Why Stay Engaged?

The Durango Districts Initiative is more than planning where buildings go on a grid, it’s about defining our future as a community. It’s about sharing, listening, collaborating and building a beautiful and livable vision for the future of Durango.  We know not everyone will agree on how to move forward, but we believe that having great productive conversations and fruitful exchange of ideas will make the vision better.
