FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: How was the boundary of the Durango Creative District determined?
A: Our community held an initial stakeholder process from 2018-2019. A committee of approximately 20 community members formed and developed a map of Durango's creative assets, including creative businesses, organizations, public art works, and event locations. They utilized this data to inform their final decision of the Durango Creative District's boundary area.
Q: The boundary area is large! How can this be considered a "district"?
A: Although the boundary area is large, it is connected by the Animas River Trail and is accessible by foot, bike, trolley or car. The committee opted for a larger boundary area to include the majority of Durango's major creative industries and infuse new energy into various areas of town. There's many discoverable areas of Durango!
Q: My business is not listed on the map. How can I list my business?
