goals
         of the Town
     • Meetings with and information from the Town’s Administrator,
         Recreation Coordinator and Public Works Director.
     • Meetings with Larimer County Open Space which provided future
         trail connections to the County trail system
     • Meetings with North Poudre Irrigation Company to assess the
         improvements to the North Poudre Reservoir #4 and Smith
         Reservoir
     • Discussions with the City of Fort Collins to determine future trail
         connections with the City
     • Public Workshops with the citizens of Wellington to receive input
         and guidance for the development of conceptual master plans for
         several proposed parks

The information in this plan will assist the Town in establishing direction and
policy for the placement, development and maintenance for this planning
effort:


        Town of Wellington
        Parks and Trails Master Plan                                               3
     •    Establishing standards, guidelines and policies for the placement
          and development of future parks
     •    Implementing conceptual design alternatives and estimates of
          probable construction costs for existing undeveloped park sites
     •    Identifying potential funding methods and grants which would
          help with the implementation of future park and trail facilities
     •    Providing potential locations for a trail overpass/underpass for the
          trail system
     •    Identifying a potential site for a future recreation center complex

Goals and Policies
The goals outlined in this section are a compilation of identified needs,

Trails

The Town of Wellington currently has one section of dedicated trail that
runs in a northwest to southeast alignment along the section of Boxelder
Creek between Ronald Reagan Avenue and George W. Bush Avenue. The
trail is approximately one half mile in length and is constructed of crusher
fines.




Other Recreational Facilities
Because of the limited Town park and recreation facilities, the Town of
Wellington utilizes other fields and recreational facilities throughout
Wellington and the surrounding area to augment the Town’s existing
facilities. Football fields and gyms located at the Wellington Community
Church, Eyestone Elementary and Wellington Junior High, provide
additional recreational areas for Park and Recreation programs such as Flag
Football, Volleyball, Dodgeball and Basketball.

II - Needs Assessment
Park Classification and Service Level Standards
Parks classification standards are being recommended for the Town of
Wellington to define the space and program requirements for the parks
system within Wellington. These standards will establish acceptable levels of
land requirements (size) and recommend suitable program elements for
each park classification.

The overall goals for size and type of facility elements for each park provide
a guide for the Town in planning land acquisition and facility development
for new park facilities. These guidelines and standards will help assure that
planning decisions are consistently applied to all new park developments
and that they serve the best interests of the citizens of the community. To
allow flexibility in the process, the program elements for each new park site
should be determined on a park by park basis to respond to public
involvement input, demographic variables and recreation trends.

Five classifications of parks are proposed for Wellington:
    • Pocket Parks
    • Neighborhood Parks
    • Community Parks
    • Regional Parks
    • Town/School Joint Use Areas

Pocket Parks
Pocket parks usually consist of specialized facilities that serve limited, isolated
or unique recreational needs. This could apply to parks that have limited
land, serve a specific population or provide a unique activity for a special
user group.

Pocket parks should generally be discouraged because of their higher
maintenance requirements, which relate to higher maintenance costs.
Single purpose facilities and small land parcels do not maximize the
maintenance efficiencies within the parks system. However, the following is
a suggested list of suitable facilities for a pocket park:

   •   Turf Grass Areas
   •   Shade Structure
   •   Tot Lot Playground
   •   Benches
   •   Picnic Tables
   •   Facilities Specific to a Special Need
   •   Passive Recreation
   •   Dog Park
   •   Trailhead


        Town of Wellington
        Parks and Trails Master Plan                                                  10
Service Area:                ¼ mile radius serving a single residential setting.

Level of Service Standard:                     0.5 acres per 1000 population

Size:                                                       ½ acre to 1 acre
Neighborhood Parks
Neighborhood parks should be equally distributed throughout the
residential areas of the community. Neighborhood parks will be the most
common park unit found in the Town. These parks should be easily
accessible and within walking distance of each home in the neighborhood
minimizing the need to use vehicles. The parks should be a common area
for residents of all ages to gather, socialize, play and enjoy the community
building benefits within their neighborhoods.

Neighborhood parks will vary in size, topography and site designs
depending on the individual site characteristics and the facility amenities
based on the preferences of the surrounding neighbors. A variety of
facilities should be provided at the neighborhood park sites. The following is
a suggested list of suitable facilities for a neighborhood park:

   •   Practice Softball Field
   •   Practice Soccer/Football Field
   •   Basketball Court
   •   Playground Area
   •   Tennis Court
   •   Shade Structure
   •   Horseshoe Pits
   •   Free Play Turf Areas
   •   Picnic Tables
   •   Benches
   •   Walks and Bike Paths
   •   Floral Displays
   •   Native Vegetation Areas
   •   Water Features
   •   Sand Volleyball

Typically, neighborhood parks do not contain restrooms or have lighted
fields or courts. The water feature would be an interactive water structure
and not a swimming pool facility. Drinking fountains are generally not
included in neighborhood parks.

Service Area:                          ½ mile radius serving one or more
                                       neighborhoods.
Level of Service Standard:             2 acres per 1000 population
Size:                                  6 to 8 acres

Community Parks
Community parks serve a community wide population and community
based recreation facility needs that are considered inappropriate for
neighborhood parks. Community parks are intended to serve a more
diverse user base and provide for a wider variety of recreational activities.
These larger park sites normally generate higher traffic volumes, requiring
large parking lots. Many of the amenities generate high noise levels and
high light levels. Community parks should be located and sized to allow for
generous buffers and sufficient open space when located in residential
areas. Youth and adult sports complexes may be better adapted in
commercial or industrial use areas to minimize impacts.

