Strategic Trails Plan

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The Park Planning & Development team is updating the City's Strategic Trails Plan (STP), which will provide a framework for the future planning, design, maintenance, and preservation of the recreational paved trail system.

Throughout the planning process, numerous opportunities for input will be provided as we envision an expanding trail system that provides enhanced recreational opportunities, while connecting you to places you need to go.

Note: While the Natural Areas Department also provides many miles of natural and paved trails, the STP includes only the paved trails maintained and managed by the City of Fort Collins Parks Department. Additionally, the Mason Trail is not included in the planning study as it falls under the city’s Streets Department.

We look forward to continuing the buildout of a paved trail network that is accessible, safe, innovative, and built with intention for users of all ages, lifestyles, activity levels, and transportation modes.


STRATEGIC TRAILS PLAN PROJECT GOALS

  • Assess if the paved trail system is meeting the needs of the community, and determine opportunities and challenges for improvement.
  • Develop a shared vision for the expansion of the paved trail system to meet the future needs of a growing community.
  • Create transparency to trail funding, planning, design, construction and maintenance.
  • Explore and develop new policies to improve the current and future paved trail system.


WANT TO BE INVOLVED IN THE STP PLANNING PROCESS? Don't miss the following opportunities:

  • Attend an open house on April 15 from 5 - 7 p.m. at Northside Aztlan Community Center, located at 112 Willow St. Event is drop-in style with interactive activities designed to inform attendees about the project scope and collect input on trail needs, connections and amenities. Spanish translation will be provided. Note: There will be additional public meetings in the future to gather feedback, identify priorities, and review the drafted plan.

  • Take the Strategic Trails Plan questionnaire, which is linked below. The questionnaire feedback will help inform trail priorities, points of connection and future amenities. The questionnaire will be open through May 1.
  • Sign up for project updates with the "Stay Informed" link on this page. Periodic updates and event reminders will be sent directly to your email.
