Active Modes Plan#

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 are starting with our Visioning Phase where we will engage the Fort Collins community to better understand what you think walking and bicycling should look like in Fort Collins in 10 years. Then, we'll begin to understand the existing conditions in the community to help us build the Active Modes Plan.

Visit our Active Modes Plan page for more information, and check back often as new information will be added all the time. 

More information

The Pedestrian Plan addresses citywide pedestrian needs like gaps in the sidewalk, safer ways to cross the street, and better ramps at street corners. The Pedestrian Plan outlines issues and proposes solutions to problems for pedestrians with the ultimate goal being safe, easy, and convenient pedestrian travel for all members of the community.

Pedestrian Plan

The Bicycle Master Plan envisions Fort Collins as a world-class city for bicycling. The Bicycle Master Plan sets a vision for the year 2020, when one in five people will ride a bike, and bicycle-related crashes will be fewer than today.

The principles and policies in the Transit Master Plan provide a high-level framework guiding Transfort’s growth over the next 20 years.

W. Magnolia St. and S. Shields St.

The 2014 Bicycle Master Plan identifies the intersection of W. Magnolia St. and S. Shields St. for multimodal improvements as part of the Magnolia Bikeway and alternative to W. Mulberry St. protected bike lanes. Magnolia St. connects directly to City Park and downtown on low-volume local streets. The unsignalized intersection of Magnolia and Shields is a barrier to active transportation.
