Wednesday, October 01, 2014, 3:00pmBeginning in the mid 2000’s the owner of Crested Butte Mountain Resort began a collaborative process of planning for a new “Town Center”.

Initial phases are complete and many lessons have been learned. Learning Objectives: 1. Working within a public-private framework in community building 2. Innovative ways for small town to manage complex development projects 3. The considerations needed when balancing resort/tourism objectives with broader community objectives in resort-oriented communities 4. Steps to promote good design outcome while allowing flexibility in implementation Outline: Upon arrival at Mr. Crested Butte, the group would hear a brief overview of the context within which the project was started. Panelists for this session include the Town Manager for Mt. Crested Butte, the Planning Director for Crested Butte Mountain Resort and the planning consultants for each party. Each will provide some context to the background of the project. In particular the role that the transit center played in the conceptualization of town center will be discussed in some detail. Walking around the Town Center area the team will introduce elements of how the process evolved to address parking, architectural form, public accessibility to the mountain, etc. Key stops on the tour will include the main public plaza, the snowfront, parking area, service area, etc. The goal will be to tie the physical outcome back to the planning and development process and communicate how the interactions between public-private sector happened. This will include discussions on the establishment of the PUD guide for the Project and the continuing role of the Downtown Development Authority on addressing design standards. To conclude the tour, the panelists will discuss the overall master plan and where it is headed. Questions will be encouraged throughout the tour.
