Update to the East Mulberry Plan#


In 2002, the East Mulberry Corridor Plan was created to help integrate the area into the broader Fort Collins community. The City has begun the process of updating this plan to reflect current conditions. This plan is:

  • A collaborative effort led by a team of staff and partners from Planning, Development & Transportation, Finance, Utilities, Police Services, Parks and Natural Areas, and Larimer County staff, among others,
  • A shared vision for the East Mulberry Area, including business areas and residential areas,
  • An effort to build relationships and build mutual understanding.
