City of Fort Collins places 5th in the national Digital Cities Survey
We're pleased to announce that the City of Fort Collins placed 5th in the national 2013 Digital Cities Survey in the 125,000-249,999 population category.
The Center for Digital Government's Digital Cities Survey is conducted annually in the summer: July - August. All United States cities, towns, villages and consolidated city/county governments with populations of 30,000 or greater are invited to participate in this survey. The awards are presented concurrently with the National League of Cities conference held each November.
The City was the only Colorado winner in this population category. Details can be found at http://www.digitalcommunities.com/survey/cities/?year=2013

The Mason Corridor is a five mile north-south byway within the city of Fort Collins which extends from Cherry Street on the north to south of Harmony Road. The corridor is centered along the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway property, located a few hundred feet west of College Avenue (US 287).
The Mason Corridor includes a new bicycle and pedestrian trail as well as a planned Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system, known as MAX, in a fixed guideway for the majority of the corridor. Stations will incorporate new high-quality amenities that are similar to light rail, with low floor boarding platforms, sleek new busses, next bus arrival information, and pre-pay fare machines.
Through the Advanced Meter Fort Collins project, Fort Collins Utilities is upgrading mechanical electric and water meters in homes, schools and businesses throughout the community with electronic devices that will enable two-way digital communication between the meter and the utility.
