Plans in Progress#
The Plans below are currently under development. Once adopted, these Plans will guide the work of FC Moves into the future. Explore these Plans and learn about opportunities for engagement to help shape their development.
Active Modes Plan#
FC Moves is beginning the process of updating our 2014 Bicycle Master Plan and 2011 Pedestrian Plan into a single unified plan we're calling our Active Modes Plan. We started with our Visioning Phase where we engaged the Fort Collins community to better understand what you think walking and bicycling should look like in Fort Collins in 10 years. Then, we've started to understand the existing conditions in the community to help us build the Active Modes Plan. Next, we'll share our draft network, policy, and programs recommendations for community input. Finally, we are aiming for Plan adoption by City Council in summer 2022.
Visit our Active Modes Plan page for more information, and check back often as new information will be added all the time.
