Envisioning The Future of Downtown Basalt

The local community has taken the lead in imagining and designing downtown Basalt. Anyone who was interested took a map and drew their ideas of what downtown, its parks and trails, should be. The results of this public input process will be reflected in an action plan to make the community’s vision happen.
