The Steamboat Springs Area Community Plan was written in 2004, with a supplement written in 2014. It has been 15 years since Steamboat thoroughly engaged in a conversation and developed a vision for our town. Towns evolve, new approaches to town planning exist, and technologies have changed considerately since 2004. New forces are at work, including climate change.

We need to have a concerted effort to update the long range vision of our town, and all the elements and discussions that go along with that.
