  • Logan Simpson Assisting City of Fort Collins with Lincoln Corridor Plan

    Logan Simpson is assisting the City of Fort Collins with the Lincoln Corridor Plan. Lincoln Avenue between Jefferson Street and Lemay Avenue is a critical connection between Fort Collins’ downtown and the eastern part of the community. It contains a rich and eclectic mix of historic neighborhoods; old and new businesses; and public/private open space. Changes are occurring rapidly along this corridor, and development of the Link-N-Greens site into a major employment center will transform how the street functions.

LSD will assist the city in developing a compelling vision and to identify and prioritize improvements to the street and surrounding area.
