I-25 & Erie Parkway Master Plan

I-25 and Erie Parkway Aerial View

The I-25 and Erie Parkway Master Plan encompasses the 1,280 acres of land located at the northwest corner of I-25 and Erie Parkway. The Town's intent is to create a regionally-scaled retail and employment center at Erie's eastern gateway servicing the Northern Colorado marketplace that is recognized as a true destination where businesses and people flourish. The vision for the development future of the Plan area is one that maximizes the site's revenue generating potential while employing sound land use and high quality design principles.

The goal of the Master Plan is to address the establishment of a truly unique place; one that will provide for the integration of land uses, multiple modes of transportation, incorporation of unique architectural elements, and the efficient use of both public and private spaces.
