The City of Fort Collins will host a drop-in Open House to present the Preferred Alternative design for the Lincoln Corridor Plan on Thursday, January 23, 2014, 4:30 – 7 p.m. at the City Streets Facility Training Room, 625 Ninth Street.
The Preferred Alternative design has incorporated input from public participation in previous workshops and meetings held in 2013. We invite you to stop by at your convenience to see the proposed long-term street design and amenities for Lincoln Avenue, as well as plans for other neighborhood projects such new sidewalks, enhanced transit service, and pedestrian crossings.
The draft plan will be submitted to Council for adoption consideration in March 2014. If you are unable to attend the meeting, you can review the proposed plans online and provide feedback through an online survey available January 17–31.
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.
