The biennial Community Survey is now open, and we are inviting all residents, employees, guests, and community members to weigh in on Town needs and priorities. The 2019 edition is the 5th iteration of a community-wide survey, and it solicits feedback on a wide range of issues, including satisfaction with Town services, quality of life, workforce housing, composting, and priorities for future capital projects. 

The survey should only take roughly 10 minutes to complete, and responses are kept anonymous. Please complete the survey before Sunday, July 14th. To say thank you for your time, respondents can enter to win some great prizes, such as JAS Labor Day festival tickets.

Bear Aware

Be Bear Aware

Bears are Back


Snowmass Village is in prime black bear habitat, and with a lot of snow still in the high country, we are witnessing heightened bear activity in town. Please be sure to secure your garbage, lock your doors, and remove food from your vehicles or patios. It could save a bear's life. 

Bear Aware Tips:
  • Use wildlife resistant garbage containers, and keep them in a secured area until trash day.
  • Keep all pet food within your home or in a secure container, and feed pets inside.
  • Do not use bird-feeders in the summer or fall.
  • Thoroughly clean barbecue grills after each use.
  • Avoid the use of citronella and scented candles, which can attract bears.
  • Keep windows and doors locked.
  • Never feed wildlife, of any type.

Community Garden

Growing Veggies and Community

New Community Garden Opened June 7th


The new Community Garden at Cathy Robinson Park is now open. The garden was built by the Town of Snowmass Village to replace the garden that was displaced by the expansion of the new fire station on Owl Creek Road. It consists of 27 plots ranging in size from 20 square feet to 30 square feet, and provides community members the opportunity to grow organic produce who otherwise would not have the space to do so.

The community garden also supports the Town Council's strategic goals of community building, resiliency, and environmental sustainability. The fencing was even constructed out of reused materials from the old rodeo ground bleachers in an effort to promote and showcase sustainable practices.

Noxious Weeds

Noxious Weed Season

Help Prevent the Spread of Invasive Weeds

The Town works hard with landowners and Pitkin County to prevent noxious weeds from spreading, but we can't do it alone. Everyone should take part in healthy land management, and the Town believes in assisting landowners to achieve this. The most effective way for you to help is to treat your own property, and there are numerous resources to help you get started.
