On November 13th, we had our Fall Open House for the Basalt Master Plan. As part of the event, we had two interactive exercises: the Community Projects List Voting and Key Parcels Options Polling. We have tallied the totals to date - online results will be compiled separately. Scroll down to see what people said!

You will notice on the Community Projects List that there are numbers and letters next to some of the items. These projects have been 'geolocated', i.e. identified, on a map to help you better understand where that project improvement would take place. The Old Town map also shows several options for Midland Avenue streetscape improvements. Click on the images below to expand the maps.

We have been busy compiling the thousands of map comments, survey answers, post-it notes and other feedback from various avenues you provided to find out what YOU think about Basalt. Here is a graphic sneak peak of your top thoughts...



Open House #3 At Rocky Mountain Institute on May 30th had around 60 attendees. We did a live polling exercise and also presented key parcels of land for public input on what type of development would be preferred. Key parcel results can be found to the right (computer) or below (phone/tablet); click to expand. Upon arrival, participants reviewed what was heard from Open House #2, as well as process and background boards. Then the live polling was underway and it proved to be a fun and interactive exercise where attendees could see immediate results. The results from the live poll can be dowloaded by clicking on the image below:

Open House #2 at Basalt High School on May 9th got down into specifics. Upon arrival, participants were crowned Queen or King for the day and were asked to vote for the three (3) most important issues and spend some time brainstorming how they would solve them as an all powerful royal. Over 40 people attended and gave the following feedback. The following "word clouds" aggregate what participants submitted. The larger a word, the more often it was mentioned:


If you had one (1) word to describe Basalt, what would it be?

My biggest concern is that Eagle and Garfield county commissioners don’t have the sensitivity that our little slice of the Roaring Fork valley requires. Why must “sprawl” be the answer? We DO NOT live on I 70. Please adjust the PUD accordingly!

Tapping into the entrepreneurial communities. Dedicate a swanky contemporary designed space to start ups and meetings. a HUB where people can meet, rent office space, use a cool lounge, have a kitchenette. Support cafes with wifi, post 9pm spots.

Small Town, River, Recreation and redevelopment of the former Clark's market space resonate with me. The mid valley really needs a Rec Center with amenities for both adults and families. The Clark's Market space would be an amazing site for that!

I heard lots of "leadership" comments at the past event and would push back to the community to start leading instead of complaining. Make choices with your vote & dollars. Discuss issues and ask questions in a respectable manner and be open to change.
