Downtown Colorado Springs Planning Projects - In 2005 City residents, downtown property owners, elected officials, developers, local leaders, and City Staff began working together to create a vision for the future of downtown Colorado Springs. After nearly 18 months of effort, with nearly 400 participants, the Imagine Downtown Plan was finalized and adopted by the Downtown Development Authority as their 'plan of development.' From 2007 through 2009 downtown stakeholders worked with City Staff to modify the Imagine Downtown Plan to include the necessary components to qualify as an official Master Plan and replace the 15-year-old Downtown Action Plan. In 2009 the Imagine Downtown Master Plan was adopted by City Council.
After 2+ years of implementation, City Staff recommended a number of minor updates to the Form-Based Code. These changes were adopted by the Downtown Review Board, the City’s Planning Commission and ultimately City Council in April of 2012.
