The planning and implementation of outreach efforts of Estes Forward will be made possible by the contribution of the following groups:

Project Team: This is a small group of Town and County planners that offer technical expertise and support throughout the planning process. Their role is to support project management; review and comment on the content of the plan as it develops; weigh in on the big decisions; and enhance the plan with technical expertise.


Comprehensive Planning Advisory Committee (CompPAC): This committee will lead the process and deliverables for this planning effort. Members of the CompPAC will represent and provide a feedback loop with the communities or boards that they represent. Their role is to review and comment on the content of the plan as it develops; weigh in on the big decisions; and enhance the plan with expertise.


Estes Valley Planning Advisory Committee (EVPAC): The EVPAC is an existing advisory committee established by Larimer County, with some overlap in membership with the ComPAC, which will engage with the Estes Forward planning process. The EVPAC is comprised of Estes Valley area residents, property owners, and business owners (as designated by the Planning Area in the Land Use Code) appointed by the Larimer County Board of Commissioners, for the purpose of providing an organized forum that is open for public participation and is dedicated to preserving and enhancing the identity and quality of the Estes Valley area. Their role in this process is to be leaders of and active participants; to be creative and think big; weigh in on decisions; collaborate with other groups; assist in getting the word out; be active listeners and solutions-oriented; and support public outreach events.


Estes Park Planning Commission and Town Board of Trustees: The Estes Park Planning Commission (EPPC) is a five-member Town commission that is tasked with reviewing and ultimately adopting the Comprehensive Plan. The EPPC will be regularly briefed on the process and development of the Comprehensive Plan and will be asked to review interim drafts and materials at key milestones during the process. Once the public has reviewed the full draft Comprehensive Plan, the EPPC will hold a public hearing to recommend the plan to Board of Trustees for adoption. The Estes Park Board of Trustees will also be briefed periodically on the process and development of the Comprehensive Plan. They will also hold a public hearing and be the ultimate authority to adopt the final Comprehensive Plan. As appropriate, the Planning Commission and Board of Trustees will meet to discuss this plan at joint worksessions or at regularly scheduled meetings.


Larimer County Planning Commission and Board of County Commissioners: The Larimer County Planning Commission (LCPC) is a nine-member County commission that is responsible for adopting a long-range master plan for the physical development of the unincorporated territory of the County. The LCPC will be regularly briefed on the process and development of the Estes Forward Plan and will be asked to review interim drafts and materials at key milestones during the process. The Board of County Commissioners will also be briefed periodically on the process and development of this plan. As appropriate, the Planning Commission and Board of County Commissioners will meet to discuss this plan at joint worksessions or at regularly scheduled meetings.


Consultants: Logan Simpson is the prime consultant firm will be responsible for management of the overall project, development of the public engagement strategy in coordination with the Town, County, and coordination of the sub consultant teams. Sub-consultants include FHU, Michael Baker, and OPS Strategies who will participate in topic-specific analysis, evaluation, and policy and strategy development. With regards to public involvement efforts, Logan Simpson will facilitate committee meetings and public activities; manage the website and information distribution; analyze current data trends; and lead the document and policy development.


The Public and Community Stakeholders: Members of the public are encouraged to engage throughout the Estes Forward planning process. Additionally, specific community and interest groups will be invited to participate in the process. Our hope is to have a thoughtful engagement from a broad range of community members and groups that represent the diversity in Estes Valley.
