Black Dragon Development of Crested Butte to Lead Library Construction Project


Gunnison County, Colo – The Gunnison County community worked hard to build a new vision for public library services and facilities. Under the leadership of the Board of County Commissioners, Gunnison County and the Gunnison County Library District continue to support the community’s vision. 

Following a competitive process, Black Dragon Development of Crested Butte has been selected to serve as Construction Manager and General Contractor for the construction of a new public library. Black Dragon Development has a proven track record of successfully delivering commercial construction projects in the Gunnison valley.

The new library will serve all residents and visitors of Gunnison County and be located on over five acres in the City of Gunnison, at the corner of Spencer Avenue and 11th Street. The property, along with $1M, was donated by Raymond P. VanTuyl to support construction of a new public library. The project’s total construction budget is $8M. Preliminary work will take place on the site this summer with a formal groundbreaking in spring 2021. 

For more information about this project, contact Gunnison County Manager, Matthew Birnie, mbirnie@gunnisoncounty.org or Gunnison County Library District Executive Director, Drew Brookhart, drew@gunnisoncountylibraries.org.
