Turn Toward Tomorrow

My favorite definition of innovation is the positive reinforcement of ideas.  That effort is dependent on the quality of those you share ideas with.  Right now the entire globe is focused on beating this virus that has disrupted most life on earth.  

I believe that will lead to unimaginable innovation.  Much faster than anyone ever conceived of before.  It's a new world in many ways, and we will be stronger when this is all over than we were when it started.  

As we have watched the world respond over the last 45 days I believe this innovation is going to be astounding.  Things will most certainly change going forward, but I believe much of that change will be for our good.  

What will housing and community development look like in the Post CV19 world?  We will begin exploring that soon.


Located in Fort Collins, Colorado, Montava is a community built on 20 years of planning and generations of passion. Montava is a complete community focused on connecting people to their food, the environment, to nature and to each other.


We are a community built on innovation that is inevitable in a world class university town.  Colorado State University is at the heart of this incredibly unique, comfortable, contagiously ambitious community that is Fort Collins.    

Complete Community

Connected, Mixed Use, Diverse

Far from a typical neighborhood of houses, a complete community is an planning concept that aims to meet the basic needs of all residents in a community through integrated land use planning, transportation planning, and community design.  Where diversity across a wide range of age, income, culture and ideas is enabled.

Pick a topic to explore what New Urbanism is

Designed By DPZ, The Global Leader In Community Planning 

New Urbanism is a planning and development approach based on the principles of how cities and towns had been built for the last several centuries: walkable blocks and streets, housing and shopping in close proximity, and accessible public spaces. In other words: New Urbanism focuses on human-scaled urban design. 

This is the approach we have embraced with Montava.  It is safer, healthier, more sustainable, and more connected.   What does thriving look like?  Let's find out together!

What is an Agri-Urban Community?

Productive, Beautiful, Educational

There is a rich history of agriculture in Fort Collins.  We are embracing this history by integrating true urban farming into the DNA of Montava.  By setting aside land that can be used to grow a wide variety of produce, we can foster people's connection with their food at this most basic level. With our partners at Native Hill Farm, Montava will become a sustaining influence for generations.
