Plans to revitalize North Nevada corridor move forward


COLORADO SPRINGS — The Colorado Springs City Council has approved three important items to further revitalization of the North Nevada corridor and implement the approved North Nevada Avenue Master Plan. These items will allow city planners to begin work on transportation and infrastructure improvements and will guide the future of private development in the area.

“We’re pleased that City Council has approved the transportation sub-plan, zoning overlay and design guidelines for the North Nevada corridor, paving the way for city departments and the private sector to work together on projects that will create a more vibrant corridor,” said Nina Vetter, project manager.

More than 900 residents participated in the creation of the North Nevada Avenue Master Plan, which was approved in early 2017. The plan focuses on the corridor from Garden of the Gods Road /Austin Bluffs Parkway south to the Rock Island Trail/railroad right-of-way a few blocks south of Fillmore Street.

 “Transportation was highlighted as a priority by participants in the master plan and we will explore options and seek public input during a transit study this year,” said Craig Blewitt, Mountain Metropolitan Transit Services Manager. The transit study is expected to take place in late summer or early fall.
