Welcome, and thank you for your interest in the 2021 Budget!

Generally, the City creates a biennial budget every two years using the Budgeting for Outcomes (BFO) process. BFO focuses on outcomes and results, not on cost, and puts the community’s values and priorities first.

Due to the economic uncertainty related to COVID-19, the City will create a one-year 2021 Recommended Budget for City Council to consider this fall. Typically, the City does more robust outreach prior to publishing the City Manager’s Recommended Budget. Given the constrained timeline and the shift to a one-year budget, this year’s engagement will be a little different.

Opportunities for you to help shape the Recommended Budget will be available starting in mid-July, with additional opportunities to provide feedback directly to City Council throughout the fall as they consider and modify the recommended budget before final adoption in November.


What is Budgeting For Outcomes?

For 15 years, BFO has helped the City identify and fund various programs and services to achieve different community outcomes. There are seven Key Outcome Areas and each has specific objectives and performance measures that make up the City’s Strategic Plan. Every funded budget item has to impact at least one of those objectives. The Strategic Plan is also updated every two years through extensive community engagement to ensure funded programs and services reflect the desires of the community. City Council unanimously adopted the 2020 Strategic Plan(External link) earlier this year.



Want to participate in this process?

Each week we will highlight one of the City's Seven Key Outcome Areas. We will cover information regarding what the outcome area is all about, including the objectives within. We want to make sure these objectives reflect the needs and aspirations of our community, so you will have a chance to rank the objectives in each area.

Bienvenido y gracias por su interés en el presupuesto del Gobierno de la Ciudad de Fort Collins para el año 2021!

Actualización del 5 de agosto: El enfoque de esta semana será en el Área Clave de Salud Social y Habitabilidad del Vecindario. Haga clic en las pestañas "Área de resultados" y "Encuesta" a continuación para obtener más información sobre y ayudar a la Ciudad a priorizar los servicios dentro de él.

Generalmente, la Ciudad crea un presupuesto bienal cada dos años usando el proceso de Presupuesto basado en Resultados (PbR) (Enlace externo). PbR se enfoca en la orientación de las acciones del gobierno hacia los resultados que la comunidad espera obtener y no en el costo.

Debido a la incertidumbre económica relacionada con COVID-19, el Gobierno de la Ciudad de Fort Collins creará un recomendación presupuestaria de un año para adopción en 2021 para consideración del Concejo Municipal. Por lo general, el gobierno realiza un proceso de participación pública más a fondo antes de publicar el presupuesto recomendado por el gerente de la ciudad. Dado el cronograma limitado y el cambio a un presupuesto de un año, la participación de este año será un poco diferente.

Las oportunidades para que usted ayude a dar forma la recomendación presupuestaria estarán disponibles a partir de mediados de julio, con oportunidades adicionales para aportar comentarios directamente al Concejo Municipal durante el otoño mientras consideran y modifican la recomendación presupuestaria antes de su adopción a finales de noviembre.

¿Qué es el Presupuesto basado en Resultados (PbR) ?

Durante 15 años, PbR ha ayudado a la Ciudad a identificar y financiar varios programas y servicios para lograr diferentes objetivos comunitarios. Hay siete Áreas de Resultados Clave y cada una tiene objetivos específicos y medidas de desempeño que conforman el Plan Estratégico de la Ciudad. Cada acción del gobierno financiada tiene que afectar al menos a uno de esos objetivos. El Plan Estratégico también se actualiza cada dos años a través de un amplio proceso de participación comunitaria para garantizar que los programas y servicios financiados reflejen los deseos de la comunidad. El Ayuntamiento adoptó por unanimidad el Plan Estratégico 2020 (Enlace externo) a principios de este año
