San Juan County and the Town of Silverton have partnered with non-profit Community Builders to facilitate a transparent, community-driven process, called The Compass Project, that will result in a vision for the future of the Town of Silverton/ San Juan County.

Guided by a team of community leaders, dubbed the Taskforce this year-long process will engage Silverton/ San Juan County from the bottom up, encouraging each individual community member to share opinions, concerns, and desires through activities and meetings.

This process will result in a documented vision for Silverton/ San Juan County that will influence the Town’s Master Plan. To ensure ownership and accountability, the vision will be presented to local government entities and elected leaders for adoption.

In this project, the process is equally as important as the result. This project will generate a plan for Silverton’s future, and along the way it will strive to create unity, understanding among one another, amplify voices of all generations, and take pride in the place we call home.
