Project Overview

The City of Montrose and Colorado Mesa University (CMU) have collectively been working over the years to expand the CMU campus and improve the campus experience within downtown Montrose. As a continuation of this effort, CMU is currently working on a remodel of Cascade Hall (336 South 3rd Street) and the City of Montrose has been planning to perform street and sidewalk maintenance/improvements on South 3rd Street. These overlapping projects have created an opportunity to collectively improve South 3rd Street to meet the long-term needs of both entities. To that end, the city and CMU envision converting a portion of South 3rd Street into a parking lot with a landscaped extension of the CMU plaza (see overview drawing). The project will also add eight parking spaces to the area.
