Comprehensive Plan Implementation

In 2015, the Town began implementation of the Comprehensive Plan policies by adopting revised Design District Standards and Guidelines for the Town's six commercial districts.  In 2016, the Town created the new Town Core Zone District, and rezoned many of the properties between 2nd and 6th Streets, west of HWY 9 into Town Core zoning.  Please follow these links to the updated Town Core Zone District standards, and the updated 2016 Use Schedule.

Exciting Developments in Silverthorne's Town Core
