Dear Cordillera Property Owners,
A strategic planning session was held Tuesday, March 28, after a half-day tour of other recreation and community facilities in the valley on Monday, March 27. The planning session focused on objectives to enhance the vibrancy and vitality of the community.
As a result of the session, both boards unanimously decided to initiate a planning and development process and feasibility study for a centralized community center that would serve as a multiuse, focal point at the entrance of our community. We anticipate a robust, fast-paced and engaging process that builds on the strategic initiatives the boards and communities have developed previously and simultaneously anticipates the needs and interest of the current and new homeowners in Cordillera for generations to come.
April 28, both boards approved retaining Goulding Development Advisors (GDA) and Davis Partnership Architects (Davis). Todd Goulding, will serve as CMD and CPOA independent owners representative. GDA was selected as the owner representative for the 2016 Athletic Center at Cordillera renovation, and has worked with numerous other special districts and municipalities such as Beaver Creek Metropolitan District, Eagle River Fire Protection District, Eagle River Water and Sanitation District and Berry Creek Metropolitan District. GDA provides turnkey project management services for owners and developers.
Davis will conduct land planning and schematic design for a centralized, premier Cordillera community center. Davis is one of Colorado’s largest and most broadly capable design firms, offering services in architecture, landscape architecture, master planning, interior design, signage design and architectural research. Davis is committed to a collaborative multidisciplinary process that integrates the building, its site, interiors and signage into a single, coordinated and expressive solution. Davis specializes in a wide variety of project types, including community centers, office, health care, higher education, multifamily residential, hospitality, mixed-use, sports and recreation, research and civic projects.
May 16, GDA and Davis Partnerships facilitated an introductory session for board and community members to see examples of similar existing facilities throughout the nation to initiate a feedback process that informs planning and design. In addition, a draft project schedule was reviewed and is currently being refined to accomplish the key deliverables of the planning process. Potential objectives for a centralized community center include:
Initial programming, services and facility ideas include but are not limited to the following:
