Attend this event to ask questions, provide input, and learn more about featured projects including:
Fort Collins and CSU Bike Plans
The City of Fort Collins is developing a 2014 Bike Plan to set the wheels in motion and create a world-class city for bicycling where people of all ages and abilities can ride safely and comfortably.
Lincoln Corridor Plan
The Lincoln Corridor Plan strives to develop a compelling vision and to identify and prioritize improvements to the street and surrounding area. Preview the proposed Preferred Alternative including streetscape amenities, transit phasing, related neighborhood projects and proposed strategies for implementation.
Midtown in Motion – College Avenue Transportation Study
Midtown in Motion marks the launch of the second phase of transforming College Avenue between Prospect and Harmony Roads, including the frontage roads and connections to the new MAX stations. Among the goals of the Midtown in Motion plan are to develop design concepts that increase mobility, safety and transform College Avenue into a “World Class” Street.
Nature in the City
As our community transitions from a suburban to urban city and densities increase, the potential for losing informal natural areas and features within the urban core is threatened unless we take action to ensure these areas are either preserved or created. This effort will develop a Nature in the City Strategic Plan to ensure that every citizen has access to nature.
Transit Oriented Development (TOD) Parking Study
The TOD Parking Study is engaging the community in order to implement parking standards that complement compact and walkable development patterns as envisioned in the Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) Overlay Zone.
Remington Green Way Project
The City of Fort Collins City Plan, Transportation Master Plan, Bicycle Plan and Bicycle Safety and Education Plan include action items to reshape and/or develop green streets. The Remington Green Way from Prospect to Mountain will develop a demonstration project to test out reshaping including improvements for bicycling, walking, transit and green infrastructure.
Transfort Route Changes
Beginning in May 2014, Transfort will begin new MAX service along the Mason Corridor and realign many of its routes to connect with MAX at various stations and the new South Transit Center. More frequent and evening service will be provided on many routes. Transfort is seeking feedback on their proposed system route changes.
West Central Neighborhoods Plan/Prospect Road Corridor Design
The West Central Neighborhoods Plan, adopted in 1999, generally encompasses the neighborhoods south and west of CSU. Given City Plan’s emphasis on infill versus sprawl, CSU’s increased enrollment projections and the possibility of an on-campus stadium, it is now time to re-assess plans, policies, and transportation needs so that quality of life is preserved and enhanced.
2040 Regional Transportation Plan and Transit Element
The North Front Range Metropolitan Planning Organization (NFRMPO) is updating the 2040 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP), which includes a Regional Transit Element (RTE) section. The NFRMPO is looking for input from the public on the North Front Range’s regional transportation network.
This event is open to everyone – residents, business owners, stakeholders and other interested parties are encouraged to attend. Refreshments will be served.
