Several Colorado State University graduate students have spent months developing a proposed master plan for the Mason UniverCity District, and will present their ideas to the community and City planning, zoning and engineering staff from 8:30-10 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 14, in City Council Chambers at 300 Laporte Avenue.
Students in Assistant Professor Jane Choi’s Landscape Architecture class performed an urban analysis of the existing district, and looked for opportunities to create a more cohesive, vibrant neighborhood in the area bordered by Cherry Street, Remington Street, Prospect Road and Meldrum Street. They have developed master plans and identified ‘seed projects’ that could help spur redevelopment and enhance the design and experience of the area. Ideas range from pedestrian-friendly promenades and cultural appreciation to urban agriculture and wildlife corridors.
“These students have developed sound presentations and very creative ideas for this area of the community,” said Diane Jones, Deputy City Manager. “I invite you to come and be inspired by their vision for the Mason Corridor. Your presence and shared thoughts will be invaluable to the students and will help advance the goals of the Urban Lab.”
