Bike and Walk with Us in 2024#

Participants on foot listen to a City employee talking.

FC Moves will be co-hosting several biking and walking tours throughout 2024, and we would love it if you joined us! 

  • Watershed Tour
    FC Moves and Utilities are teaming up for a watershed tour. On a short (~1 mile) walking tour near the Poudre River Trail, participants will learn from Fort Collins staff about how our City monitors and protects our local water quality and manages storm water to minimize dangers from urban flooding. The tour will include a stop at the Whitewater Park as an example of a collaborative project that focuses on both human and environmental benefits.
  • Xeriscape Tours
    FC Moves, in partnership with Utilities and Natural Areas, will be hosting several xeriscape garden biking and walking tours. Curious about converting your yard to a native or xeriscape garden? Learn more about waterwise landscapes, the Xeriscape Incentive Program, native plants and pollinators, and other important information on these tours.

First Painted Curb Extensions at Roosevelt and Maple!#

Young person painting the street.

Many thanks to everyone who came out on Sunday, July 9th to assist with the installation of our city's FIRST painted curb extensions! Asphalt art is a tangible example of the power of community. Together we installed a traffic calming, art installation in a single day. Not only are painted curb extensions an effective traffic calming application, the participatory nature of these projects enriches our lives by strengthening the fabric of community. Coupling curb extensions with plastic delineator posts and asphalt art we expect to see a reduction in vehicular speeds and vulnerable road user conflicts at this intersection. These results will be tracked and reported once post installation data has been gathered. Check back here for more information about future installations and thank you again for your support!
