The Brown Ranch Community Development Plan

Designed by the community, for the community.

The Community Development Plan

The Brown Ranch Community Development Plan begins with a description of the current housing challenges in Steamboat Springs, and the role Brown Ranch plays in addressing these challenges.

The plan itself consists of a summary chapter, followed by thematic chapters of each element of the plan: Neighborhoods & Blocks, Mobility, Open Space, Project Economics & Stewardship.

The Details section provides additional information about components of the plan for a deeper dive into the topic, and describes the community process that informed the plan.

The Appendix includes additional items that informed the work but are not specifically part of the plan.