A community park can also serve as a neighborhood park, but generally for
three or four neighborhoods. Suitable facilities include those listed for
neighborhood parks and the following list:

        •   Regulation Baseball Fields
        •   Regulation Softball Fields
        •   Regulation Soccer/Football Fields
        •   Tennis Court Complexes
        •   Swimming Pool
        •   Recreation Centers
        •   Ice Rinks/Skating Areas
        •   Group Picnic Areas
        •   Skateboard Parks
        •   Off-Street Parking
        •   Restrooms
        •   Drinking Fountains
        •   Racquetball Courts
        •   Special Event Areas
        •   Large Natural Areas
        •   Water Bodies (Lakes or Streams)
        •   Large Playgrounds

Service Area:                    1 ½ mile radius serving the entire community

Level of Service Standard:                      6 acres per 1000 population

Size:                            30 to 100 acres with an optimum size of 30 to
                                 50 acres.


Regional Parks
Regional parks provide recreational opportunities to users that extend
beyond the neighborhood or community park venues. Regional parks are
intended to serve users from outside the community as well as those from

            Town of Wellington
            Parks and Trails Master Plan                                         12
within the community. These types of parks are generally developed and
operated by State, County or other large Governmental entities. Wellington
has the opportunity to participate in the development and operation of a
Regional facility with the Colorado Division of Wildlife and the North Poudre
Irrigation Company. The development of recreational facilities at the North
Poudre #4 Reservoir and the Smith Reservoir would provide amenities that
could attract users from outside the community of Wellington.

Facilities that could be incorporated into a Regional park include the entire
list of park amenities for neighborhood and community parks and the
following:

    •   Large Water Bodies
    •   Fishing/Ice Fishing
    •   Canoeing
    •   Boating
    •   Sailing
    •   Beach Areas
    •   Swimming
    •   Ice Skating
    •   Amphitheaters
    •   Trails
    •   Fitness Course
    •   Shooting Range
    •   Archery Range
    •   Wildlife Habitat Areas
    •   Bird Watching

If the Regional Park sites lend themselves to any of these site opportunities,
they should emphasize the natural features of the site including views,
topography, water bodies, streams or rivers, historical or archeological finds
or historic aspects of the area.

Service Area:                    25 square miles serving several communities

Level of Service Standard:       1 Regional Park per 20,000 population

Size:                            Ranging from 100 acres to 300 acres with the
                                 optimum size of 200 acres. Regional parks can
                                 also be smaller in size but must have facility
                                 elements that will attract a large and diverse
                                 segment of the population.

Town/School Joint Use Areas
Areas adjacent to existing school sites offer an opportunity to utilize existing
facilities and expand services that would benefit the community. School sites
are generally strategically located to serve a specific population center in an

        Town of Wellington
        Parks and Trails Master Plan                                               13
area of the community. Cooperative agreements between the School
District and the Town would benefit both organizations and would provide
the citizens with greater recreational opportunities. Joint use areas provide
larger sites with more diverse recreational amenities. The operation and
maintenance of these sites can also be reduced for both parties if
cooperative agreements are initiated.

Standards for the development of these types of areas are generally site
specific and are not covered under National criteria. The benefits of jointly
using facilities make sense to the public as well. Taxpayer dollars are better
utilized if the entities work cooperatively together. Facilities that would
benefit both entities at adjacent locations would include the following:

        •   Youth Softball/Baseball Field
        •   Youth Soccer/Football Field
        •   Playground Areas
        •   Basketball Court
        •   Active Turf Areas
        •   Paved Surfaces for Organized Games
        •   Indoor Gymnasiums
        •   Meeting Rooms

Service Area:                    Elementary school sites would be similar to
                                 neighborhood park sites. Junior High and
                                 High School sites would be more compatible
                                 as a community park site.

Level of Service Standard:       No standards

Size:                            The physical size of the facilities will vary based
                                 on the available area of the facility and the
                                 programmed elements proposed for each
                                 entity.


Programming Guidelines

Traditional Approach
Programming guidelines are recommended standards for determining the
number of facilities that are needed to serve a community based on
population. These guidelines are based on level of service standards
developed by the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) and
applied to a wide variety of communities and cities of very different sizes
with different needs and characteristics. These program guidelines provide a
framework for planning and a means to evaluate or measure the
community’s ability to provide adequate facilities for their users. The
following are recommended level of service standards based on the
traditional approach for various functions and facilities.

Racquetball Court (Outdoor)            1 court per 10,000 population

These levels of service standards are intended to provide planning guidance
and recommended guidelines only and should be evaluated and adjusted
based on the existing community demographics and the recreational needs
of the users.

Community Tailored Standards and Guidelines
The NRPA has adjusted their position on recommended level of service
standards and has suggested that communities develop their own specific
standards and guidelines based on the specific needs of their citizens. Most
recently, guidelines have shifted away from setting specific park land area
standards and instead recommend flexibility in order to accommodate the
unique circumstances and situations that arise in various communities. The
adoption of broad goals is needed to ensure that the quantity of
Wellington’s park lands base is generally adequate to serve their population,
while also setting specific goals and objectives for the types and sizes of
parks and facilities needed.

Small Community Parks and Recreation Planning Standards, a report
developed by the Rural Planning Institute for the State of Colorado, can also
serve as a useful resource. These standards address the demand for specific
recreation facility types in response to the actual use patterns and desires of
small communities in Colorado. This model advocates a much tailored
approach to addressing a community’s needs that goes beyond the
provision of general recommendations of acreages for various park
classifications. The overall park acreage demand standard for a small
community like Wellington as developed by the Rural Planning Institute is
14 acres per 1000 population. This should be considered as a “guideline”
only and should be applied with flexibility and in consideration of the
Town’s specific recreation needs.

