History: A town core for Snowmass

The Snowmass Town Center is getting revitalized once again. Constructed more than 30 years ago, the building originally was intended to be the center for local activities including the town operations, Police Department, post office and grocery along with a few businesses that served the community rather than tourist operations, which could be found on the mall. It was the downtown core for the town of Snowmass Village. As Mayor Jack Schuss was exiting office in March 1980, he saw it as one of his achievements to get the center development approved. As the town has grown, the space no longer serves as the government headquarters but still serves the community with local shops and grocery needs. The photograph, taken by Chris Cassatt, shows the center during its construction.
