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.