        Town of Wellington
        Parks and Trails Master Plan                                              15
The planning standards presented in the report prepared by the Rural
Planning Institute were developed for communities with less than 10,000
population and are intended to replace the NRPA standards. The parks and
recreation standards for small communities were established using the
following methodology.

   1. What is the citizen demand for various parks and recreation
      resources? That is, how much or how often are small community
      residents using softball fields, trails, playgrounds, etc.?
   2. What is the capacity for various recreation resources? That is, how
      many citizens can a softball field or playground accommodate? Or
      put another way, if there is demand for softball fields, how many will
      our community need to meet the demand?
   3. Given demand and capacity for certain facilities, how much land will
      be needed to accommodate those facilities? This typically expressed
      in acreage per capita. Or more specifically, acreage per 1000
      residents.

The determination of the citizen demand for recreation facilities is achieved
through extensive local survey combined with national and industry trend
data collection to determine the frequency of use and preferences for
facilities.

Once the demand for the parks facilities have been determined then the
capacity of the parks system is needed. Two steps are required to determine
facility capacity. These steps are: 1. Estimate the number of players or
participants that the parks facility can accommodate; 2. Estimate the number
of activity sessions or play opportunities the parks facility can accommodate
per month. Since some activities are seasonal, this analysis was tailored to
provide per month responses.

The third component of the formula is park land standards. Park facilities
need to be placed on land. The land requirements include the area for the
specific playing field, area around the field as a buffer space and parking.
Event activities create large land demands due to the size and parking
requirements. As a general rule, each one acre event activity will require
approximately two acres of parking.

Park planning standards are the result of demand for and the capacity of
the parks and recreation facilities. These standards should always be viewed
as an estimated minimum and not as a maximum.

Existing Parks Service Areas
 As defined in the existing park inventory section, Wellington currently has
seven park and recreation facilities in its system, Library Park, Centennial Park,
Viewpoint Park, Park Meadows Park, Buffalo Creek Park, the Knolls Boxelder
Open Space and the Boxelder Creek Trail Open Space . Based on their size,
most of these facilities are classified as neighborhood parks and have a

        Town of Wellington
        Parks and Trails Master Plan                                                 16
service area of a ½ mile radius. The Knolls Boxelder Open Space because of
its size and location is considered a pocket park with a service area of a ¼
mile radius. The Boxelder Creek Trail Open Space although it offers open
space does not contain any of the recreation amenities associated with a
pocket, neighborhood or community park and therefore will not be
assigned a service area but will be included in the overall park and open
space calculations. Wellington also makes use of facilities at Eyestone
Elementary School and Wellington Jr. High School however; these facilities
would be classified as Joint Use Facilities. Eyestone Elementary Schools
would have a service area of one half mile radius while Wellington Jr. High
School would have a one and one half mile radius. Figure 1 shows the
existing Wellington park and recreational elements and their level of service
radii.

Comparison of Standards with Existing Facilities
Since extensive research and community survey data was not conducted as
part of this Master Plan process, the projections for recommended levels of
service will be based upon the traditional NRPA standards.

To forecast the needs and demands for parks and recreation facilities, the
following table shows the population projections for the next 15 years.
These population projections and the correlating demands for parks and
recreation facilities should be reviewed every five years and updated with
the community Comprehensive Master Plan.

* Total parkland developed includes the approximately 17 acres associated with the Boxelder Creek Trail Open
Space.
**  Wellington has currently reached a population where a community park is warranted. Buffalo Creek Park
which is approximately 30 acres is partially developed.


Trail Needs Assessment
The current trail system in Wellington is limited at best (See Figure 14). There
are currently no paved trail sections within the community. An unpaved
section of trail extends through an area adjacent to Boxelder Creek near the
new elementary school site in south Wellington. This trail section is currently
part of a developed subdivision, but will be conveyed to the Town in the
near future. The Town of Wellington currently has land dedications for two
of three miles of Boxelder Trail route. The only other developed trail
amenities are located on existing roadways throughout the community. The
majority of the on road bikeways are not striped or signed.

The table below projects the trail needs according to the trail standards for
the next 10 years. Additional trails are needed within the community and
consideration should be given to extending the trail system to connect with
the Larimer County trail system which is approaching Wellington from the
south along Boxelder Creek.

III - Standards, Design Guidelines and Policies

      Development Standards
Park Development Standards
Standardization of park components and amenities not only create a unique
identity for the Town of Wellington park system but it can also lead to
efficiencies and cost savings in park maintenance and operations costs. A
standard for site furnishings such as picnic tables, benches, trash
receptacles, drinking fountains and even sport and play equipment can
lessen the amount of inventory of parts as well as tools required for on-
going parks maintenance and operation. In addition to site furnishings and
amenities, irrigation components such as water meters, backflow prevention
devices, drip emitters, spray heads, control valves, etc. and lighting poles and
fixtures are two other areas where standardization can help eliminate large
inventories of spare parts and tools. Product standardization also helps with
training of staff on equipment operations, repair and replacement
procedures.

In selecting standardized components, the Town of Wellington should
consider a variety of factors that could affect that decision. Factors such as
product safety; initial cost and replacement cost, availability of product, ease
of installation, vandalism concerns, product longevity, as well as the overall
aesthetics of the components should be addressed prior to committing to a
product or products. Typically, municipalities will look for manufacturers
that provide a “family” of products such as picnic tables, benches and trash
receptacle that are all manufactured in the same style and color which will
establish the overall aesthetic or character desired by the community.

Other components that could benefit from standardization would be park
signage, entry monumentation, shade or picnic structures and sport
equipment such as basketball hoops, backboards and ball field backstops.

