Fort Collins Downtown Plan

The Fort Collins Downtown Plan was developed over the course of 2016 through a number of iterative community planning workshops. The Downtown plan extends beyond the downtown core to three gateway areas where infill and redevelopment continues to occur at a high rate. Downtown areas were categorized into character districts which reflect distinctive characteristics as streets, buildings and sites. Design guidelines were prepared for each key Character District that act as a basis for future zoning and land use code updates. The character district design guidelines are intended to provide a level of flexibility while still capturing community goals and aspirations for maintaining and enhancing downtown character.
