East Colorado Specific Plan

East Colorado Specific Plan Area


The East Colorado Specific Plan received approval from the City Council on February 28th. The plan is anticipated to become effective early summer. The plan area encompasses the 1.4-mile section of Colorado Boulevard between Wilson Avenue on the west and Roosevelt Avenue on the east. The plan area also includes Green Street between Wilson and Holliston Avenue, and Allen Avenue between Colorado Boulevard and Corson Street.
The approved plan includes new regulations and development standards that would help implement the plan’s vision for vibrant and well-connected mixed-use districts that provide multi-family housing, neighborhood and innovated businesses, and places for locals and students to learn, dine, and shop, all within walking distance to public transit.