Trail Development Standards
Trails within a community provide an important recreational amenity as well
as providing important links to community parks, open space and the
community in general, and provide alternative, off-street routes for non-
motorized circulation i.e. pedestrian, bicycle, skateboard etc. As with most
circulations systems, consistency in that system plays a large part in the
overall success and safety of that system, and trails are no exception. The
proposed trail alignment within Wellington will be primarily along Boxelder
Creek through commercial and residential properties and cross several
surface streets within Wellington. The trail itself should therefore assume the
majority of users would be walkers, joggers, bicyclists, and potentially
skateboards and inline skates. Equestrian users are not anticipated on the
main section of trail.

Typical trail standards should address the following areas:

           /Height:
      Width/Height
Trail Width/Height::

        Town of Wellington
        Parks and Trails Master Plan                                               19
A recommended trail sections should be a minimum of 10 feet wide with a
1 to 2 foot clear shoulder on each side of the main trail and have a
minimum vertical clearance from structures or plant material of 10 feet.

Trail Surface:
Ideally, the trail would be constructed of reinforced, 3000 p.s.i concrete with
a minimum thickness of 4 inches, 6 inches if any vehicular traffic such as
maintenance trucks is anticipated. If concrete is cost prohibitive, then asphalt
would be an acceptable alternative with a minimum thickness of 3 inches of
asphalt over 6 inches of an aggregate base course. Trails constructed of
crusher fines is not recommended as this type of construction is subject to
erosion, material migration, and vegetation growth all of which lead to
higher maintenance costs.

       Speed:
Design Speed:
20 mph for paved trail sections, 15 mph for unpaved or soft trail sections.

       Distance:
Sight Distance:
Comply with AASHTO design guidelines. Pay particular attention to narrow
trail sections, intersections, curved sections, sections that are prone to
moisture and shaded areas.

       Slope:
Cross Slope:
2 percent maximum cross slope in one direction . Provide positive drainage
off of trail alignment and away from the trail alignment on both sides.

Accessibility:
Accessibility:
ADA trail guidelines are as follows:
   • 5% grade or less for any distance
   • Up to 8.33% grade for 200 feet maximum. Resting intervals no more
       than 200 feet apart.
   • Up to 10% for 30 feet maximum. Resting intervals at 30 feet.
   • Up to 12.5% for 30 feet maximum. Resting intervals at 10 feet.
   • No more than 30% of the trail may exceed a running slope of 8.33%
   • Passing space provided at least every 1000 feet where trail width is
       less than 5 feet.
   • Signs shall be provided along the trail indicating the length of the
       accessible trail segment.

Clearance:
1 to 2 foot clear area on each side of the trail. 3 feet or more of clearance is
desirable between the trail and obstructions such as signs, poles, trees,
walls, fencing etc.




Railings/Fencing:

        Town of Wellington
        Parks and Trails Master Plan                                               20
   •   54-inch minimum height for bicycle trails/42-inch minimum height
       for pedestrian only trails.
   •   Railings/fencing should extend 6 to 8 feet beyond the edge of the
       hazard area.
   •   Railings/fencing should be flared outward , away from the trail to
       prevent trail users from colliding with the exposed edge of the
       railing/fencing.

                                              Guidelines
Community Recreation Facility Programming Guidelines
As part of this Master Planning process, the Town requested that
information be developed regarding programming guidelines for a
Community Recreation Center. The following information is general in
nature and based solely on facilities constructed in surrounding
communities. Normally programming sessions would be held with the
community to determine the citizen’s specific needs and desires.

Recreation centers are generally 50,000-80,000 square feet in size with
amenities determined by the user’s needs and desires data. Facilities
generally include gymnasiums, free and circuit weight equipment,
cardiovascular equipment, meeting and multi-purpose rooms, locker rooms,
indoor track, racquetball courts, a kitchen area, an indoor swimming pool,
craft rooms, and office and administrative space. Many facilities have
specialty areas that could include rock climbing walls, steam and sauna
facilities, water slides and lap pools, and indoor ice arenas. The estimated
construction cost for recreation center facilities is $180-$220 per square foot.

As communities reach thresholds in their growth and financial ability to
support a recreation center, it becomes apparent that they may need to
phase the improvements and add specialty areas as the community grows
and can support these new amenities. Certain elements must be
programmed in the initial phases to allow for logical and sequential
development. Elements that would need to be included in the first
development phase could include front desk and administrative areas, one
or two gymnasiums, meeting and multi-purpose rooms, restrooms and
locker rooms with shower facilities, cardiovascular equipment, and kitchen
equipment. These facilities start to build attendance and usage and provide
direction for future additions to the facility. The demands and needs of the
users sometimes change as they use the facility.

 The fee structure developed for the operation of the facility also affects the
demand for certain Center facilities. Modest fee policies may cause a higher
demand on certain facilities that are heavily used because of popularity or
trends in recreation. These facilities can include the pool, gymnasiums, multi-
purpose rooms, and cardiovascular equipment. Determining the level of
subsidy provided by the Town also needs to be addressed. In many cases,
recreational services are subsidized. The Town and the community need to
determine what levels of cost recovery are acceptable for the different
services and programs. The user fees need to set in accordance with the

        Town of Wellington
        Parks and Trails Master Plan                                               21
subsidy levels approved and the cost recovery percentages should be
determined to establish the operating budget for the facility. These fee
policies should be reviewed periodically in the early operations of a facility
and adjustments made when necessary to help guide financial decisions.

