MAX: Parking, building height raise concerns

FORT COLLINS – Parking and tall buildings are among the main concerns Fort Collins residents have about development of the Mason Corridor and MAX Bus Rapid Transit system, according to a survey by the Fort Collins Board of Realtors.

Seventy percent of respondents said that finding space for parking at new businesses that are developed along the corridor will be a problem.

In addition, 69 percent of respondents were concerned about a lack of parking for new housing developments, according to the survey.

When asked if they thought that tall buildings would be an obstacle to development, 63 percent of respondents said that it would be a “huge” or “medium” obstacle. Nineteen percent thought tall buildings would be a “small” obstacle.

The Fort Collins Board of Realtors conducted the survey in order to work with the Fort Collins City Council and other stakeholders to address concerns about the project.

The board will also use the information in the survey to continue its efforts to protect affordable housing options in the community.

The survey was conducted by America Strategies Inc. and reached 400 adults between Feb. 10 and 12.
