Entryway to Snowmass
Where Exactly is the Entryway?
What is known as the entryway site is the area along Brush Creek Rd. just after the intersection of Brush Creek and Highline Rd. It currently includes the rodeo grounds, Snowmass Village Recreation Center, among additional amenities.

TOSV_EntryWayPlanning_FullView_thumb.jpgBackground on Entryway Planning
In 2003 staff, Town Council, and the community hired a consultant team and began planning and designing for construction of the entryway. Once the conceptual "Entryway Master Plan" was refined, design and construction of the Recreation Center and Pool began in August of 2005. Entryway planning and construction continued for the next 3 years.

Before the economic down turn the intent was to complete the last phase of the entryway site which included the "Rodeo Arena Area" and the "Visitor Center Site." However Town Council put these efforts on hold in early 2008 due to the economic recession. Since 2008 the entryway project has been listed in the Town’s Capital Improvement Program.

Potential Program Elements
Potential program elements for the Rodeo Arena area and the Visitor Center site were identified through the 2009 Entryway Master Plan, the 2007 Community Survey, the 2010 Comprehensive Plan, and ideas suggested by Council and staff.

Framing the Current Discussion

Results from the 2013 Community Survey helped the Town refine our understanding of community priorities related to the site. These priorities will be used to drive conceptual plans for further discussion with community stakeholders.

Next Steps
Entryway planning resumes through a series of community meetings in summer, 2014 available on our Town Meeting Calendar. After concepts are developed, funding and phasing options will be explored to build on the year round vitality of the Snowmass Village entryway.
