Downtown Master Plan

Experience Downtown Plan

Beginning in 2015 the City of Colorado Springs, the Downtown Development Authority (DDA) and a diverse group of stakeholders worked together to update the 2009 Imagine Downtown Master Plan.  The new “Experience Downtown Plan,” which was adopted by City Council in November 2016,  utilizes significant public input, subject matter experts, and numerous recently adopted City-wide plans to create a market-based, tactical plan that will lead the desired renaissance Downtown.  The Plan contains two volumes: Volume I will serve as the DDA’s legal “plan of development” to guide the best use of their resources; Volume II will serve as the City’s traditional land use master plan.
