Collbran Arena Master Plan 11-3-15

Project Purpose
The purpose of this project is to create a master plan for the Collbran Rodeo Facility, a 13.34 acre site just north of downtown Collbran. The Master Plan is intended to be used as a guide for the Town that is comprehensive, phased, supports a variety of activities, and prioritizes recommendations and improvements for the future. Another piece of the Master Plan is to create a Conceptual Site Plan based on public engagement, site analysis and programmatic needs. The Collbran Rodeo Arena is the only rodeo facility in the Plateau Valley which means it is significant to the entire valley, and could become a regional draw. The site’s primary use is for equestrian and rodeo events with the goal that through the master planning process it could be used for more community events and become a destination for western slope towns. Future site amenities will be based on recreational, agricultural and educational needs of the community. Master Planning is the first step in the design process, resulting in a Conceptual Site Plan that is then used to aid the Town with determining recommended facility upgrades and short and long term priorities. Following the Master Plan approval, the sequence of the design process is Schematic Design, Design Development and Construction Documents with continuing public involvement, town approvals and attention to historic preservation, these steps are future phases separate from the Master Plan scope of work.
