Response to Moving to Ouray???
You are right. Ouray is the most beautiful place in the world. And it shows on the people who all look out the window each morning and are so thankful to live here.
Everyone seems to be wildly busy all the time, by the time they make a living and still work in some sort of recreation available right outside the door. The pool is also a great amenity...natural hot springs without the typical odor associated with most hot springs.
I am on the Community Development Committee, had a shop until I sold it last March, and have an ongoing relationship with most of the business community. We would be happy to provide information about potential new businesses, but probably need to know some general area of interest for such.
Most of the for sale signs you saw are for buildings, not businesses, and most of those for sale are folks who have reached retirement age and are moving on to another life adventure. However, other than a couple, those building still house businesses.
There are a few, not many, rental spaces available. The appropriate space would be very dependent on the type of business and the location that needs. We are aware of a variety of types of retail and/or service sorts of businesses that we think have a good chance of being successful. We are trying hard to set up systems that will be as supportive as possible to help new biz survive and thrive.
We would welcome your questions.
