DCI is pleased to continue to partner with the Town of Silverton as we establish a strategy plan to activate the downtown core and support the Southwest Corridor initiative towards a sustainable business ecosystem. With supportive public-private partnerships. Our plan will evolve from the work of the Silverton Challenge from the Colorado Challenge Accelerator Program. The Colorado Challenge Program is a unique team building accelerator focused on establishing a plan of work and proposal for funding over the course of twelve months. and continue for twelve months to establish a vision and plan for a sustainable and thriving community. A mid-day workshop for businesses, property owners, and partners to consider the benefits of business collaboration and resources and tools for managing Silverton’s Downtown Business district. Partners include USDA Rural Development and the Grand Junction Partnership.
