A big THANK YOU to everyone who joined us at the City Plan kickoff event on February 12! It was an exciting night of envisioning the future of Fort Collins together as a community. Over 500 people attended the kickoff event and we are grateful for the time, energy, and enthusiasm everyone brought to the City Plan process. Thanks also to Bryan Willson, Executive Director of the Energy Institute at Colorado State University. His keynote remarks addressed what innovation is, how it has shaped our history, and how it can lead to success in Fort Collins. To see the full presentations from the event, check out the video HERE!
During the Open House portion of the event, community members had an opportunity to share their ideas and concerns and to learn more about how to stay connected throughout the City Plan process. Community members were also asked to fill out a "report card" to grade the existing conditions and trends of Fort Collins and to evaluate how the various focus areas should be prioritized moving forward. To read more about what we heard from the community, check out the Kickoff Event Summary.
The City Plan kickoff was the first time we shared the draft City Plan Trends and Forces Report with the public. This report highlights major trends and key issues facing the City of Fort Collins, and will help guide the focus areas of City Plan as we move into the visioning phase.
If you couldn't come to the kickoff event, we hope you will add your thoughts online! Share your responses to the Big Questions or click on the Forum tab to join the conversation. You can also take our Quick Poll on the right side of this page to tell us which focus area is most important to you.
