Fort Collins: Revisions to Adequate Public Facilities Ordinance

On August 9 staff also presented potential refinements to the transportation component of the City’s Adequate Public Facilities (APF) ordinance which was originally designed to supplement the street oversizing fee. The APF looks at a development’s impacts to the existing level of service on affected streets and intersections. It sets standards and requirements which have to be met by developers prior to receiving approval for projects, requiring the developer to pay for improvements to intersections or other transportation-related enhancements related to the impact of the project on the site. The revisions would allow alternative mitigation such as multi-modal and transit, especially for areas that are built out such as the old town area. The Council was supportive of the proposal, so expect this to come back to the City Council this fall as well.
