Character building

The City of Durango is tackling the next district in its Durango Districts Initiative – the “College & 8th Character District.”

Next week, the city will host three workshops to share their ideas and gather input from residents on how the district will look heading into the future. All interested community members are invited to attend any of the sessions:

• 8:30 – 9:30 a.m., Mon., Dec. 3, Durango Joes (College Drive location)

• 1:30 – 2:30 p.m., Mon., Dec. 3, CJ’s Diner
• 5 – 7 p.m., Wed., Dec. 5, Park Elementary

The Durango Districts Initiative involves assessing and envisioning the future of 10 mixed-use districts through the community that have special “character-defining” traits with the goal of helping these areas reach their full potential. Through these community workshops, the city hopes to formulate plans that embrace, enhance and preserve each district’s unique character while providing a vision for the future.

For more information about the initiative, visit districts.durangogov.org or e-mail questions/comments to savannah.jameson@durango gov.org.
