Jefferson County Open Space has recommended the county purchase 7 acres of residential-zoned vacant land adjacent to Elk Meadow Park for $600,000 and maintain it as a nature preserve.
The purchase has to be voted on and approved by the county commissioners.
The proposal was unveiled during a regular monthly meeting of the Open Space Advisory Committee in Golden on Sept. 4.
Most of the committee members agreed the land should be incorporated into Elk Meadow Park, although two voted against the purchase for cost reasons.
