Spanish Valley Area Plan
Landmark Design is excited to partner with San Juan County residents and officials in the development of a clear and concise vision for the future of the San Juan County portion of the Spanish Valley. This project will focus on areas impacted by upcoming water and sewer infrastructure improvements and future development of private and state owned lands by considering land use, open space, economic development, transportation, and affordable housing in the southern part of the Spanish Valley.
* For detailed information on the Spanish Valley water and sewer improvements being designed by Jones and DeMille Engineering, please see: http://www.spanishvalleywater.org/.
