Residential parking Permit Program (RP3) for CSU Stadium Events

In order 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 or not an event is taking place with associated residential parking restrictions.

A Residential Parking Permit Program (RP3) for CSU stadium events was recently 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 will be placed in these neighborhoods throughout the summer and will be installed before the first CSU Stadium Event (First football game will be held August 26, 2017)

Letters will be sent to each household providing information regarding program details, permits and enforcement.
