The City of Fort Collins will host a public visioning event on June 18, 2013 at the Community Room, 215 North Mason Street as part of the Lincoln Corridor Plan. We ask the public to join the conversation and help identify the right elements for the future of the Lincoln Corridor through this visioning exercise. At the event, Staff will gather community feedback through live polling, and group discussions. If you are unable to attend the event, you can add your thoughts by taking an online survey beginning June 18. The outcome of this event and survey will shape the character for the Lincoln Corridor before the design team prepares concepts for the street.

Register today! RSVP online at fcgov.com/Lincoln or contact Lori Bichler at 970-221-6705 or Interested participants are invited to register online and choose from one of the following four interactive sessions held throughout the day:
• 7:30-9:00 a.m.
• 11:30 a.m.-1:00 p.m.
• 4:00-5:30 p.m.
• 6:00-7:30 p.m.

“The purpose of this visioning event is to provide the community an opportunity to review and discuss other great streets from across Colorado, the nation, and world, identify what makes them great and memorable, and discuss how those ideas may apply to making Lincoln a great street,” says Pete Wray, Senior City Planner.

Lincoln Avenue is an important gateway into the River District and Downtown, and has evolved into a mixed-use district in its own right. The Lincoln Corridor Plan represents a 12-month planning effort with robust public engagement to lead the search for a corridor vision, a design for the street, a list of prioritized improvements, and a funding plan. This effort is intended to capture the corridor values, including multi-modal mobility, history and culture, neighborhood protection, land use diversity and urban design, river protection and enhancement, water quality enhancement, and others.
