Residential Parking Permit Program (RP3) For CSU Stadium Events#
Several neighborhoods near the university have instituted the Game Day Residential Parking Permit Program (RP3). Parking is restricted in those neighborhoods and cars parked without a permit will be ticketed. These zones are signed for permit parking only.
Public Parking at Max Park and Rides#
Limited public parking is available at MAX park and rides and at Downtown parking structures for attendees planning on taking MAX to the game. To help plan your parking, view locations of MAX park and rides and get more information about parking provided by CSU for football games.
To prevent unnecessary traffic and preserve neighborhood livability, RP3 for stadium events will restrict parking in participating neighborhoods to permitted residents and their guests. It will be activated for CSU football games and any other stadium event anticipating greater than 12,000 attendees. Signage will be posted with an informational phone number and website for motorists to confirm whether an event is taking place with associated residential parking restrictions.
A Residential Parking Permit Program (RP3) for CSU stadium events was initiated and voted in favor of by residents of the following neighborhoods:
- Sheeley (zone 2)
- Mantz (zone 3)
- Old Fort Collins High School (zone 6)
- Western Heights (zone 9)
- Lake (zone 10)
- Gilgalad Way
Signs are in these neighborhoods indicating no parking during Stadium Events
Enforcement begins 3 hours prior to each event and ends at the conclusion of the event.
