For the past year the City of Fort Collins has been reviewing parking standards for the Transit Oriented Development overlay district. The overlay is designed to encourage higher levels of density and design that supports transit style developments primarily along the Mason Corridor, but does extend around CSU’s Campus.
While offering support for most of the proposals, the Fort Collins Board of REALTORS will begin lobbying for the inclusion of offsets that would encourage affordable options for average wage earners in addition to low income housing. FCBR is also concerned about a proposal that would require new minimum parking standards for non-residential units. The parking standards are scheduled for consideration by City Council in October.