Maintenance and Operation Standards and Policies
Parks and Recreation Maintenance Management Practices are an extremely
important aspect in the development of a parks and trails program. The
Town should establish maintenance standards and policies to maintain
developed parks, civic complexes, cemetery, trail corridors, and other turf
areas utilized by the community. The following policy recommendations
and management guidelines will help guide and assist the Town in
achieving consistent maintenance practices.
   • Develop turf and field maintenance standards for parks that will
       provide the level of quality and appearance that is acceptable to the
       Town.
   • Establish carrying capacities for all athletic fields and limit use of the
       fields as appropriate.
   • Develop a field closure protocol to restrict use of fields when
       weather, vandalism, drought, or other circumstances dictate the
       need to restrict the use of the fields.
   • Develop maintenance standards for trails and trail corridors that will
       provide for safe and enjoyable use of the system.

Maintenance Operations
         1. Inspections: Perform inspections on a daily basis for each park
            to identify any damage, vandalism, unsafe conditions, or
            hazards that require immediate attention.

           2. Turf Maintenance:
                  a. Maintain grass height according to use of turf area
                     and species of grass. Recommended mowing height
                     2 ½ - 3 inches.
                  b. Mow turf areas once every five days or as required
                     based on weather conditions.
                  c. Turf areas should be aerated as required, but not less
                     than twice a year.
                  d. Turf should be fertilized two to three times a year with
                     a general purpose fertilizer or a NPK formula based on
                     tested deficiencies.
                  e. Weed and insect control should be applied to turf
                     areas on an as needed basis when weeds or insect
                     damage is visible. Applications may be made once a
                     year as a preventive measure if desired.
                  f. Overseeding should be accomplished to repair
                     damaged turf. This operation should be accomplished
                     during the spring and/or fall season.

          g. Turf repair should be accomplished as needed by
             sodding or seeding.

   3. Irrigation Systems: Irrigation systems are vital to the survival of
      the turf in parks and on athletic fields.
           a. Application rates and the frequency of watering shall
               be determined by the rainfall, temperature, micro-
               climates, the type of use on the turf and the type of
               turf grass.
           b. Watering should be scheduled for night application
               to allow maximum use of the facilities during daylight
               hours.

   4. Equipment Repairs: Damaged elements of the park site such
      as playground equipment, park signage, site furnishings,
      structures, irrigation heads or boxes, fencing or other
      elements shall be repaired immediately. Graffiti shall be
      removed in accordance with the Town code or within 24
      hours whichever is more stringent.

   5. Plant Material Maintenance: Plant materials will include trees,
      shrubs, and flower beds.
          a. Disease or insect problems in plant materials will be
             corrected at the earliest stage of observation.
          b. Pruning shall be performed annually on shrubs to
             maintain their natural shape and to remove dead
             material.
          c. Dead or diseased shrubs will be removed immediately
             upon discovery.
          d. Tree pruning shall be performed on regular basis to
             promote the proper shape of the tree and to remove
             dead material.
          e. Hazardous trees shall be removed immediately.
          f. Floral beds shall be kept weed free.
          g. Floral plantings shall be watered, fertilized, debudded
             and sprayed for weed control seasonally.

   6. Trash and Litter Control: Provide enough trash receptacles to
      accommodate the park facility. Park areas shall be cleaned
      and receptacles serviced once a day in season.

   7. Hard Surface Maintenance: Concrete, asphalt and brick
      paved surfaces shall be swept or washed so sand, dirt or
      leaves do not accumulate.

   8. Structures and Buildings: Shelters or restroom buildings shall
      be cleaned daily in season or more often if the need dictates.

           9. Snow Removal: Snow removal from park facilities shall be in
              accordance with the Town code.

           10. Trail Maintenance: Maintenance on trails and trail corridors
               shall consist of the following:
                   a. The concrete trails shall be swept periodically to
                       remove dirt, gravel, sand, leaves, glass or other
                       obstructions.
                   b. Trail shoulders shall be maintained to prevent rutting
                       or mounding that could cause tripping hazards.
                   c. Concrete trail surfaces shall be inspected for
                       differential settlement or cracking that could cause
                       tripping hazards.
                   d. Inspect trail signs and interpretive signage for damage
                       or vandalism. Remove graffiti immediately if found.
                   e. Inspect trails for low hanging vegetation and remove
                       immediately if 10 feet minimum clearance is violated.

Outsourcing for Parks Maintenance
For small parks and recreation maintenance departments, the use of private
contractors for certain aspects of the maintenance program may benefit the
program and reduce the overall maintenance budget. Maintenance
operations that should be reviewed and considered for privatization include
fertilization, aeration, weed and insect control, and tree and shrub pruning.
The equipment used for most of these operations is specialized and
generally are only used in the spring and fall seasons. The acquisition of this
type of equipment by the Town for limited use may not be cost effective.
The Town may find it more cost effective to subcontract these services to an
outside vendor on a yearly or fixed term basis. The use of private contractors
for these operations would also free up staff time and reduce the number of
full/part time employees.

                        Standards
Reservoir Improvement Standards
The Town of Wellington also considers Smith Lake and North Poudre
Reservoir Number 4 as recreational amenities for the citizens of Wellington
and should consider standards for this type of amenity as well. Trail
connections to both of these areas should be considered. The trail should
match the width and construction of adjacent trails and provide circulation
to the main amenities located within Smith Lake and North Poudre
Reservoir Number 4. Other standards should include parking areas, signage
and fishing docks. Because both Smith Lake and North Poudre Reservoir
Number 4 can experience fluctuating water levels, fishing docks should be a
floating system, which will allow the dock to rise and fall with the water
levels. Floating dock systems such as Connect-a-Dock, which is a molded,
composite plastic system and Qupont, which offers a concrete floating dock
system are but a few options to consider. Any dock system would need to
provide ADA access.



