The City of Durango is facing severe budgetary cuts and will be asking for feedback to determine the priorities of City residents. The four-month process will begin March 1 and is an opportunity to let the City know where you want our local government to focus time and resources.

I hope you will join me in supporting any efforts to improve and maintain our transit system, including our bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure! I believe that one of the keys to ensuring Durango continues to be a vibrant city in the future is having a modern transit system that includes a connected network of bike lanes, bike paths, and sidewalks.

Please read the letter below from Assistant City Manager Amber Blake to learn more.


Good Morning!

As one of our engaged citizens, I wanted to reach out to you to make sure that you were aware of an upcoming family-friendly public engagement opportunity.

The City of Durango is seeking your participation in a community conversation and process. This process will take place over the next 4 months, and is an opportunity to share your priorities, values, and vision to help guide the future of the City. This conversation and process will be multi-faceted and will build upon the input that we receive throughout.

The Kick-Off Open House will be Thursday, March 1st from 5-7 PM at the Durango Public Library. (This event is family friendly and light refreshments will be served.)

More information and updates on the process can be found at If you have questions please feel free to call me at 970-375-5005. I have attached a flyer with additional dates and more information.

Your input and participation have been invaluable in the past and I hope to see you on March 1st, please bring your friends and family.

Thank you,

Amber Blake
