Parking Enforcement Suspended
Parking Services is currently operating at an emergency support level of coverage and patrol for the Downtown area. In light of the low volume of customers visiting the Downtown area, Parking Services is supporting the business owners and employees who are required to be Downtown and/or who are supporting Downtown by suspending enforcement of non-safety related violations.
These efforts will remain in place for at least 15 days after coronavirus-related restrictions are lifted in order to help businesses recover. For more information about which enforcement activities will be suspended and which ones will continue, visit fcgov.com/parking.
Did you know today is Census Day? And 42.3% of Fort Collins households have already responded! You can complete your Census whenever you have a moment in the next few weeks, but answers should reflect who is living in your household on April 1.
The Census online self-response portal is open and takes just a few minutes to complete. Go to www.2020census.gov to complete the Census for your household and encourage your family, friends and neighbors to do the same.
A complete and accurate count will be even more important in the coming year to ensure necessary federal funding to our community as we recover.
Considering the current situation with COVID-19, the federal government is making changes to protect the health and safety of their Census workforce while working toward a complete and accurate count. They’ve extended the self-response deadline through August 14 and pushed back field operations to April 15.
