Ridgway Creative District



Several answers tell the "big-picture" story:

1) The Ridgway Creative District (RCD) is an initiative of the Town to spur innovation and economic development while building community and supporting creativity and creative entrepreneurship.  It is managed by the Town's Community Initiatives Facilitator under the Community Development department.

2) The Ridgway Creative District is also a defined physical location (downtown Ridgway, including River Park Light Industrial) and the people, businesses, and organizations within and around it who are doing something creative with their hands and/or their minds.

3) The RCD has a team of citizen volunteers called the Creative Advocacy Team (the C.A.T.) which meets monthly to advance the goals of the Creative District (minutes of C.A.T. meetings can be found below).

4) And the RCD has twice met the requirements to be certified as a creative district by Colorado Creative Industries, a department of the State Office of Economic Development and International Trade, initially in 2013 and again in 2018. (It began as a prospective creative district in 2012.)

In May 2021, the Ridgway Creative Advocacy Team (C.A.T.) began its transition to the Ridgway Creative Main Street Group, merging the citizen engagement efforts of the RCD and Ridgway Main Street into one volunteer group.
