In-Process Concept Plan

The planning team now has a IN-PROCESS CONCEPT PLAN for you to check out!  This plan was created based on feedback from all campus and site-wide stakeholders.  This includes the University, University of Colorado Hospital, Children's Hospital Colorado, City of Aurora, Fitzsimons Redevelopment Authority (FRA), and University Physicians, Inc. (UPI).  The planning team compiled ideas and comments from each group to come up with a 10-YEAR CONCEPT PLAN. See below for some diagrams outlining some main concepts.

Tell us what you think...Do you have other ideas or comments? We  will use your comments to develop a preliminary preferred plan.

Add a comment at the bottom of this post.  We have drawings below that show pedestrian networks, roadway ideas, shuttle ideas and parking scenarios.  You can comment on any or all of them!

Pedestrian Connections - Connecting north and south portions of the site, adding pedestrian corridor at 19th Place, and enhancing streets to include sidewalks, trees, pedestrian lighting. Will connect FRA lands to campus and encourage integration of uses.
Roadways- Opening 17th Avenue to traffic to alleviate congestion in other parts of campus.  17th will also offer shuttles that runs east-west for hospital/research use. Also connections to city grid and northern part of site for better connectivity.
Shuttle - Possible shuttle running north-south from satellite lot for students and employees. Also shuttle along opened 17th Avenue for clinical and research use.  Especially for better patient transportation.


Parking  - Including a low-cost satellite parking lot in the northern part of the site to accommodate students and employees.

  1. I think the parking lot in the last drawing is huge! Why is this so big?
