The Town of Basalt recently passed Ordinance No. 20, Series of 2019 which identified leash-free areas for dogs in the Town of Basalt; see the link for designated leash-free areas.
Section 2 of the Ordinance states:
Off-Leash Areas. Pursuant to Section 7-139(h) of the Basalt Municipal Code, the Town Council hereby designates the following properties as areas where dogs at large are permitted:
However, dogs must be on leash during any special event which has been approved through a special event activity permit or Town resolution such as BaSalsa, Sunday Market, Community Picnic, and the High Schools Color Run unless the Town's approval specifically provides for dogs off leash.
The Town shall post notice of these “off-leash” areas at each site. Each dog must be accompanied by (and within sight and hearing distance of) its owner or keeper.
The Town Manager has authority to establish guidelines for the use of these “off-leash” areas. The multi-use nature of these areas is to be maintained.
