 Town Council Adopts the 2023 Community Vision Plan

Living, dynamic plan to inform future Town of Telluride Comprehensive Plan

(January 10, 2023) – Telluride, CO --- Telluride Town Council has adopted the 2023 Community Vision Plan providing an aligned direction for the Town of Telluride to move forward into a Master Plan Process. The plan is an intentional road map to guide Telluride towards it's shared vision, principles of livability, and future goals. 

As established by the plan, "a Livable Telluride will remain a sustainable, authentic, and connected community. We are a small mountain town that embraces and sustains its distinctive natural setting, advances its reputation for innovation and cultural heritage, and remains true to its roots as a livable and genuine community for future generations of residents, workers, and visitors."

The Plan process has opened an opportunity to engage broadly with community members and identify shared values for what makes Telluride special and opportunities to address challenges in the future.

The Vision and Action Plan:

  • Reflects community values
  • Provides clear direction on future action
  • Creates a long-range vision to guide change and update the Master Plan
  • Informs future policy and budget
  • Organizes a shared understanding for the community vision

The 2023 Community Vision and Action Plan will help to inform the Town's upcoming Comprehensive Plan to be developed by the end of 2023 and can be found on the Town of Telluride's Engage Telluride website here

A former Victorian mining town in southwest Colorado’s San Juan Mountains, Telluride was incorporated in 1977 as a home-rule municipality. Set in a box canyon amid forested peaks at the base of the popular Telluride ski-and-golf resort, the town’s historic district houses landmarks like the Sheridan Opera House, a performing-arts venue originally built in 1913, and the Telluride Historical Museum, which showcases local history in a converted hospital built in 1896.
