The City of Durango promotes Best Management Practices in the stewardship of City lands to ensure the safe enjoyment of parks and open spaces in the community. The City has contracted with a third party provider for noxious weed abatement. Applications are conducted to improve the quality of the right-of-ways, parks and open spaces in the City’s system. The weed control is repeatedly tested and approved by the Environmental Protection Agency and third party provider services are licensed by the Colorado Department of Agriculture.
