    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:

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

    Fort Collins will undoubtedly be a different place in 2040. But how radically should the city lean into emerging trends and forces that will shape that change?

  • Our Vision for Fort Collins: RSVP for Community Workshops

    8 months ago
    0329 2018 visioning halfsheet cropped

    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.

    Wednesday, April 11 |6-8pm

    Northside Aztlan Center, Eagle Room | 112 E Willow St | map

    Thursday, April 12 |6-8pm

    Senior Center, Prairie Sage Room | 1200 Raintree Dr | map

  • Kickoff Video, Summary, and Draft Trends and Forces Report Now Available

    9 months ago
    Kickoff photo

    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.
