[ARCHIVED] Public Contemplates Mountain Area Plan Solutions

MAMP Survey NewsFlash

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, COLORADO-March 1, 2021-After nearly a year of public meetings, online sessions and advisory and stakeholder group discussions, the Mountain Area Master Plan is sharing potential action and recommendations under consideration during the next phase.

“We’re quite happy with the participation during the initial phase of the master plan,” commented Rebecca Bessey, Planning and Community Development Director. “As we enter the next stage, it’s imperative to gain as much input as possible on the solutions, which set the stage for future direction.”

During the community engagement portion, the plan will share findings, the key problems identified and potential solutions. In addition, feedback will be collected on all levels of support for possible solutions.  This phase will be open on through Sunday March 21. 

Topics ranged across a wide spectrum, but seven key themes surfaced during the process including Parking, Gondola Transit Center, Year-Round Vibrancy, Character of the Built Environment, Navigation & Mobility, Identity, and Funding.

A series of display boards on areas of interest outline the input and data collected. Each board focuses on what was heard, what was learned, key problems, and potential solutions & opportunities.

“As the mountain area ages, it’s important to have a defined vision, supported across the community, to shape where we go and what we would like to see,” continued Bessey.   “As well, the plan must protect the unique character of the community along with the Yampa Valley.”

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 June 2021. Find more information and take the survey at
