The Stewardship Framework is a collaborative effort between several city departments, the Colorado Chautauqua Association (CCA) and a consultant team, and is a result of the CCA's "Chautauqua 2020 Plan" that was brought to the city in February 2011 - Joint Proposal Stewardship Framework. The overall purpose of the Stewardship Framework is to establish a shared understanding and approach to Chautauqua's stewardship through which potential changes to facilities and adjacent historic areas can be considered. It also seeks to lay the foundation for continued success of the Colorado Chautauqua through coordination of uses and shared management philosophy and practice between the city and the CCA.

The Colorado Chautauqua Association (CCA) provides an annual report to the city every year. The CCA also brought their strategic plan for the area ( Map) to the Boulder City Council in February and April of 2011 for input and consideration. This website provides information on the Chautauqua Park neighborhood, the CCA and their proposed strategic plan.
The CCA's mission is "to preserve, perpetuate and improve the site and spirit of the historic Chautauqua by enhancing its community and values through cultural, educational, social and recreational experiences."
The CCA developed a strategic plan, also known as "The Chautauqua 2020 Plan," to "ensure a sustainable and vibrant future for the Colorado National Historic Landmark's second century." The 2020 Plan incorporates the recommendations of the Chautauqua Park Cultural Landscape Assessment and Plan (CLA) completed in 2004 and the HVS 9-month Retreat Feasibility Study completed in 2005. Most of these documents are available on CCA's website. The CLA's advisory committee included representatives from the City of Boulder, neighbors and a team of experts in landscape architecture, civil engineering and transportation planning.