        Town of Wellington
        Parks and Trails Master Plan                                              24
Overpass/Underpass Guidelines
The Town has identified the need to connect the residents on the east side
of I-25 to the services and amenities that are located on the west side of the
highway. A future interchange project at Cleveland and I-25 may provide
an opportunity for a pedestrian walkway system in conjunction with the
construction of the interchange. This would provide one connection point
at the northern side of Wellington. In reviewing the opportunities for
another overpass/underpass location toward the southern side of
Wellington, an existing box culvert was identified as a possible location. The
box culvert is a three cell box with adequate height and width to
accommodate pedestrian movement. The structure is owned by CDOT and
would require their review and approval to utilize this structure.

Based on future plans for the removal of a portion of the Cold Creek
floodplain, in 2010 with a FEMA grant, to an irrigation improvement north
of Wellington; the amount of stormwater drainage that previously passed
through Wellington and merged with Boxelder Creek would be reduced
by one third of the normal flow. The identified box culvert accepts the flows
from Boxelder Creek and Cold Creek. If the hydraulics of the existing box
culvert revealed that one of the cells could be converted to a trail underpass
and still meet the drainage requirements, the connection between the east
and west side of I-25 could be resolved. This would provide an immediate
solution at a minimal cost to the Town. Current cost projections for an
overpass would range from $2.5 to $2.75 million. A new underpass would
cost approximately $1.75 to $2 million. An underpass would require an
open cut of I-25 and cause closure of two lanes at a time during
construction. Detours would be prevalent during construction and the flow
of traffic would be impacted.

To determine if the existing box culvert is a viable option, preliminary plans
depicting the proposed actions would need to be prepared and submitted
to CDOT for review. The submission of conceptual plans would start their
internal process and bring comments from all of the sections affected. The
CDOT review would help determine if this proposed project had a chance
of being approved and should be further studied.

Park Site Selection Criteria
Sites considered for future park development should refer to the
recommendations for size and level of service depending on future growth
trends. Ideally, the areas of the town that are deficient in park facilities are
identified and as development is planned, sufficient land is set aside to
accommodate the required level of recreational facility. It is anticipated that
the majority of pocket and neighborhood park development will occur as
part of future residential development as land is typically dedicated as part
of the development for parks and open space. If land is dedicated by a
developer, the land should be useable and not restricted by other
requirements or applications. Land dedicated for parks should not also
function as detention ponds or water quality areas. The land should be
relatively flat and have sufficient size and shape to allow amenities such as

        Town of Wellington
        Parks and Trails Master Plan                                               25
ball fields and open play areas to be constructed. Ideally, park lands shoucl
also be located where non-potable irrigation from adjudicated wells is
available. Lands that have steep slopes, flood plan restrictions, utility
easements that restrict use, or other limitations that reduce the use of the
land for recreational purposes should be avoided, or simply not accepted by
the Town as suitable park land. Park lands should be prime development
parcels that will benefit the community and not create unusually high
development and long term maintenance costs.

IV – Master Plan Implementation Recommendations

Park Recommendations
The Town of Wellington is currently meeting its total park area
recommendations primarily through land dedications associated with
subdivision development. However, the Town is underserved in
soccer/football fields and softball fields, as well as in tennis and volleyball
courts. Usable tracts of land will be necessary to meet the needs for
soccer/football and softball fields in Wellington in the future. Therefore
increasing the Town’s standards for acceptable park land is a much needed
goal to accomplish this shortage.

Neighborhood Parks: Wellington’s four neighborhood parks, Library,
Centennial, Viewpointe and Park Meadows, and one pocket park, the Knolls
Boxelder site appear to provide adequate service of neighborhood parks to
the majority of Wellington that is currently built, (See Figure 1). The Town of
Wellington has identified additional sites as a neighborhood park that will
provide neighborhood parks to areas identified as or are already
experiencing growth. One site is located south of GW Bush Avenue and
west of the West Frontage Road, (See Figure 2). Another site located east
of I-25 within the Meadow Village subdivision is currently planned as a park
site and would provide a neighborhood level park for this portion of the
town, (See Figure 2). In order for Wellington to provide an adequate level
of service for neighborhood parks an additional three sites would need to
be identified and planned as neighborhood park sites, (See Figure 2).
Neighborhood park LOS radii should take into account that I-25 bisects
Wellington and LOS radii should be areas that can be accessed by foot or
by non-motorized means without crossing the freeway. Since the majority
of future neighborhood parks will be developed in conjunction with
residential development, Wellington officials should work closely with
developers to ensure that future neighborhood parks are located
appropriately.

Community Parks: There are currently no community parks in Wellington.
However, there are two parcels that have been identified by the Town as
potential community park sites. The first site is located north of Washington
Avenue, between West First Street and Buffalo Creek Parkway, and in fact
this site has been dedicated and improvements such as the irrigation ponds,
pump house and batting cages are in place. The second site is located

        Town of Wellington
        Parks and Trails Master Plan                                              26
north of Ronald Reagan Ave. between the railroad tracks and
Horsechestnut Street. Although based on its size, this site could be classified
as a neighborhood park, this site has been identified as a potential site for a
community recreational center, which would then classify it as a community
park site. The Town only owns a portion of the site and would require
additional land acquisition to increase the site. Based on the (LOS) mapping,
(See Figure 3) the Town of Wellington appears to have made provisions to
obtain or has identified sites to provide adequate community park land
coverage.

