Hello everyone - the dates for public work sessions and public hearings related to the Harmony Gateway Area Update have been posted in the "Key Dates" section to the right of this description. A public workshop will be scheduled in early October after seeking guidance from boards and commissions but before any public hearings on the proposed updates. All of those meetings are public and meeting times and locations can be found on the City's webpage: fcgov.com by searching for the board or commission listed. Please let me know if you have any questions about these dates or workshops. We will send notice of the public workshop date as soon as it is scheduled.


The original Harmony Corridor Plan was first adopted in 1991 as an element of the Comprehensive Plan (CityPlan). The plan was later updated in 2003 and again in 2006. This plan provides guidance for land use and urban design within the Harmony Corridor, stretching 5 miles from College Avenue to I-25.

One component of the adopted Harmony Corridor Plan is general direction for changes within the 'Gateway' Area that extends along both sides of Harmony Rd. from I-25 to the edge of the Cache La Poudre River valley, defined by a bluff just over a half-mile west of I-25. As the most-traveled entryway into Fort Collins, the 'Gateway' is viewed as the community's 'front door'.

This 'Gateway' Area is the focus of a proposed 2019 Harmony Corridor Plan Amendment that provides more detail about how the area will develop over time while retaining naturalistic landscape features generally described in the existing Plan. Several public workshops and community stakeholder gatherings have been held to discuss an update to the Plan for the Harmony 'Gateway' Area given changing conditions within this specific area and to the Fort Collins community since the Corridor Plan was adopted in 1991.

This page is meant to keep community members informed about upcoming public engagement events related to this project, offer a place to ask questions and offer comments during the process, and provide a space for documents and drafts as they become available.

Your comments and questions will be collected, reviewed and summarized for review by the decision-makers in this process, including City Council and the Planning and Zoning Board. If you would like to make longer, more detail public comments outside of this site to the staff and decision-makers in this process, please email statman-burruss@fcgov.com or send hard copies. Those comments will become part of the public record, but will not be posted publicly online or elsewhere. However, they can be made available through an Open Records Request.

Please contact statman-burruss@fcgov.com with questions regarding this process.
