Mountain Area Master Plan

The City of Steamboat Springs has developed a draft Mountain Area Master Plan (MAMP). The draft plan was informed by broad community participation and guided by a 13-member Advisory Committee.

The draft MAMP revises the most recent master plan for the Mountain Area, adopted in 2005. While much has changed in the past 17 years, much of the development and redevelopment in the Mountain Area that was previously anticipated has yet to materialize. The success of the Mountain Area is critical to the long-term vitality and resiliency of our entire community.

The draft plan identifies as a series of “Big Moves” – a new generation of public and private investments designed to enhance the Mountain Area’s identity, economic vitality, and the ease of travel to and within the area. The Mountain Area Master Plan also looks beyond major capital improvements and suggests a series of adjustments to existing codes, policies and standards to better reflect current conditions, trends and community priorities.

    All of the engagement we've done for the Master Plan so far has led us to understand some of the Mountain Area's key issues, and begin to think about how to solve them.

    So, who did we talk to, and what data did we collect to inform these problems and solutions? Take a look at the left column in the graphic below.

    • Steamboat Springs Transit
    • City Council
    • Main Street Steamboat
    • Steamboat Creates
    • Ski Corps
    • Yampa Valley Sustainability Council
    • Steamboat Chamber of Commerce
    • Mountain Village Partnership (Mountain Area business owners)
    • Local developers

    What a crazy time to be kicking off a project! Although virtual engagement has been a critical input tool for the past few decades, it hasn’t been the only allowable way to engage the public. The news changes every day – and we’re hopeful that we’ll get to have in-person meetings and interviews soon. But in the meantime, we’re excited to take advantage of folks being stuck at home and scrolling through Facebook to get some input on the identity, mobility and economic vitality of the Steamboat Springs Mountain Area. Be sure to keep checking back to this page for new ways to engage virtually!