            Facilities:
Joint Use Facilities: Wellington Jr. High School and Eyestone Elementary are
currently being used as joint-use facilities and should continue to be used to
augment the Town of Wellington Park and Recreations facilities until
sufficient Town facilities exist. This type of agreement between the Town of
Wellington and the school system is advantageous to both parties as it
maximizes the operations and maintenance costs of each entity. With the
completion of the Knoll’s Elementary School, a third, additional resource
may become available in the near future, (See Figure 4). Since Joint Use
Facilities are by definition, facilities owned by another entity, which allows
use by another, no other joint-use facilities can be planned by the Town of
Wellington. However, until the Town can provide adequate Town owned
facilities other joint use opportunities should continue to be pursued as
necessary.

Trail Recommendations
As with the parks and recreation facilities, the Wellington trail system is also
not to acceptable levels of service. There is currently only one-half mile of
developed trail, which is approximately 2.1 miles under what is
recommended by acceptable recreation standards. Fortunately, Boxelder
Creek provides a natural route for a majority of the preferred trail alignment
identified in Figure 14. The preferred trail alignment runs from the proposed
Water Treatment Facility, located in the southeastern portion of the Town
and runs in a northwestern alignment. Ideally, the trail would continue
under I-25 and connect to the existing section of trail. From this point the
trail would continue along Boxelder Creek all the way to Washington Ave.
where it would split into two routes towards Smith Lake and North Poudre
Reservoir Number 4. Secondary sections of the trail will also follow surface
streets or other identified routes to connect parks and amenities that are not
directly adjacent to Boxelder Creek. Certain portions of the preferred trail
alignment would require approval of an underpass beneath the Burlington
Northern Railroad tracks and in other areas, additional right of way would
need to be acquired. If these situations cannot be accommodated,
alternative trail alignments would be provided along surface streets or
within residential development open space to allow for a continuous trail.
The existing trail section should be used as the starting point for additional
trail sections and extend it either in a northwestern or southeastern
direction to build on the existing section and provide a longer, usable trail as
sections are constructed.

        Parks and Trails Master Plan                                               27
Community Recreation Facility Recommendations

Since the Town of Wellington will only have one community recreation
center, that facility should be located as close to the center of the
community as possible to minimize the distance any citizen will have to
travel to the facility. Given that the majority of existing and future
development will occur west of I-25, it makes sense that the community
recreation center be located west of I-25. The parcel of land located north
of Ronald Reagan Ave. between the railroad tracks and Horsechestnut
Street would be an ideal location as it is on the west side of I-25 and is the
most centralize available property within Wellington. It is recommended
that the Town of Wellington, if possible, purchase the parcel adjacent to the
west. This additional parcel would allow for not only the community
recreation facility but also for much needed multi-use recreational fields.
(See Figure 14 No. 2 and Figures 9 and 10)

V - Funding and Implementation Strategies

Development Requirements
Communities have a number of options for funding parks and recreation
services including traditional funding mechanisms such as development
impact fees, local sales and property taxes, general fund, general obligation
and revenue bonds. The Town needs to establish a philosophy regarding
subsidy of services supported from tax dollars versus cost recovery from user
fees. Typically, park development, maintenance and operational costs are
subsidized heavily through the general fund.

Traditionally, the Town of Wellington has funded parks and recreation
facilities and programs through the Park Fund. This fund includes park
impact fees, Conservation Trust fund, open space sales tax, and transfers
from the general fund. Current park impact fees should be studied to make
certain the requirements are in line with today’s philosophies for park and
recreation development. The Town also has a Park Land Dedication or Fees
in Lieu of Park Land Dedication requirement in their Land Use Code. This
condition requires all developments to dedicate land for parks, schools and
open space. Cash payments may be substituted in lieu of land donations;
however this is only for the purpose of acquiring land and not for park
development. If land is dedicated, the land should be useable and not
restricted by other requirements or applications. Land dedicated for parks
should not function as detention ponds or water quality areas. The land
should be relatively flat and have sufficient size and shape to allow amenities
such as ball fields and open play areas to be constructed. Lands that have
steep slopes, flood plan restrictions, utility easements that restrict use, or
other limitations that reduce the viable use of the land for recreational
purposes should be avoided. Park lands should be prime development
parcels that will benefit the community and not create unusually high
development costs.

The Town has an unusual situation that will need to be addressed in
planning for future park and recreation development. This situation stems
from the communities desire to grow and expand their tax base. Trying to
keep development requirements and costs low to attract developers has
placed the Town in an unusual situation. In keeping development costs low,
the Town is not receiving enough revenue to subsidize the development of
parks and recreation facilities and programs. A balance will have to be
struck between new development and the desire to create a level of parks
and recreation services that will satisfy the community. Keeping the
development fees low to attract new development can negatively impact
the Town's ability to provide infrastructure and services in parks and
recreation thus not providing the amenities that attract new homeowners
and residents. The Town has to balance the distribution of development
with the long term needs of the community with regard to parks and
recreational amenities.

        Town of Wellington
        Parks and Trails Master Plan                                              29
Other Potential Funding Sources
In addition to development impact fees, several other methods of funding
should be considered. The following are examples that should be
considered.
•      Local Sales Tax Revenues: Increase the percentage of sales tax on
       sales of goods or services. Sales tax is an ongoing tax that can be
       assessed for a specific period of time to fund a specific project or
       assessed for a specific period of time with a date of termination.

•      Revenue Bonds: Revenue bonds are typically used to fund capital
       projects that benefit the community. These are bonds that are not
       guaranteed by the governmental entity, but are purchased by
       investors who incur the risk. The governmental entity may however
       be required to pay higher interest rates.

•      General Obligation Bonds: These are bonds that are issued by the
       Town against the value of the taxable property. The Town property
       owners pay property taxes to cover the obligation bonds.

