West Gunnison Neighborhood

Gunnison, CO

Located on the community's western edge, the West Gunnison Neighborhood is made up of approximately 200 acres of publicly and privately owned property. Containing the largest acreage of undeveloped land in the community, it represents an unmatched opportunity to create public-private partnerships that will benefit the community and create the potential for significant economic benefit to the owners of the property. 

Working together as a community, the West Gunnison Neighborhood Plan provides resources to create a framework for the successful development of public and private property. The plan also results in the development of such needed community assets such as open space, workforce housing, drainage and transportation improvements, and other community benefits. 

The West Gunnison Neighborhood plan is a four-part comprehensive program aimed at directing the future development of this unique area. The four program phases include: 
Initial Assessment & Analysis; Establish alternative development scenarios for the neighborhood and chose a preferred alternative concept; Refine the preferred alternative by establishing additional detail and assessing engineering and financial factors; and Create Implementation Strategies for the plan. 

Serving as the template for future development in our community, the plan presents an opportunity to encourage innovative and collaborative design and development.
