Per Town Council’s direction, the Town of Telluride staff will introduce a discussion regarding the commercial space at the Voodoo Affordable Housing Project at the Tuesday, May 14 regular meeting. The Town will host a public forum to gather feedback surrounding the desired use and selection process for the Voodoo commercial space on Monday, May 6, 9 a.m.

In December 2022, the Telluride Town Council and Telluride Housing Authority authorized the construction of the Voodoo Affordable Housing Project which, in addition to 27 housing units, includes approximately 3700 gross square feet of tenant-finish commercial space, including walls and bathrooms. The spaces are located on the ground floor of the building along the Willow St. and Pacific Ave. frontages and within the historic contributing-rated shed.

These commercial spaces are not “deed-restricted” to specific uses and would be suitable for office and retail activities for public, non-profit, or private tenants. The commercial spaces are not designed to support full restaurant, commercial kitchen, assembly, or childcare. Since the project’s authorization, the historic shed portion of the commercial space has been designated for a regional Youth Hangout. The tenant-finished commercial space is slated for completion in September 2024.

“The development of this Town-owned commercial space presents a unique opportunity to expand local businesses and services available to residents,” said Town Manager Scott Robson. “We’re excited to hear from the diverse voices within our community as we explore the potential uses of this new space.”

A brief site walk will take place at Voodoo at 151 S Willow at 9 am before proceeding to the Wilkinson Public Library Program Room for a brief presentation and opportunity for public feedback. The Town and CCY Architects will present details surrounding the commercial space’s design and layout, followed by discussions on potential uses, including retail opportunities, cultural programming, community events, and environmental considerations.

The public forum portion of the meeting will allow for in-person or virtual participation via Zoom with Spanish interpretation via Zoom only.

Telluride, more:

Nestled amidst the majestic San Juan Mountains of southwest Colorado, Telluride’s captivating narrative is deeply rooted in the ancient legacy of the Ute tribe, the valley’s original inhabitants, who crafted their summer camps along the San Miguel River, naming the land “The Valley of Hanging Waterfalls.”

In the late 1700s, Spanish explorers traversed the rugged terrain, laying the groundwork for subsequent exploration and settlement. A fervent mining boom followed, igniting a rush of prospectors to the region, culminating in the founding of Telluride in 1880.

Telluride’s allure as a hub of opportunity attracted fortune seekers, bolstered by the arrival of the Rio Grande Southern Railroad and groundbreaking innovations like the hydroelectric power plant in Ames.

Set in a box canyon amid forested peaks at the base of the popular Telluride ski-and-golf resort, the town’s historic district houses landmarks like the Sheridan Opera House and the Telluride Historical Museum while playing host to culture, music, arts, outdoor recreation, and festivals with unrivaled views and dramatic locale.
