Registration is closed

The exceptional quality of life in Durango is world-renown. Durango is growing and there are abundant opportunities to be involved in shaping the future of this vibrant community. The City of Durango is leading the effort to focus and facilitate new investment to enhance Durango’s quality of life while also addressing community priorities around housing, employment, and cultural development.

The Durango Renewal Partnership (URA) is excited to host the Development Opportunities Forum in collaboration with the La Plata Economic Development Alliance and Downtown Colorado, Inc. to share information with prospective partners about existing and forthcoming development opportunities. The Forum is also a chance to share feedback about how the community can effectively facilitate development and redevelopment in priority areas.

Durango’s MidTown includes this area

There are multiple properties coming on the market within the City including:

  • Publicly-owned properties
  • Historically significant properties
  • Adaptive re-use opportunities

The City of Durango and the newly formed MidTown Urban Renewal Area are exploring partnership options for development of publicly-owned assets and are currently seeking to identify interested entities.  At the Forum we will discuss development incentives available, opportunities for public-private partnerships, and Durango’s investment climate including:

  • The newly-formed MidTown Urban Renewal Area
  • Other Urban Renewal programs 
  • Tax Increment Financing
  • Streamlined review processes
  • Other supportive actions including flexible design standards and fee offsets
  • Durango’s Opportunity Zones

What does that mean for you? 

The Forum is a chance to:

  • Discuss your development specialties and how they fit into Durango’s economic and community vision.
  • Development types and the City’s portfolio of available properties.
  • Provide input to the City and Durango Renewal Partnership regarding architectural, placemaking, and other contributions to the fabric of the community.
