Why a Plan is being developed for the long-term vision of the St. Vrain
In September 2013, St. Vrain Creek experienced a catastrophic flood event. While local short-term solutions are being implemented, affected communities recognized the need to conduct long-term planning for the St. Vrain Creek at a watershed scale. Not only is watershed-scale planning important from a risk-reduction perspective, it is necessary in order to incorporate local needs and broader stakeholder interests (recreation, habitat preservation, etc.) into a long-term flood control and stream restoration approach.
For these reasons, various entities along St. Vrain Creek have formed the St. Vrain Creek Coalition (SVCC) in order to initiate a Master Plan for the watershed. The Master Plan will be used to guide the county, municipalities, and individual land owners in identifying and prioritizing stream rehabilitation and restoration projects. The goal of the master planning effort and subsequent project implementation is increased resilience in communities, economies, and river systems within the watershed.
