The Estes Foward Comprehensive Plan was adopted in late 2022, replacing the Estes Park Comprehensive Plan written in 1996.  The goals and policies are a critical step toward community resiliency themes including:  the natural environment, built environment, economy, housing, health and social, transportation and infrastructure. The plan also establishes future land use policies for the Estes Valley, with development guidelines for 10 distinct planning areas.
