Other Current Project Information:
Durango Mesa Area Plan
The City of Durango is initiating the development of an area plan for Durango Mesa, the property previously known as Ewing Mesa. With the assistance of the community, the City and its partners will identify future uses for the property that will focus on recreation, cultural amenities, open space and other public purposes consistent with the goals of the City’s 2017 Comprehensive Plan and the soon to be completed Parks, Opens Space, Trails and Recreation Master Plan. The plan will also incorporate the findings of the recently completed La Plata County Multi-Use Event Center Master Plan. Development of the Durango Mesa Area Plan is being funded through a generous $100,000 grant from the LOR Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to enhancing livability and quality of life in the Intermountain West.
Cundiff Park Planning & Design
Cundiff Park hosts the BMX track, a mountain bike beginner's pump track, the Animas River Trail and Animas River Access. Future development is proposed for Cundiff Park once Phase I of Durango Mesa Park has been completed, which consists of moving the BMX track up to the Durango Mesa Park.
