About the Plan#

The Active Modes Plan combines and updates the City’s 2011 Pedestrian Plan and 2014 Bicycle Plan as well as incorporating micromobility devices such as scooters and skateboards. The plan identifies key opportunities to significantly improve and expand the City’s existing active modes networks, support facilities, policies, and programs. The plan envisions Fort Collins as a place where walking, bicycling, and using other active modes are safe, accessible, convenient, joyful, and desired by people of all ages and abilities.

Acerca del plan#


Con el Plan de Modos Activos, se combina y actualiza el Plan de Peatones 2011 de la Ciudad y el Plan de Bicicletas 2014. Además, se incorporan dispositivos de micromovilidad como monopatines y patinetas. En el plan, se identifican oportunidades clave para mejorar y expandir significativamente las redes de modos activos existentes de la Ciudad, las instalaciones de apoyo, las políticas y los programas. En el plan, se visualiza a Fort Collins en el que caminar, andar en bicicleta y usar otros modos activos es seguro, accesible, conveniente, divertido y llamativo para personas de todas las edades y habilidades. 

El Concejo Municipal adoptó el Plan de Modos Activos en diciembre de 2022. Aproximadamente 3500 miembros de la comunidad brindaron comentarios para contribuir al plan.
