Mountain Ave. is the backbone of our community, connecting travelers from I25 west to Highway 287. As visitors and residents travel the 6 miles of roadway, they are taken through agricultural land, downtown Berthoud, residential neighborhoods and out west to future growth areas.
As Berthoud grows it’s critical to preserve the character of our community. The Mountain Ave. Plan is intended to create a long-term vision for the corridor creating a cohesive plan that is reflective of what residents want Berthoud to become.
As you travel through Berthoud there are a series of character districts along Mountain Ave. These range from agricultural, to commercial, to residential. The Corridor Plan identifies each character district and celebrates each zone with a unique plan that connects together seamlessly. This will be done be establishing roadway design standards and architectural regulations for new development that enhance the existing character of each unique district.
On April 2, 2019, 60 community members participated in an open house event that was hosted at Town Hall. The event presented several visions for each character district, along with descriptions of primary goals for each district. Residents who attended were able to vote on the vision that best matched their hopes for the future.
This feedback ensures that our plans match community expectations and public sentiment for the future of our Town. The feedback that was received was taken and included in the final plan. The plan was presented to the Planning Commission on August 22, 2019 where they recommended it be forwarded to the Town Board. The final plan is scheduled to be heard by the Town Board on Wednesday, September 11, 2019 at 6:30 p.m.. Mountain Avenue Overlay Plan
