Make yours happier, healthier and safer!

“…every place has people who love it. Find them. Bring them together, ask them for their help. Find what is lovable about your place and make it better.” (Peter Kageyama, For The Love Of Cities)

The health of our community depends first on the relationships with the people closest to us. Friendship with our neighbors keeps us from focusing on differences and becoming isolated, helping to bring together diverse people within a community. The Neighborhood Connections Program supports growing relationships in neighborhoods by educating connectors that start on their own block, bringing people together. It hopes to create more cooperative and lively neighborhoods, while improving access to City services. Through supporting our neighbors while they connect with each other, we take the first step to a healthier, safer, and friendlier Fort Collins.

What is the program?

The core education consists of 9 (no cost) class hours offered at 3 different times over the year, so participants can choose a time that works for them. The series focuses on communication, collaboration, and the basics of neighboring, with tangible goals.

The program will offer you assistance planning and organizing an event or gathering to bring your neighbors together, and will offer grant funding to help make this event possible.


What's next?

Participants have access to (no cost) continuing education classes offered on a monthly basis on a wide variety of topics. Come to as many topics as you'd like; they are always free of charge.

What's coming up in Continuing Education?

June: A closer look at City Services: FCMoves, Transfort, and Natural Areas. Learn what's being done in your neighborhood! June 14th at Rolland Moore Park, Shelter 2 from 5:30-6:30pm
