Durango Sustainability Plan
Sustainability Plan Update
The City of Durango is in the process of creating a new Sustainability Plan for our community.
In May 2020, a Sustainability Working Group comprised of representatives from local stakeholder organizations and members of existing Boards and Commissions was formed to guide the Sustainability Plan process. A preliminary draft framework for the plan was presented to the public for feedback in the summer of 2021. Materials and media from these meetings can be seen below.
Feedback from public participation and meetings with city staff was incorporated into a final draft Sustainability Plan.
The final draft plan was presented to City Council at the May 17, 2022 Study Session. A recording can be found on the city's YouTube channel.
Pending review from City Council and incorporating final feedback, the plan will be presented to City Council for formal adoption at the June 7, 2022 Council meeting.
Public feedback can be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org through Wednesday, May 25, 2022.

2015 Municipal Sustainability Action Plan
The City of Durango Municipal Sustainability Action Plan (SAP) was adopted in 2015, setting out the City's commitment to "Improving the quality of life for the citizens of our community by systematically, creatively and thoughtfully utilizing environmental, human and economic resources in a manner that maintains the unique character of our community for the benefit of present and future generations."
The SAP has served as an umbrella document for the organization-wide integration of sustainability, and establishes actions in ten overarching objective areas:
- Civic Engagement
- Community Design
- Resiliency and Preparedness
- Quality of Life
