Site of redevelopment

Many Fort Collins residents have expressed interest in the future of the former Hughes Stadium property following the stadium’s demolition in 2018. This page has been updated to be a resource for residents as the plans for the future of the property develop.

Currently, Colorado State University owns the 161-acre property. CSU has been working on its plans for the property, including working with a private developer on a proposal for a mix of housing, commercial, transit, and open space on the site. Once an application has been submitted for review under the City’s Land Use Code, information about the CSU application will be available at the City’s Development Proposals Under Review searchable web page at: https://www.fcgov.com/developmentreview/proposals/

A citizen-initiated ballot measure was submitted to City Council in 2020. The measure, which has the required number of signatures to be added to the April 2021 municipal election ballot, will ask voters to direct the City to rezone the property to the Public Open Lands zone district. Original petition language requiring the City to acquire the property is currently under legal review. The final ballot language will be set by the City Council at its regular meeting on February 16. Ballots will then be printed for the April election and then will be mailed around three weeks prior to the April 6 election date.

The City as a government entity has not taken a position on the ballot measure.
