2023 Comprehensive Plan Update

Alamosa County is updating our Comprehensive (Master) Plan

Comprehensive Planning seeks to engage community residents and stakeholders in a process of future-thinking - to determine what values and resources are important, determine priorities among competing needs and interests, and establish a framework of goals and actions to aid current and future decision making. Such effort assesses the current physical, social, and economic environments to establish a baseline community identity, builds community capacity, and informs adaptation / mitigation. Per statute and our planned approach, Alamosa County will include thoughtful analysis and conversations around attainable housing, economic development, social justice and equity, the planned expansion of the City of Alamosa and its overlap with infrastructure and development paradigms. Most importantly, as nothing can happen in the SLV without legally and physically adequate water supplies, a primary focus of our update will be a deep dive into water issues, building on 2022 Growing Water Smart.
