The PPORA Board of Directors is responsible for all PPORA Stewardship Fund allocations, agreements and implementation.
Within the first five years, the PPORA Stewardship Fund aims to annually complete three types of stewardship efforts.
In prioritized order these include
Pre and post-race sustainable trail restorations on all race venue trails,
Sustained trail maintenance on the multi-use regional system via partnerships, funding manpower and/or other means,
Partnering with others to achieve long-term visionary regional trail system connectivity.
An Advisory Panel will formulate recommendations for consideration and action by the PPORA BOD. The Panel makeup, envisioned as a group of diverse stakeholders, will be recommended by the APEX race administrator, APEX Board representative, and PPORA Stewardship Fund chair each year for review and approval by the PPORA Executive Director.
All Advisory Board project recommendations must
Be tangible, ‘do-able” projects benefiting the area’s citizens,
Meet the PPORA Stewardship Fund Vision, Commitments and Goals,
Demonstrate benefit to the current and or future APEX venues, and
Include an implementation strategy, budget and timeline.
Recommendations to the PPORA BOD will be coordinated by the PPORA Stewardship Fund chair for selection/approval and funding allocation.
The PPORA Stewardship Fund will be funded by a percentage of gross income from The Pikes Peak APEX, all post- APEX event remaining funds, and other fundraisers and grants.
