Following a nearly year-long process, the City of Glenwood Springs is excited to share the draft comprehensive plan update for the next round of public comment. Community members are invited to view the full draft document and share input via the comment form by January 6, 2023. Links to the draft document and the comment form can be found on the project webpage at www.cogs.us/VisionGlenwood. All are welcome to submit comments.

City staff will review the comments and make final revisions to the draft document before it goes before the Planning & Zoning (P&Z) Commission for review and recommendation. Comment form responses will also be shared with P&Z and City Council during the adoption hearing process after the project team has considered changes to the draft based on community feedback. All written comments submitted throughout the process are viewable in the appendix of the draft plan and were considered during the drafting process.

The update weaves together thousands of comments and an in-depth analysis of existing conditions in Glenwood Springs. The Comprehensive Plan acts as a roadmap for Glenwood Springs’ future, so the aim of the update is to articulate the shape and direction for our shared vision in a practical planning document.

“City planners will use this document as we manage long range planning projects and review development applications,” said Long Range Principal Planner Jim Hardcastle. “The update provides guidance from Glenwood residents and stakeholders surrounding our strategies, goals and priorities while including flexibility for continuing community conversations around our city’s challenges and opportunities.”

The document includes information about the process, community context, vision, goals, ten planning element chapters and an implementation plan. The planning element chapters are:

  • Land Use & Growth Management 
  • Community Character & Vitality
  • Economic Development & Tourism
  • Transportation & Mobility 
  • Housing 
  • Public Utilities & Services 
  • Parks, Recreation, Open Space & Trails
  • Natural Resources 
  • Cultural Resources & the Arts 
  • Climate & Hazards

Within each planning element chapter there are strategies which represent methods for how we can achieve the plan goals and advance priorities. Under strategies are actions which are specific tasks represents a step required to implement the goals and strategies.
