    FUTURE OF TRANSIT: Panel Discussion

    The City Plan scenarios include the potential for varying levels of expansion of our transit system, including bus rapid transit (BRT) and high frequency lines. Trends indicate that new technologies will likely result in new types of service not yet prevalent in the industry. Before finalizing a preferred scenario, the City Plan invites you to join us for an exploration of the ways these new technologies could impact transit provision in the future.

    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.

    EVENT DETAILS:

    November 28, 2018 | 6-8pm

  • Our Vision for Fort Collins: RSVP for Community Workshops

    Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

    The current version of City Plan sets a vision for the future of Fort Collins:

    "Through innovation, sustainability, and connections the City of Fort Collins aspires to create a vibrant, world-class community." (City Plan, 2011)

    But what does that vision mean to you? What is your vision for the future of our community?

    We would like to invite you to participate in workshop-style conversations about the City Plan vision. On four different days in April, we will be hosting facilitated, small-group conversations to delve more deeply into the existing City Plan vision. These workshops are an opportunity to discuss shared values, as well as the tradeoffs and tensions that occur when people have differing priorities. The input we receive from these visioning workshops will help refine and update the City Plan vision.

    Please join us! Space is limited for these workshops, so be sure to RSVP.

    EVENT DETAILS

    Identical visioning workshops will be held on four separate dates in four different parts of the community to provide an opportunity for smaller, workshop-style conversations. Light appetizers will be served at all events. Free childcare and language interpretation are also available, but please RSVP to help us provide the appropriate resources.
