Thank You

The 2018/2019 Town of Vail Civic Area Plan was adopted on November 5, 2019 by a unanimous vote of Council.

On behalf of the Town of Vail and the Civic Area Plan project team, we would like to say thank you to the Vail community for a record level of public participation and community engagement. With over 750 active participants on Engagevail.com, in addition to ongoing involvement from stakeholder groups, adjacent property owners, and public input at open houses and meetings, we achieved a record level of community engagement in a master plan process.

Thanks also to our project team including 4240 Architects, Braun Associates Inc, Trestle Strategy Group, Economic Planning Systems, and Russell + Mills.

Next steps in the implementation process include in-depth market feasibility analyses for certain uses detailed in the three options contained in Chapter 3 of the 2018/2019 Vail Civic Area Plan and site-specific design work for the Charter Bus Lot, Dobson Ice Arena, and the Municipal Site.

    Update to Council - Next Tuesday, April 2nd
    Since our last update to Council on February 19, 2019, the project team has taken the key themes from the first public engagement window and created various design concepts to illustrate ideas for how these themes could work on each of the five sites in the study area.

    The ideas presented to Council will provide visualizations of possible improvements in response to community input and in doing so foster further discussion of the Civic Area. An introductory discussion of market and financial considerations will also be presented next Tuesday by Economic Planning Systems. This presentation will provide background information for the next steps in the planning process.
