Camino Del Rio Character District Planning Study

Durango, Colorado

The City of Durango is undertaking an ambitious, multi-year character district planning process to create a framework of coordinated district plans that define the unique character of each district and provides a vision for the future. This included the development of character district renderings from a macro to micro view, analyzing existing development code language for these Districts, producing conceptual visualizations of potential redevelopment and public projects, as well as translating existing City policy documents into amendments to the Land Use and Development Code.

The purpose of the character renderings is to give form to the massing’s studies and how the scenarios can take on a Durango specific character uniting the district with main street and the overall sense and place of the city.
