PlanCOS, the City's Comprehensive Plan
PlanCOS is organized around six vision themes reflecting the primary focuses articulated through citizen, public official, and administrative staff engagement—Vibrant Neighborhoods, Unique Places, Thriving Economy, Strong Connections, Renowned Culture, and Majestic Landscapes. The plan identifies keystone indicators and strategies for achieving key priorities which support the vision themes. Additionally, six key projects and implementation strategies are identified—all of which have seen movement.
PlanCOS received a coveted Honor award from the Colorado Chapter of the American Planning Association at the 2019 Chapter Conference held in Snowmass Village, Colorado. Chapter Awards recognize outstanding plans and people of the planning profession, and are honored on the basis of their innovation, ability to provide transferable lessons to other communities, excellent quality, promotion of community progress and the public good, and other unique factors that make them exemplary.
