Earlier this month, Elevation Outdoors named the Town of Winter Park as Colorado’s “Top Adventure Town” for the second year in a row. And they’re not the only ones taking notice of Winter Park. In recent years, Winter Park has become known as a desirable place for tourists to visit and for people to call home. But we couldn’t have gotten here on our own. Winter Park is a community focused on collaboration because we know it makes us stronger.
Over the past year, the Town of Winter Park has been engaging residents, business owners and other local stakeholders in an initiative called “Imagine Winter Park” to create a guiding plan for the next 10-15 years. From this process, four main pillars emerged that will help shape all future collaboration and projects. Implementation of this plan has already begun as partners are getting involved and $100 million in development investments have already been made, both from private and public entities.
Our Character & Culture
Retaining the Town’s eclectic character is important to our sense of place and quality of life. Our vision includes being a community with diverse cultures, economic opportunities, and architectural styles that foster a strong, unified and forward-thinking community.
Our Global & Local Connectivity
Physical and virtual connectivity is key in allowing people to thrive in Winter Park. Our goal is to create a community with seamless connectivity to Winter Park’s physical attributes, unique offers, and state-of-the-art technology.
Our World-Class Outdoor Recreation
Winter Park is firmly rooted in its relationship with the surrounding national forest, its trails, ski resort, narrow valley, and stunning views. This relationship is both the Town’s past and future, and it’s critical to have this outdoor focus at the forefront of every decision.
Our Healthy & Thriving Environment
As the Town grows and changes, the stresses on our surrounding natural environment will only increase. Our goal is to combat these challenges and create an outdoors community physically linked to a healthy and thriving natural and human environment.
“It’s amazing what we can accomplish when we work together,” commented Winter Park Mayor Jimmy Lahrman. “We’re fortunate that Winter Park is home to strong stakeholders that share a similar vision for the community’s future. And with a new Town Manager at the reigns, we’re ready to make that vision a reality. The new community brand and marketing effort was a great opportunity for those stakeholders to come together and find a new way to tell our story to the world.”
The community brand, “Colorado Unfiltered”, was unveiled on November 15. Moving forward, the Town will be working with the various partners to help roll out the new brand and continue to demonstrate how Winter Park is a desirable place to live and visit.
