Gilpin County Comprehensive Plan
DTJ prepared Gilpin County’s first Comprehensive Plan. With pandemic conditions in place, the project team seamlessly transitioned to virtual community outreach and engagement.
The Vision Statement reveals pride of place, a forward-thinking future, and resulted in three strategies for sustainable growth:
- Encourage a mix of uses
- Concentrate development in small nodes called village
- Predetermine and manage growth for predictability and flexibility
The interdisciplinary planning team worked collaboratively with the community to reach consensus for a proactive strategy to intentionally manage the inevitable development in an orderly fashion, with measures in place to protect the natural environment and beautiful mountain views.
