A shared vision for the development of Brown Ranch
The first task for the Steering Committee was to craft a vision for the development of the Brown Ranch.
After much spirited discussion and debate over several meetings, the group agreed on a vision for the development of Brown Ranch:
“The Brown Ranch residents will live and connect in a vibrant, resilient, diverse, and welcoming neighborhood that provides a wide variety of housing options and services designed by and for the Yampa Valley community.”
