rebuilding community resilience and self-reliance



Welcome to Transition Town Manitou Springs. Transition Town is a resource for the Manitou Springs community (and the Pikes Peak Region) to allow the transition away from our dependence on a fossil fuel-based culture and into a more sustainable, resilient and self-reliant way of life. Transition Town is meant to inform, inspire, encourage, and help organize our community of 5000 to begin to act, innovate and create viable models and structures of sustainability in all areas of community life. This involves, but is not limited to, the areas of food security, local economy, energy production and use, transportation, health care, and housing.

Our first initiative for 2014 will be the opening of a ‘local-first” grocer here in the center of Manitou Springs. Please see the tab above for more information.
