Durango was recognized for conservation, development of amenities such as the Animas River Trail, its sustainability and community envolvement.
As a result of 2 designated sales taxes approved by voters in 1999 and 2005, the citgy has developed the river trail, the Durango Community Recreation Center and has preserved 2,639 acres of open space, including 1,128 acres acres acquired since 2005.
Solar panels installed at the Recreation Center have saved 60 metric tons of years emissions. The rec center also uses energy efficent light bulbs to reduce is annual natural gas and electricity consumption by 16 percent. Now that's conservation at work.
The city has collaborated with community groups such as Trails 2000 and the Durango Winter Sports Association to develop more than 100 miles of natural surface trails and to improve skiing conditions at Chapman Hill.
We're proud of our community and can help you be a part of it. Visit us at:

Looking back on the past quarter the big news is the decline in the number of homes available on the market. During the summer months there were 18% fewer homes on the market in La Plata County. We consider this to be a healthy trend. During the recession our housing inventory was very high. As the number of homes sold has increased (up 15% from the prior year)combined with the decrease in supply, the market is moving to stability. Influenced by record low interest rates and low prices, the number of buyers for primary homes is increasing. In addition, investors are back. The median price continues to decline; but with demand rising and supply declining, the median price will eventually firm and the move upward.
