  • Is part of the plan to widen Vine along its entire length? Are there going to be changes in how Vine intersects with I25?

    Kathleen asked 8 days ago

    Thank you for your question about Vine Dr.  The current Master Street Plan  (copies can be found at this link http://citydocs.fcgov.com/?dt=Master+Street+Plan+Map&dn=GIS+MAPS&vid=192&cmd=showdt) identifies Vine Drive as a 2 lane roadway, and the plan is to keep it as such. There is a new larger arterial road (4 lanes) being built just north of Vine, called Suniga. The plan has been for a long time that this new road would become the main east/west road feeding up to the northeast part of Fort Collins. 

    In regards to the I-25 and Vine intersection, that will also remain as is, without direct connection from I-25 to Vine Dr.  The bridge itself is likely to be rebuilt as part of the I-25 widening project, but the connection is planned to stay as currently configured. 

     If you would like to discuss further please feel free to contact me anytime.

  • How do I find out more information on proposed future streets. Particularly in question the connection/extension of International Blvd to E Lincoln Ave? Thanks

    Bumpas asked 4 months ago

    Thank you for reaching out regarding information on future streets. Our Master Street Plan (copies can be found at this link http://citydocs.fcgov.com/?dt=Master+Street+Plan+Map&dn=GIS+MAPS&vid=192&cmd=showdt) shows future streets and alignments. 

    During the City Plan process we will be reviewing and updating this map, but until then this remains the best resource for you to find out about future streets.  If you would like to discuss further please feel free to contact me anytime.

  • Where on this site can one apply to serve on a Working Group? Thank you.

    Alan asked 5 months ago

    Hi Alan,

    The working groups for City Plan have already been assembled, and the groups will begin meeting in the next few weeks. The groups are composed of City staff and technical experts in the community. Their role is primarily to advise the City Plan project management team and review public input received throughout the process. The working group meetings will be open to the public, and notes will be posted online after each working group meeting. If you have additional questions or need more information, email us anytime at cityplan@fcgov.com. Thanks for your question!

You can email cityplan@fcgov.com with more details or call 970-416-2283. Thanks!

  • Are there any plans to update the Northside Neighborhood Plan (last update was 2005)? We are not included in the Mountain Vista Subarea Plan or the Old Town Neighborhoods Plan. With all the potential growth in this area of town, it seems like this plan should be updated so that the people in this area are properly represented. Thank you.

    smilcan asked 6 months ago

    Thanks for your question!

    There are no current plans to update the Northside Neighborhoods Plan in the next several years. Many of the community’s subarea and neighborhood plans are updated approximately every 20 years. Although not fully encompassing the entire area of the original Northside Neighborhoods Plan boundaries, recent efforts with the Downtown Plan and the Lincoln Corridor Plan reviewed areas within and near the neighborhoods and provide more recent policy guidance.

    We anticipate there will be a lot of discussion about development and growth as part of City Plan, especially in northeast Fort Collins. If the community desires changes to the frameworks for land-use or transportation near the neighborhoods, that could trigger new policies and recommendations to begin an update of the Northside Neighborhoods plan sooner. 


  • I think your Facebook link on share your idea is broken.

    Fred Kirsch asked 12 months ago

    Update 9/6/2017: The link seems to be working fine now. If you are still noticing a problem, please email moverton@fcgov.com and we'll try to figure out what's going on.

    Thank you for letting us know! We've put in a request to get the Facebook "share" links updated and will post here when the issue has been fixed.

  • Is the team considering extending Turnberry Road to Vine Drive to alleviate traffic in the northeastern segment of Fort Collins? The roads in this area are not sufficient to safely and efficiently handle traffic into town, especially with the expected growth in this segment. Thank you

    FreierReed asked about 1 year ago

    The City Plan process will involve reviewing and assessing the entire Master Street Plan, including the alignment of Turnberry. We want to make sure we take a comprehensive look at the entire northeast part of Fort Collins and the current and future street network. We will gather as much input from the community as possible to understand impacts of any changes that may be proposed to the Master Street Plan. For more information about the Master Street Plan and to view current maps, visit https://www.fcgov.com/transportationplanning/msp.php. Thanks for your question!


  • Where can I find the City Sidewalk prioritization list of the top 500 sections of sidewalks needing improvements?

    Cellproguy asked about 1 year ago

    Thanks for your question!

    The City's Engineering Department is in the process of updating the prioritized list of sidewalk improvements this year. A list should be completed by the end of 2017. We're also working with the Larimer County Department of Health and Environment and FCMoves to incorporate new metrics and further improve the sidewalk prioritization model. 

    If you have questions about a specific area or would like more details about how the City prioritizes sidewalk improvements, the best contact is the Engineering Department (970-221-6314).
