Vision 2030 seeks community input

Vision 2030 Citizens' Committee is seeking community input about "heart and soul" aspects of the Routt County region. These aspects define the character of our community. Identifying them is vital to updating recommendations from the 1994 Vision 2020 Report and successfully stewarding our values from one generation to the next.
