2021 Multimodal Transportation Plan Update
The city of Durango launched the Multimodal Transportation Plan update in 2021 with public outreach to gather community feedback on the existing plan and transportation needs. Outreach included 8 virtual and in person neighborhood meetings, separate meetings with specific population groups, and event booths. Input was also received through 2 online surveys and an online comment map.
The city awarded a contract to a consultant in the fall of 2022 to assist with updating the plan. The drafting process started with a visioning meeting with the Multimodal Advisory Board. Audio from that meeting is available here.
The first draft of the updated plan is anticipated at the end of February 2023. Check back for public involvement opportunities.

Why an update in 2021?
2016 Multimodal Transportation Plan
The 2016 Multimodal Transportation Plan update was adopted by City Council on March 7, 2017 after a year of outreach, including a kickoff meeting and 12 additional public meetings. In addition to public meetings, a Virtual City Hall survey was used for a month to collect public comment. The survey garnered 207 visitors and 159 responses. The final document was updated based on feedback from City Council during the draft plan period and the City Council Study Session on December 13, 2016. The adopted 2016 Multimodal Transportation Plan Update was incorporated as an amendment to the 2012 Multi Modal Transportation Master Plan, which is an amendment to the City's 2007 Comprehensive Plan
The Plan prioritized over 450 projects, with a grand total project cost of over $160 million.
