Strengthen the Old Town Square brand
Develop a multi-layered flexible framework
Improve the wayfinding network
Promote OTS as a family-friendly destination
The design needed to not only celebrate the history and culture of Fort Collins, but also enhance and improve the year-round experience of all stakeholders utilizing the Public Plaza. The team conducted nine different stakeholder meetings, three public open houses, a field trip to similar projects in the Denver area as well as an online survey to gather input.
