New platform lets your voice be heard

Weylin Ryan

If you’re a La Plata County resident, we want to hear from you.

Visit Durango’s new engagement platform, engage.durango.org, provides an online avenue for city and county residents to share their ideas and provide feedback regarding trail and public land usage, sustainability initiatives, itinerary recommendations and more. Community feedback plays a major role in our decision-making, and we wanted to create an approachable platform for residents to use. It is a work in progress and with your input and participation, the engagement platform will continue to evolve.

Community engagement helps Visit Durango identify the collective needs and priorities of our residents. Once you’ve created an account, you can browse through the various issues, topics and surveys that are available for participation and see the results of previous postings. You can also submit your own ideas and proposals for consideration. We will periodically share information and updates about current initiatives, as well as seeking feedback on proposed projects.

Getting started is easy. Just head over to engage.durango.org and create an account. Simply provide your first name, last name and email address. You may also use your Google or Facebook account to register. Only your name is visible to others on the site. There are also additional optional questions, which can be used to help make sure we are getting feedback from a diverse representation of county residents. Once you are registered, you can start browsing through the various topics, or submit your own ideas and proposals.

All of the feedback and input we receive through engage.durango.org will be compiled and used to inform decision-making by Visit Durango staff members, the board of directors and local partner organizations. None of this information will be given to outside entities or sold.

Community engagement is an important part of our work, and we want to make sure that we are responsive to the needs and priorities of our residents. All constructive feedback is welcome. We look forward to hearing from you.

Weylin Ryan is the sustainability and policy manager at Visit Durango.
