The City's Development Review Center is experiencing high volumes of development review project submittals at this time. In order to maintain efficient project reviews and provide accurate, timely responses to inquiries, the City is enacting a series of measures related to the submittal process that may impact you as an applicant.

  • Appointments are required for all submittals or resubmittals. Please call the Development Review Center at 970-416-2740 to schedule an appointment time.
  • Only complete submittals are accepted. Consistent with Land Use Code requirements, the submittal will be returned to the applicant if any required materials or application fees are missing or insufficient.
  • All complete applications submitted Monday morning through Wednesday noon will be routed the same week. Submittals received after Wednesday noon will be routed the following week.

Please note that applications received earlier in the week will make it easier for Development Review Center staff to distribute plans to reviewing City departments and other referral agencies.

Building permit applications are accepted at any time during business hours, and without appointment.

What is Historic Preservation?

Spotlight image: What is Historic Preservation?

Our mission is to protect, enhance, and preserve Fort Collins’ significant historical, architectural and geographical heritage in order to advance the economic, cultural and environmental qualities of the city.

Fort Collins has over 1,800 Fort Collins Landmarks and five Landmark Districts. A Fort Collins Landmark is a site, building, structure or object. Landmark Districts are a specific group of homes and outbuildings united by past events or people, or by architecture and physical development. Fort Collins Landmarks and Landmark Districts are officially recognized by City Council.

We collaborate with citizens, developers, and staff, participating in key community planning and development projects affecting over 10,000 historic and cultural resources in Fort Collins.  New construction, and the demolition or alteration of existing buildings, and design review of Fort Collins Landmarks are reviewed for their effects on neighborhood and community character.

Good design and rehabilitation of historic homes and businesses is encouraged through a large number of financial incentive programs. The Historic Preservation Office has also undertaken over 70 historic preservation grants, translating into over $21,000,000.00 in direct and indirect revenue. 

We offer advice on how to maintain your property, fix and repair features, and restore features back to the original condition. We want you to connect with your property’s history and provide the steps how to research your property. Discover more about Fort Collins’ history through research projects including historical contexts, survey reports, and development grants.
