Bid Title: Development of a Subarea Master Plan
Category: Administration
Status: Closed


Request for Proposals for the Development of a Subarea Master Plan.

Gunnison County and the City of Gunnison have prioritized the development of the north Gunnison subarea (as described in the City of Gunnison’s 2030 Comprehensive Plan) for future development and potential annexation. The area is located along State Highway 135 and is experiencing increasing development pressure. The City and the County are seeking to create a plan that reflects the community values of avoiding sprawl and supporting development patterns that are similar to those within the city limits. The Comprehensive Plan states, “The North Gateway Subarea largely defines the area where the City will consider annexation and incremental growth within the three-mile area. Should parcels in the North Subarea be annexed into the City, their land use and zoning designations should reflect similar use and level of intensity to adjacent land uses currently within the municipal boundary.”
