The plan was initiated to help guide management and decision-making in response to several issues. These include a natural decline in the output of thermal water from the big spring; working with the 19 lease holders in the park, including concessionaires, and community and government entities; traffic flow; and parking. The plan includes provisions for investigating policy modifications to improve mineral water flow, as well as balancing the use of thermal water to ensure the viability of the natural geological feature of travertine terraces, as well as availability for soaking and therapeutic pools. Other elements of the plan include trail development to provide connections to downtown and natural areas along with improvements along the river’s edge. #springcity #news
