The community is invited to participate in a discussion about the downtown plan during the July Steamboat Conversations from 5pm to 7pm on Thursday, July 12, at the Steamboat Art Museum (801 Lincoln Avenue).
In addition to the Conversations Session, Planning & Community Development will host a morning workshop from 8AM to10AM, also at the Steamboat Art Museum. Both sessions are free and individuals can stop by for as long as they like during either or both sessions.
During Steamboat Conversations, Planning & Community Development Director, Tyler Gibbs, along with Design Workshop, the city’s consultant on this project, and Lisa Schlichtman, editor of the Steamboat Pilot & Today, will welcome participants and then attendees will participate at their leisure in three key topic discussions at stations around the museum concerning the issues and opportunities with downtown.
Downtown Steamboat Springs is the heart and soul of the community. It plays a critical role in hosting visitors year-round, while providing residents a place to work, live, shop, dine, play and connect. How do we protect its unique characteristics, history and authenticity while ensuring a thriving downtown in the future? The goal of the Downtown Plan is to define what is valued and successful for downtown today and in the future; while developing a long-range vision for downtown with implementation strategies.
Steamboat Conversations is hosted quarterly by the Steamboat Pilot & Today and the July edition is being held in partnership with City of Steamboat Springs. The previous two Steamboat Conversations have addressed special events and addiction, treatment and recovery.
