The San Luis Valley is home to an astonishing array of natural and cultural assets: a beloved national park, a national heritage area, numerous national wildlife areas, state parks, historic sites, cultural districts, and world-class recreation, fishing and sporting opportunities on its public lands and waterways. These assets attract visitors, and underpin a quality of life that draws residents and new businesses. At the same time, the SLV has long-supported rich agricultural and ranching traditions.
All of these elements contribute to the San Luis Valley “story”, its diverse culture, and economy.
Part of a statewide network of gateway community development efforts, the SLV Momentum Initiative will explore paths to creating a vibrant, prosperous future for the valley and its communities. The Momentum Initiative will provide a platform for community leaders, businesses, industries, local governments, and land managers to work together to tackle challenges presented by promoting and protecting natural and cultural assets, and preserving other economic sectors and ways of life.
