Community Development


The Town of Mt. Crested Butte has published the revised Draft of the Mt. Crested Butte Master Plan.

The Mt. Crested Butte Town Council will have their final consideration and approval of the Mt. Crested Butte Master Plan scheduled for the Tuesday, January 17, 2023, Town Council meeting.

The Draft Master Plan outlines a path to increase affordable housing, improve the existing multimodal transportation networks, increase the vibrancy and vitality of the base area, expand access to essential services, and how we can guide responsible growth to meet the needs of our community. We want your comments on this plan to ensure that we are on track with how to move forward, together. 

Substantive changes to the plan include revisions to the draft Future Land Use Map. The map has been aligned with public comments and direction received at the October 17 work session with Town Council, Planning Commission, and the Downtown Development Authority.

Upcoming Meetings
The final draft will be considered by the Town Council on Tuesday, January 17, 2023, for final approval. You can join us in person at 911 Gothic Road, or online via zoom (link in the agenda packet). The meeting agenda will be posted on Friday, January 13, 2023.

If you have any questions regarding the plan, please reach out to Carlos Velado, Town Manager at or 970.349.6632 ext.117.  
Thank you for being a part of shaping the future of your community!
