Project Description/Status as of December 2009:
The Planning Department is updating the 1984 Coors Corridor Plan to provide additional design standards that better integrate the natural landscape with development activities and to clarify the regulatory language, as the regulations can be difficult to interpret consistently. The Planning Department has had HDR and J.F. Sato and Associates as consultants who helped lay a foundation for the update. The existing plan and public input contributed as well.
The update process was initiated in August 2005. Public Hearings by the Environmental Planning Commission (EPC) began on May 10, 2007 and continued to December 2008. After their review, the EPC recommended that a detailed view analysis be conducted along the east side of Coors, north of Western Trail. J.F Sato and Associates performed the view study and their design recommendations have been reviewed and incorporated where appropriate.
A citizen advisory group was formed in March 2009 and held 4 meetings to discuss the most recent draft of the plan. Comments from this advisory group are also being incorporated and the plan is scheduled to be heard by the Environmental Planning Commission in the Spring of 2010.
Upon approval of this Plan by the City Council, the existing Coors Corridor Plan will be rescinded.
