[ARCHIVED] Don’t Miss Last Chair in Mountain Area Master Plan Survey

MAMA Last Chair NewsFlash

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, COLORADO-July 21, 2020-The city is calling last chair on three surveys as part of the Mountain Area Master Plan which looks to understand what the public’s interest is across three key areas – identity, economic vitality and mobility.  Individuals wishing to submit responses will have until Monday, July 27, when this phase of the Mountain Area Master Plan comes to an end.

“We’ve heard some great insights from people through the online process,” commented Senior Planner and Project Manager Julie Baxter. “However, the more input we get, the greater amount of data across diverse interests we’ll be able to draw from as we move toward a final plan.”

The three separate surveys are available online through and only take a few minutes to share what is important to you as well as the characteristics that people would like to see preserved. In addition to the surveys, individuals can share their thoughts by tagging the online map or providing ideas for the future.

The project looks to enhance the sense of place while complementing the goals and recommendations of other city plans. In addition, the process will identify specific, prioritized actions based on the analyses of existing conditions, issues, and opportunities, along with input from stakeholders and the public on priorities. The result will be an actionable implementation strategy, which is both aspirational and feasible, and is adaptable to changing future conditions for the mountain area.

The plan’s study area is the Steamboat Ski & Resort Corporation base area and the commercial properties and residential neighborhoods that surround it. The Mountain Area includes the land within the Urban Renewal Authority boundary to the east of US Highway 40 and within the Resort Residential (RR-1 and RR-2) and Gondola (G-1 and G-2) zone districts.

The city has partnered with Cushing Terrell (formerly CTA) and Connect One Design to lead the public engagement with the community and produce the Steamboat Springs Mountain Area Master Plan. The comprehensive process is anticipated to run through April 2021. Find information, submit opinions and ideas can be found at
