Master Plans for Downtown Evergreen


Click Here for Master Plans      The Evergreen Trails Master Plan was funded through a grant from Great Outdoors Colorado to establish the vision of a connected, cohesive trail network in the core of the Evergreen community. The Plan details a network of trails and on-street bike and pedestrian facilities that link Evergreen’s parks, open space, schools, community assets, the Evergreen Lake and downtown Evergreen. The network and prioritized improvement projects increase mobility and recreational options for the community; improve access, safety and comfort; and retain the flexibility to facilitate near-term and long-term phased implementation of key projects.

The desired outcomes of the study were to:

  • Build community understanding and support for bike, pedestrian and trail connectivity

  • Identify feasible, implementable, fundable projects for improvement

  • Prepare for construction funding opportunities


    The Master Plan study process kicked-off in Spring of 2014 and ran through the summer of 2015. A Technical Working Group (TWG) consisting of staff from Jefferson County and Denver Mountain Parks, Evergreen Parks and Recreation District, Downtown Evergreen Economic District and key community stakeholders convened throughout the process and guided the development of the Plan. Public input was gathered through online questionnaires and comment tools, numerous stakeholder interviews and three public open houses.


    The project Study Area (Figure 1) extends from the Safeway on Hwy 74 on the north, along Hwy 73 past the Evergreen Library to the south, beyond Downtown Evergreen to the east and to the Evergreen Golf Course and Wilmot Elementary School to the west. The Study Area includes destinations such as the Evergreen Lake and Lake House, the Hiwan Homestead Museum, Downtown Evergreen, Evergreen High School, Wulf Recreation Center, Wilmot Elementary School and the Evergreen Library.


    The Master Plan was reviewed by the members of the Downtown Evergreen Economic Development Board, the project Technical Working Group and Jefferson County staff and finalized in Fall of 2015. The Evergreen Trails Master Plan will assist the Downtown Evergreen Economic District and Jefferson County Staff with future grant opportunities to implement the project improvements and enable Evergreen to increase the number of safe, reliable
