About POST​​ 

The POST Committee is responsible for making recommendations to the Basalt Town Council for the planning of parks, trails, open space, and related projects.   ​

Current Projects

​2. Arbaney Park - Pool, playground, public restroom, pool energy efficiency improvements and other improvements to be phased in over time.

​3. Giving Garden - Development of policies for donations to Town Parks in lieu of bench and art donations.

​4. Basalt River Park - In anticipation of the Town acquiring an additional acre of parkland, POST is gearing up for a planning process which will actively include Town Council.

​5. Pitkin County Whitewater Park - POST is following Pitkin County's progress on the Whitewater Park design and will provide input as needed.
