Town of Silverthorne Comprehensive Plan Update
Norris Design has been working closely with the Town of Silverthorne for the past seven months to update the Town’s 2014 Comprehensive Plan. The Plan addresses land use, transportation, community design, growth and economic development, while also providing community vision, goals and policies, a future land use map, downtown and Gateway blueprints, and recommended implementation actions for the years ahead. The planning process included extensive community engagement through an online survey, two outdoor summer community events, a community open house, and opportunities to gather input from Town leadership and decision makers.
The process also included a half-day Gateway District design charette with Town staff and key stakeholders. Key themes addressed in the updated Plan include short-term rentals in traditional neighborhoods, the need for more high-density workforce rental housing, connectivity throughout downtown and safe pedestrian crossings along Highway 9 and engagement of the Blue River in the community design. The updated plan supports the Town’s ongoing efforts to create a vibrant community for local residents with more cultural events, restaurants and local businesses.Learn More About the Silverthorne Comprehensive Plan Update
