Envision Colorado
Chaffee County’s natural beauty and rural character are an essential part of our identity and are among the main reasons people choose to live here and visit. Envision Chaffee County is a countywide effort to help maintain our natural resources, rural  landscapes and sense of community as we grow and prosper. We will develop a plan that charts a path forward to 2030 and beyond, to help preserve our best assets into the future.

What is your vision?

  • Sense of Community
  • Quality of Life
  • Rural Landscapes
  • Water Quality
  • Wildlife Habitat
  • Recreational Access
  • Forest Health
  • Economic Opportunity

If you have time and interest, it would be great if you would take the survey to help our county plan for the future:

And please share with others.

Believe it or not it is time to start thinking about Christmas Card Lane.  These are holiday cards – to celebrate the season; not billboards with phone numbers.  The High School art teacher says her class can paint a total of ten cards. This includes touching up the paint on old cards if you think yours need freshening up.  A new card is $125. If you would like a card to celebrate the holiday season, or would like to help make this event happen, please call the Chamber at 719-395-6612.  We may not have a prison crew to help set the holiday cards up so we could use some help to make this tradition happen.