•      Colorado Lottery Money: These revenues are derived from proceeds
       of the State lottery and Lotto. These funds are distributed based on
       population.

•      Non-Profit Foundation: The Town can establish a non-profit
       foundation to accept donations of cash or land that can be "tax-
       deductible" contributions. This Foundation's primary function would
       be to provide a vehicle for interested citizen's to make donations in
       support of local parks and recreation services, programs and facilities.

•      Public/Private Partnerships: For public/private partnerships to work
       there must be mutual benefits for all parties in the partnership.
       Benefits may include the reduction of duplicate services or facilities,
       the use of complimentary assets, and the maximization of
       operational funding. Partnerships could exist between the Town and
       the School District, the Town and State Agencies, and local
       businesses.

•      Sponsorships: Sponsorships could include naming rights, program
       sponsorship, and Corporate alliances.

Grant Opportunities
A number of Federal, State, and local grants are available to help fund park
and recreation projects. The majority of these grants require a matching
contribution from the local community. The following list of grant
opportunities can be used for parks and recreation projects.
•      The Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF): This grant is
       administered by the Division of Parks and Outdoor Recreation of the

       Town of Wellington
       Parks and Trails Master Plan                                               30
       Colorado Department of Natural Resources. This program is based
       on a 50% fund match.

•      Conservation Trust Fund for Local Governments: The Colorado
       Department of Local Affairs distributes funds from net Lottery
       proceeds to eligible local governments which includes counties,
       cities, towns, and special districts that provide park and recreation
       services in their community plans.

•      Great Outdoors Colorado (GOCO): Great Outdoors Colorado funds
       several types of projects from the proceeds of the Colorado Lottery
       including: Legacy Initiative Grants, Local Government Grants, Open
       Space Grants, Wildlife Grants, and Trails Grants. These programs are
       based on fund match participation.

•      Recreation Trails Program (TEA-21): Administered by the Department
       of Transportation, this program provides funding for recreational trail
       projects and trail-related projects.

•      Fishing-Is-Fun Grant: This grant is administered by the Colorado
       Division of Wildlife for fishing and water related activities.

Implementation Strategies
The Town of Wellington will not be able to fund all parks and recreation
facilities and improvements all at once. A phased approach will be required
to implement the actions and recommendations of the Master Plan. The
following strategies are intended to capture the highlights of the Parks and
Trails Master Plan and summarize the important actions that need to be
implemented.
•         Adopt the Parks and Trails Master Plan and make it a part of the
          2008 Comprehensive Plan of the Town of Wellington.

•      Prioritize the projects list and funding needs for the projects and
       develop a funding action plan for implementation.

•      Evaluate the current park impact fees and adjust the requirements to
       better balance the cost of land acquisition and park development
       with the addition of new residential development.

•      Based on the Level of Service criteria proposed in the Master Plan,
       locate and preserve land parcels to provide future park facilities
       within reasonable walking distance to all residents within the
       community.

•      Preserve and acquire the necessary land to construct a future
       Community Recreation Center.

       Parks and Trails Master Plan                                              31
•   Identify the land owners of the parcels of land needed for the trail
    system and initiate discussions for the donation or acquisition of the
    needed parcels.

•   Adopt uniform criteria and standards for the development of
    neighborhood parks.

•   Adopt uniform criteria and standards for the development of a trail
    system.

•   Review new development plans submitted for approval and
    incorporate conditions on the developers for the dedication of trail
    corridor and park land if needed.

•   The Town should evaluate their existing park impact fees to allow for
    adequate development of trails as well as park development.

•   Prepare preliminary plans for submission to the Colorado
    Department of Transportation for review of the potential use of one
    cell of the existing box culvert under I-25 at Boxelder Creek as an
    underpass for the trail system and a pedestrian connection for
    residents on the West side of I-25.

•   Participate in the development and execution of an
    Intergovernmental/Private Company Agreement for use of the
    reservoirs northwest of town for regional recreational opportunities.

•   Consider establishing a Non-Profit Foundation to receive donations
    and dedications.

•   Develop budget funding levels to apply for matching grant money
    through various grant programs.

•   Identify opportunities to develop public/private partnerships for
    parks and recreation facilities and programs.

•   Continue to seek public input and community support for park and
    trail projects.

•   Continue to seek a range of funding opportunities by applying for
    various grants and seeking donations for matching contributions.

•   Work with County, State, and other local agencies to connect the
    Town's trail facilities into a regional trail system.

•   Build a partnership with the local School District to maximize use of
    the existing community facilities.

VI – Summary

Summary
With the preparation of this document, the Town of Wellington has taken
the first steps in preparing itself to meet the park and recreational needs of
it’s growing community for generations to come. The Town of Wellington
Parks and Trails Master Plan provides the framework for the Town to
evaluate their current programs for implementing and funding park and
recreational facilities and amenities.

This document has evaluated the Town’s current park and recreation
resources and has compared that with acceptable levels of service
recreational standards to recommend where the Town should focus it
recreational dollars. The recommendations of this document are based on
current conditions, public meetings and input from Town staff and should
be constantly evaluated as development and growth continues to occur.

However, acquiring and developing park and recreational facilities is only
half the battle. Staffing and maintenance programs are also items that need
to be evaluated and accounted for, as they will make up a large portion of
an annual operational budget and will increase relative to the development
of new park and recreational amenities. Staffing and maintenance are just
as important to the success of a parks and recreation system as the facilities
themselves.

Park and recreational facilities provide people with places to relax, play and
enjoy life and their importance to people’s quality of life cannot be over
emphasized. The Town of Wellington recognizes this value and is on course
to provide it’s citizens with the park and recreations system they deserve for
