The Town of Breckenridge is a cohesive and diverse community...

1. Community Character
Where residents and visitors experience a historic mountain town with characteristic charm that offers a safe, friendly and peaceful atmosphere where individuals can live, work, play and raise a family.

2. Economic Viability/Sustainability
Where a strong and sustainable year-round economy insured through partnerships with local businesses, resort operators, and state and federal agencies and anchored by a healthy, vibrant Main Street, supports the diverse economic and employment needs of local residents.

3. Natural Resources
Where the actions of the community ensure that wildlife and its habitat are protected, that views from Town to the surrounding mountains are maintained, that both air and water quality are clean and improved, and that accessible open space, trails and backcountry are preserved.

4. Transportation
Where a multi-modal transportation system provides convenient, low cost, clean, sustainable links to the ski area base facilities, parking facilities, downtown and throughout the community and region.

5. Housing
Where a diversity of housing is integrated throughout the community and provides a variety of housing options.

6. Cultural Resources
Where art, architecture and cultural events and facilities improve the community experience for residents and visitors, offer diverse and affordable programming, and promote Breckenridge as a year-round cultural center for the region.

7. Recreational Resources
Where the natural beauty of the Rocky Mountains is augmented by world class recreational opportunities that provide diverse activities throughout the year. Those activities are served by community facilities that enrich the visitor experience while ensuring affordable and accessible recreation opportunities for residents and visitors.

8. Education, Government, Institutions
Where a responsive and accessible Town government encourages community participation in order to maintain and improve the quality of life for all.
