The Basalt Community Campus (BCC) represents a collaborative and comprehensive approach to achieving a number of long-standing social, environmental, economic and community goals including public access to the river, a riverfront park, redefinition of the floodplain and the transformation of a prominent downtown corner location. DHM has been retained by both the Town of Basalt and The Roaring Fork Community Development Corporation to assist with master planning and land use approvals for this five acre parcel. Proposed uses for the parcel, in addition to a riverfront park, include a 75 room hotel, mixed use retail, commercial and office, a branch location for Colorado Mountain College, and a non-profit center to provide affordable rental space for vital community services. DHM is involved in all aspects of the process from community meetings and design to coordination with engineers and federal agencies for proposed development proposals. In the end, this project has the potential to offer the best of public/private partnerships resulting in new community based development and a riverfront park that will add immeasurably to the character and vitality of the Town of Basalt.
