HISTORY OF CONIFER AREA COUNCIL

Conifer Area Council became the name of a group of concerned citizens in the Conifer area in September of 2002.

However, this group of people has a much longer and important history. Our roots go back to working on the Conifer / 285 Corridor Area Community Plan Update.

A grass roots effort began in 1997 to work on the Update of the original Plan that had been adopted in 1987. The Final Draft was completed in February, 2002 after 10,000 volunteer hours of work. The final, publishable version was approved by the Jefferson County Planning Commission on September 3, 2003.

Many members of the group that spent those 10,000 hours of volunteer time then spearheaded the ongoing organization called Conifer Area Council.

VISION

“The Conifer area. . . our vibrant mountain home where natural beauty,
wildlife and independent spirits join together as a community.
