City planners are leading a 14-month study to create a new “Old Town Neighborhoods Plan.” Staff says there are a variety of potential issues that have been identified, including compatibility in fringe areas, zoning conflicts, historic property development proposals, parking, the growth of CSU and constrained corridors (Mulberry and N. Shields).
The Fort Collins Board of REALTORS Government Affairs Committee listened to a presentation on the plan with skepticism. The area has been the target of many planning efforts over the years, including the Eastside/Westside Neighborhood Character Study (2012) and a repealed home size limit ordinance (2010). This new plan will be coordinated with a multitude of other plans, including the Downtown Plan, the Bike Plan. Etc.
