Project Summary:

Great Ecology prepared a planning document to encapsulate a long-range vision for potential recreation and habitat restoration opportunities within and near the Town of Rico, Colorado. Within the framework of this vision, the Town of Rico can utilize this planning tool to strategize ways to catalyze economic and community revitalization as well as to identify mutually beneficial opportunities with potential project partners and stakeholders. The study and its recommendations complement and align with portions of the 2004 Town of Rico Regional Master Plan. Great Ecology’s role included data gathering, site analysis, program definition, field reconnaissance, and onsite meetings, culminating in the development of the Town of Rico, Colorado Land Use Study & Conceptual Plan. The plan was completed in 2020.
