Description: The bulk of the report explains issues and alternatives explored in the public process between 1999 and 2001. This material is intended to serve as a record of the process, and as reference material in the event of future interest in redevelopment.

The results of the planning process did not warrant adoption as an official subarea plan as originally intended. Instead, the report explains the differing perspectives in the context of a lack of consensus; and also explains redevelopment issues and ideas without recommending City actions to promote redevelopment at this time.

However, the report does recommend a tailored street design for West Elizabeth Street, and explains a possible new street design for Plum Street.

FedEx Office

Description: The emphasis of the Downtown River Corridor Implementation Program (DRCIP) is on action and implementation. This project, approved by City Council in 2000, identifies and coordinates projects and addresses issues ranging from natural areas to development. This program is also meant to resolve conflicts arising from the more than 20 plans and studies previously developed for this area.

This program does not suggest changes in City Plan or the City's Land Use Code. Instead, this program builds on existing projects and programs, especially City Plan. As spelled-out in City Plan, the visions for the downtown river corridor are of enhancement and restoration of natural river features, an extension of downtown uses and character towards the river landscape, and the integration of cultural and recreational opportunities into the area.

DRCIP consists of two distinct phases. The first phase, which was concluded with the Downtown River Corridor Implementation Program Summary Report, identified priorities, recommended next steps, and provided public outreach. The second phase consists of actual project implementation. Private and public entities are currently implementing various aspects of the Program. One of the more recent and significant efforts has been the work of UniverCity Connections and its task groups.

Description: This plan is a collaboration of careful land use planning between Larimer County, the City of Fort Collins, and citizens. The goal of the plan was to enhance the quality of a highly desirable urban level development area while preserving critical wildlife habitat and maintaining sensitivity to the rights of individuals.

The project was unique in that in that both jurisdictions - while operating under different land use regulations and planning environments - came together and worked through many complex issues and policy decisions, resulting in a jointly adopted plan.

Highlights are a new intergovernmental agreement, a "buffer zone" around the reservoir, and a Transfer of Density Units program which directs growth where it makes sense.
