Downtown Plan

The Fort Collins Downtown Plan serves as a guide and inspiration for budgets, projects, programs, investments, regulations and other efforts focused in the downtown area. Adopted by City Council in 1989, the previous plan helped shaped the downtown as it exists today.

The new Downtown Plan will update the vision, policy direction, and action items for the next 10-20 years. In addition, the new Downtown Plan will incorporate recently completed planning efforts and studies (e.g., the Poudre River Downtown Master Plan, the citywide Pedestrian Plan, and the Bicycle Master Plan) into a comprehensive plan for Downtown Fort Collins.
