The Rio Blanco County Master Plan is the County's Comprehensive Plan, laying out the County's core values, guiding principles, and its priorities for the future. It is similar to Chaffee County in that it is a rural county with 2 main population centers with nearly 20% of its land use designated for agriculture and approximately 75% of its land use designated as public lands. In addition, agriculture, tourism and retail are important segments of the County's economy.
The plan covers issues such as agriculture, residential, commercial and industrial land uses, resource and open space protection, as well as infrastructure and capital improvements. There is also a pretty cool section on History/Heritage of Rio Blanco.
The Transportation section beginning on page 69 of the document covers roads, bicycle and pedestrian (trails) facilities, transit and public transportation, railroads, airports and scenic byways. (Telecommunications is handled in the Public Services and Facilities section.)
While this is a long document, the chapters of the document for Transportation are applicable to Chaffee County. Others in this network may be equally interested in the Housing, Economic Development and Public Services and Facilities portions of the document.
Of significance, the plan provides for implementation measures to help Rio Blanco get where it wants to be in the future.
