Comprehensive Creek Planning Initiative Update

Boulder County’s Comprehensive Creek Planning Initiative (CCP) is helping the county move forward with long-term creek recovery by initiating watershed-level master planning processes throughout the county. The master planning process is an open and collaborative effort among public agencies, property
