On Wednesday, April 6th, 4:00 – 6:00 p.m., the City of Durango will host a public open house at the Durango Public Library (1900 E. 3rd Avenue).  The open house will showcase and seek community input on seven finalist public art proposals.  Public comments will be used to assist the art selection committee in determining the three new works of art that will become part of the City’s collection of public art.  Community members unable to attend the open house are invited to use Virtual City Hall to view the sculptures and provide feedback.

The City released a national Call to Artists in October 2015, requesting proposals for original three-dimensional works of art for three outdoor locations throughout Durango.  Artists were invited to submit one or more existing sculptures for consideration by the selection committee.  The expected budget for each of the three sculptures is $5,000 - $8,000 with a total budget of $24,000.   The City received more than 117 proposals from across the country. 

A decision is expected in mid-April, and installation will occur in early summer.

Although the local economy has recovered from the Great Recession, the City continues to address capital improvement projects and maintenance that were deferred during the Recession.  One such need that has not been addressed is that of City facilities.  The City of Durango has several newer buildings that are functioning well because of significant community investment – including the Community Recreation Center, Transit Center, and the Durango Public Library.  But, there are numerous other facilities that are more than 30 years old and have been converted to City use from another purpose. 

This survey asks for input concerning potential sources of funding to address facility needs.

The City of Durango has released a draft North Main Avenue Corridor Mobility Plan for public review. In early May, the City partnered with Alta Planning + Design and New Mobility West in a public process which gathered input on how to improve mobility in and across the North Main corridor. Over 200 people participated in the process at a variety of stakeholder meetings, site visits, and a community meeting.

The Plan provides an analysis of the corridor’s existing conditions and specifically points to areas where infrastructure improvements could increase pedestrian and bicycle connections to adjacent neighborhoods, businesses, and community amenities. The Plan emphasizes making the corridor more accessible for all different modes of transportation. The Plan also presents concepts for the re-design of three major intersections in the North Main corridor. The City, in partnership with the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT), is planning to use the recommendations in this Plan to guide the design and construction of improvements that could take place as soon as 2016.

The City is now encouraging interested citizens to review the draft Plan and provide comments.  Click here to access the survey.
