Greenscape guidelines have been implemented throughout the Town of Telluride in order to establish and maintain right of way landscaping that meets the following goals:

  • Decrease air and water pollution. 
  • Increase street safety and functionality. 
  • Be aesthetically pleasing.  
  • Improve pedestrian safety and the pedestrian experience by increasing the separation between foot-travelers and motorized traffic. 
  • Soften the look of the right of way. 
  • Decrease the amount of impervious surface, preserving some area in the right of way for infiltration. 
  • Provide space for snow storage in winter.

The Environmental & Engineering Division monitors these areas along with other areas designated in the Streetscape Standards.
