Below the tracks The design would let walkers and bicyclists on Coffman Street cross under the railroad tracks, making the station more accessible from the small parking lots.
south of the rail platform and in easy walking distance while the east side would emphasize office and commercial uses.
the city's concept plans should hold up, if there's enough interest in the area in the first place, city transportation planner Phil Greenwald said.
The station is due to come by 2015, though the "train" part of that is up to the Regional Transportation District board. On March 20, the board will decide whether to follow through with its voter approved rail service to Longmont, or to offer bus rapid transit service instead.
LONGMONT Even if FasTracks derails, there are still plans for First and Main.
A final version of the plan is expected to go before the city's transportation board and planning commission in April, then to the City Council for consideration in May.
On Monday, the city will show off ideas for redeveloping the area near First Avenue and Main Street, the planned site for Longmont's future bus/train station.
Touch the neighborhood lightly The concept is called a "density cone"; have the densest land use closest to the station and then lighten the effects as it ripples out from there. One example is the nearby Budget Home Center, which in many early designs had been overlapped by a huge parking lot. Now, Greenwald said, the idea is to instead have a series of smaller parking areas probably near the area's electrical substation that would let RTD leave the business alone.
the First and Main area.
If you go
"It's not just the station that spurs redevelopment," Greenwald said. "We're counting on this center, this transportation hub, to help spur some of the development around it . but there has to be a market here anyway for folks to come in. It can't just be centered on the transportation piece."
Hold the turkey No one was interested in seeing another heavy industrial site drop into the old Butterball plant, Greenwald said. What could go there is still unclear, partly because the land is Butterball's to dispose of, but the uses could include medical or even arts related uses, Greenwald said.
Where: Longmont Public Library, 409 Fourth Ave., meeting rooms A and B.
A group of residents and consultants has worked on the concept since August. Some of the basic ideas that have come out include:
Longmont looks at the future of First and Main
Spruce it up Streetscaping would be extended south on Main Street, from Third Avenue to the bridge south of Boston Avenue. Longer term, new "gateway bridges" for Main Street and South Pratt Parkway across the St. Vrain River are also proposed. The design encourages showing off the St. Vrain River corridor itself the subject of redevelopment plans instead of obscuring it. "It's something we want to put our face to instead of our back to," Greenwald said.
First and Main workshop
"This is a first look at what the area could look like," Greenwald emphasized. "The idea is to have some flexibility built into the plan, so that as the situation changes, different uses can go in."

Mix it up Much of the area is expected to be zoned for mixed use Prada Backpack Purse development, Greenwald said. That allows both commercial and residential in the same neighborhood, maybe even in the same building. The residential part would be centered on the west side of Main Street just Prada Bags Fall 2017
