Have you ever thought about what Fort Collins might look and feel like 20 years from now?
The latest update to City Plan will be getting underway this winter, and we hope you will help shape the community’s vision for Fort Collins! City Plan will address land use, transportation and transit, and many other topics. When adopted by City Council, the new City Plan will be the overarching policy document guiding decisions and public and private development throughout Fort Collins.
What Is City Plan, Anyway?
City Plan is the comprehensive plan for Fort Collins, and is a policy guide for decisions about our future. One of the earliest and most important parts of developing City Plan will be describing a shared community vision – what kind of place do we want Fort Collins to be in 20 years? We will be attending community festivals and events, facilitating public meetings, and providing lots of opportunities to share your thoughts both in person and online.
Next, we will create several scenarios that illustrate what the future might look like. How will our transportation system change? Where will people live, work, and play? How could the remaining vacant land in Fort Collins develop? After facilitating community discussions about the scenarios, we will then develop policies that will help achieve the kind of future the community envisions for Fort Collins.
Have Ideas? Get Involved!
The best future for Fort Collins is one that we all shape together. As we get underway with City Plan this summer, we hope you will share your enthusiasm, time, and ideas with us! Updating City Plan will take about 18-24 months, and your input will be critical. Each phase of the plan will include lots of opportunities for you to share ideas and participate in the planning process. Register now to stay informed about upcoming events!
