Parks, Recreation & Open Space Advisory Board (PROSAB)

Nederland Trails Community Survey

Members of the Parks, Recreation, and Open Space Advisory Board (PROSAB) request your participation in the Nederland Trails Community Survey. This is the first step in revising the 2015 update of the Nederland Area Trails Master Plan – the document that guides PROSAB, Public Works, and the Board of Trustees in maintaining and developing the Nederland Trail System. Our trails are critical infrastructure for many of our needs and goals, including alternative transportation, sustainability, health, and recreation.

Your input will be invaluable in crafting a Plan that serves both residents and visitors to our Town – take the survey today!


The mission of the Parks, Recreation & Open Space Advisory Board (PROSAB) is to maintain the Town of Nederland and Surrounding Areas Open Space, Trails, Parks and Outdoor Recreation Master Plan in conformance with the Town vision and the direction of the Town of Nederland Board of Trustees, to work to implement the Plan through its own initiative and through cooperation with and support of community organizations in coordination with town resources, to work to see that all projects that fall under the scope of the Plan conform to it and integrate harmoniously with one another and to advise the Board of Trustees and educate the public on matters concerning the Plan and its implementation.


PROSAB meetings are held the third Thursday of each month at the Nederland Community Center at 7:00 pm. All meetings are open to the public.
