Developer Envisions High-Tech New Town In Colorado

Plans for a $1 billion eco-research campus and housing village, complete with a futuristic guided rail transit system, are underway in Fort Collins, Colorado.

"Colorado's own version of Tomorrowland is moving through the planning process in Fort Collins.

With seed money of about $30 million, developer Lloyd Goff and his investment partners hope to transform 50 city blocks on the north side of town into a $1 billion research campus similar to Los Alamos, N.M., and a mixed-use village with housing for 12,000.

The crown jewel of the development would be a guided transport system a la Disneyland.

Goff would like the research campus to focus on reducing America's dependence on foreign oil. Proposed areas of next-generation infrastructure research include transport, robotics, conservation, renewable energy, water recycling and automation."
