Planning Department

As set forth in the Town's Master Plan, the community vision for Telluride is a unique place where inspired, creative participation by all residents takes place. This vision:

  • promotes a diverse, vibrant community
  • protects and restores the natural environment
  • fosters a healthy economy
  • preserves and enhances the built environment

These planning principles serve as a guide to our department during the development review process. We work to ensure that new buildings, renovations or other constructed improvements respond to our community's shared values.
