The community is invited to provide feedback on four design concepts for Downtown Main Avenue via an online questionnaire available through Friday, March 18. The questionnaire is available in English and Spanish.
Downtown’s Next Step is an effort to shape a renewed vision for the streetscape and public spaces along Main Avenue between 5th and 14th streets, including patios, sidewalks, street trees and other landscaping, bicycle facilities, vehicle lanes and parking crosswalks.
“We have already had a large response to the questionnaire,” said Savannah Lytle, planner with the City of Durango. “It’s clear our community has a deep connection to downtown Durango. We are extending the deadline to allow residents time to engage in this process to plan thriving, inclusive and accessible spaces on Downtown Main Avenue.”
The design concepts were developed based on community feedback from a questionnaire Dec. 16 through Jan. 7. The project team used the questionnaire results and discussions with a stakeholder group to form a vision statement and designs for Downtown Main Avenue.
The project team will use feedback from the second questionnaire to create a preferred conceptual design for Downtown Main Avenue. The community will then be asked for feedback on the preferred design.
