Envision Chaffee County engages citizens to sustain and improve our quality of life and create the future the community wants as the county grows. The effort is urgently needed. County population grew 5.6% in just two years and will continue to expand as Colorado adds an expected 1.5 million new residents by 2030. Declining forest health is also a critical issue, with increasing risk of severe fire and impacts from recreation.

WHERE WE WORK.
ENVISION COMMUNITY ACTION PLAN
Envision Community Action Plan projects were developed over a year of planning in 2017-2018, through the participation of 1,500 citizens, 4 local governments, and 72 non-profit organizations, businesses and agencies. Fifth-generation ranchers, new residents, students, and retirees – our community – is building a future based on common ground.
Together, we developed a shared vision for Chaffee County’s future
and are working to towards that goal:
Our forests, waters, and wildlife are healthy and in balance with outdoor recreation.
Our community members are able to live locally and benefit from a resilient economy.
Our community remains friendly, engaged, and culturally connected.
We have sustainable agriculture, beautiful rural landscapes, and development focused in and around towns.
