Crestone Redevelopment Project (CRP)

The Crestone Redevelopment Project (CRP) is a partnership between ScSEED and the Town of Crestone to build capacity for renovating and redeveloping the streetscape within the downtown commercial district.  The Crestone Master Plan presents a preliminary vision for encouraging a pedestrian friendly downtown, which might include: sidewalks that include pedestrian supportive features such as benches, landscaping and signage; parallel parking along sidewalks; bicycle parking, etc.

 

Funding from the El Pomar Foundation and the Saguache County Board of Commissioners will enable ScSEED to work with the Town of Crestone on this exciting project.  Many thanks to these funders for supporting this project!!
