Minturnites share hopes for future

Daily staff report
Minturn, CO Colorado

MINTURN, Colorado” People at a Minturn, Colorado town meeting Thursday night said they wanted to see more community involvement, like concerts, bike rallies and more control of the Minturn Market.

One focal point of the evening was making the town more walkable. Several people said they’d like to see more paths and a downtown that has businesses that encourage people to walk to, and for visitors to explore.

The Minturn Planning Department is updating the town’s community plan, which will be used as an advisory document for the town’s future. Residents also discussed improving on Minturn’s good qualities, capitalizing on its potential and not making the same mistakes it has in the past.

The Planning Department will take Thursday night’s feedback and refine it into an executive summary that will be brought before the public again next month. Then, it will go to the Town Council for endorsement.

The next meeting to review the input from the meeting will be held at 6 p.m., March 26 at Town Hall.
