2017 Neighborhood Grants information is now available. The program is intended to help foster positive relationships and a sense of community pride through engagement and inclusion of neighbors. Grants are offered in amounts ranging from $25 - $500 to support neighborhood events such as block parties, potlucks, BBQs, community cleanups, beautification projects, and other events that bring neighbors together. Find more information online at http://www.fcgov.com/neighborhoodservices/grants.php.
If you've received a letter or seen a yellow sign about a neighborhood meeting or a hearing for a development proposal in your neighborhood and have questions, we can help. There are several online resources to learn more about neighborhood meetings, other upcoming events, and how you can participate in development review. If you have questions, please contact our office and request to speak with the Neighborhood Development Review Liaison.
Several animal control ordinances were changed to civil infractions from criminal misdemeanors. These code changes lessen the severity of the penalty to more accurately fit the “crime.” With the new codes, people in violation will get a civil citation with an immediate fine versus a possible criminal record, fines, and jail time. These changes also make enforcement quicker and easier with the goal of gaining compliance and relief from problems as quickly as possible. Common violations include: animal at large (off-leash), animal disturbance (barking dog), animal waste removal/pick-up, and any animal license/rabies vaccination violations. For more info, please visit the Larimer Humane Society.
