River Protection, Development and Enhancement

Screen Shot 2013-12-09 at 4.40.50 PMThe River Protection, Development and Enhancement Task Group, by providing a concise set of objectives and solutions, aimed to create a unique downtown river setting that enhances the natural river environment, increases pedestrian access and recreation, protects historic resources, improves the CSU/Downtown connection, and capitalizes on opportunities for development that is sensitive to the river environment.

The following priority set of objectives and solutions was created by a balanced citizen and government-based group over several months:
1. Environmental Improvement and Stewardship
2. Coordinated Plan for Interpretation and Education
3. Transportation and Access Infrastructure

A specific outcome from this task group was the creation and distribution of The Urban Cache la Poudre River, a pocket-size interpretive map and guide which highlighted recreation, fishing, history, trails and wildlife throughout the river’s urban corridor.


The Poudre Runs Through It : Northern Colorado’s Water Future was launched in 2011 to bring together those of us who love the Poudre River to better understand it and the role it plays in our lives. The Colorado Water Institute at Colorado State University joined with UniverCity Connections and the Community Foundation of Northern Colorado to offer a three month series for the public of Fort Collins and neighboring areas.
