ACTIVE COMMITTEE ITEMS

City of Colorado Springs – Major Thoroughfare Plan

(a component of ConnectCOS)

The Major Thoroughfare Plan gets approved by City Council by ordinance and is what HBA will have an interest in. This Plan is a map that shows the classification of existing and future roadways that have a classification of minor arterial and above. Once adopted future development will need to conform to the Major Thoroughfare Plan. The last time the Major Thoroughfare Plan was adopted by ordinance by Council was 2011.

HBA will have representatives on a stakeholder committee and will have opportunity to be involved in the development and review of both ConnectCOS and the Major Thoroughfare Plan. The stakeholder committee will be given a project schedule with major project milestones.

Below are projected dates for deliverables and review:
• Major Thoroughfare Plan – End of 2020
• Draft ConnectCOS – 1st quarter 2021
