Montava is a proposed development for a section of rural and agricultural land next to the Anheuser-Busch facility in northeast Fort Collins. The 860-acre proposal is modeled off of Traditional Neighborhood Development (TDN) or village-style development because of the wide variety of land uses. The development would include a variety of housing, amenities and public spaces. The proposal calls for a complete, connected community with new neighborhoods, parks, schools, a town center, urban agriculture, businesses, and transportation connections.

This site is meant to supplement the information provided at public outreach sessions and neighborhood meetings. Comments made here will be shared with the City staff members who are reviewing the project and will be shared with project decision-makers if/when phases of the project go to a public hearing. Our goal is to post all pertinent public information regarding the project as it is submitted, including but not limited to, site plans, traffic studies, staff comments and event announcements. You are also encouraged to reach out directly to staff listed on this site if you have other specific questions or concerns.

Participate below to share ideas and ask questions. Then, subscribe to the project to stay in the know about what happens next.

    A Preliminary Design Review (PDR) has been submitted for Montava Phases 1a and 1b. The Preliminary Design Review meeting between City staff and the applicant team will take place on Wednesday, March 25. If you would like to review the documents submitted for the PDR, click here. These documents have also been added to the document library on the right-hand side of this page.

    What is a PDR?

    A Preliminary Design Review (PDR) is a meeting with City staff who review development projects. The intent of the meeting is to identify key issues or requirements that will need to be incorporated into a development application. The PDR meeting is conceptual in nature and is not a formal development application. You can find more information about conceptual review and PDR meetings on the City's Development Review Center website.

    What is being proposed?

    Phase 1a is anticipated to include approximately 200 units in the southwest portion of the PUD Master Plan (adjacent to Storybook), and would include townhomes, cottages, small to medium single-family homes, and space for future multi-family housing.

    Phase 1b would include the farm, support buildings, farm stand, and community gathering area.

    What Happens After the PDR Meeting?

    An update will be posted here and sent to the Montava email list when a formal development application is received for the first phase. Notification will be provided for any voluntary neighborhood meetings as well.

    The residential uses proposed with Phase 1a are subject to a Basic Development Review (BDR) process. The decision maker for a Basic Development Review is the Director of Community Development & Neighborhood Services for the City of Fort Collins. The Basic Development Review does not require a neighborhood meeting or public hearing, though staff is always willing to meet with individuals and groups to answer questions and understand concerns. Public comments will be fully considered in the final decision.

    Phase 1b, the farm, would be subject to a Type 1 administrative hearing process. The decision maker for Type 1 projects is an Administrative Hearing Officer, and public hearing is required.

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    Montava PUD Master Plan and Overlay Approved

    The Fort Collins City Council gave final approval to the Montava Planned Unit Development (PUD) Master Plan and Overlay following a public hearing on Tuesday, Feb. 18, 2020.

    Montava is a long-term development project that covers a land area of 999 acres in northeast Fort Collins. The Montava PUD Master Plan proposes a phased approach to achieve buildout of the Montava community, which is planned to include about 4,200 dwelling units and 450,000-750,000 square feet of commercial, industrial, and/or employment uses. Montava is expected to be developed in phases over 25 or more years.

    To ensure that communication about key development milestones for the Montava project is consistent and comprehensive over this extended time frame, City staff have proposed a range of different methods to keep the public informed. The City’s Land Use Code already requires certain kinds of notice related to development – for example, mailed notice, sign posting, and published notice for neighborhood meetings and public hearings. In addition to these legally required notices, the City will also provide web updates, e-mail notification, and social media postings for each future phase of the Montava project.

    Members of the public who are interested in following future phases of the Montava development are encouraged to visit the Montava website at https://ourcity.fcgov.com/Montava to sign up for project updates.
