  • Public Review Timeline

    Community values

    It's going to be a busy few months for City Plan! Our New Year's resolution is to get City Plan ready for a mid-March adoption date, and we need your help to shape the final content.

    Over the next couple of months, we’ll be releasing draft content every few weeks for your review and suggestions. Are we setting the right tone with the community vision? Are there still gaps in our policy direction for an important community issue? Are those oxford commas just too much?

    Everything is fair game and we hope you’ll take the time to help us improve the draft plan before we present it to Council for their consideration.


    Public Review Timeline

    For those of you who like to write to-do lists and put things on your calendars early, here’s an outline of all of the key dates for City Plan's public review:

    • Big Ideas - January 18-February 15
    • Principles, Policies, and Implementation Strategies - February 1-February 15
    • Adoption Draft Preview - March 6-March 15

    We will be sharing specific content and asking key questions for each piece of the City Plan draft, but you can always send us comments about any part of the plan during the public review period by emailing cityplan@fcgov.com. Right now we are looking for input on the Draft City Plan Vision, available here!


    Stay Tuned for Public Events

    We'll be hosting another round of public meetings, Plan Ambassador gatherings, and Community Partner events to share the draft plan in early February. We are still finalizing dates and venues, so stay tuned for more information about when and where we will be holding draft plan open houses.

    The panel will include experts discussing future trends in transit and mobility, with an introduction from Mayor Wade Troxell and time for Q&A from the audience. Topics include on-demand service, shared mobility innovations, autonomous vehicles, and expansion of and funding options for transit service in Fort Collins. Click to RSVP.

    Lincoln Center, Columbine Room | 417 W. Magnolia Street | map
