Fort Collins City Council sets Montava hearing for Jan. 14



Montava, Fort Collins’ biggest proposed development in recent history, will have its day in Fort Collins City Council chambers on Jan. 14. 

Council had intended to review Montava’s Planned Unit Development master plan, a high-level planning document, at its Tuesday meeting. But two council members couldn’t attend the meeting, so council voted unanimously on Tuesday to bump the hearing to next week. It’s the only agenda item for the meeting, which will take place at 6 p.m. at 300 Laporte Ave.

Plans for Montava in north Fort Collins include an estimated 3,900 energy- and water-efficient homes; a 40-acre working farm and 80-acre community park; town center; and an array of schools, trails, retail and other features. The $300 million HF2M development would be located on more than 850 acres west of the Anheuser-Busch brewery and built over the next 25 years. The development can’t move forward without council approval of the planned unit development master plan.

The Jan. 14 hearing will include an opportunity for public comment. Council meetings generally end by 10:30 p.m., so a high volume of public comment could result in a continuance to the following week.

The meeting will be live-streamed at
