Trail Distancing Reminders
Walking, hiking, and biking individually are great ways to stay active. Help keep our community safe and healthy by practicing physical distancing when enjoying the outdoors.

  • Be sure to keep at least six feet away from others, both while riding and at trailheads, and limit exercise activities to include only people inside your household.
  • If the trail you’re planning to visit looks crowded, consider returning at a different time or checking out another area. There are plenty of others to choose from! Some City Natural Areas have cameras at trailheads that you can check before you leave:

Telephone Town Hall Reminder

Please register by 8 a.m. Thursday, at least two hours prior to the event time, to reserve your spot.

The format will be similar to Monday's town hall, and translation services will be available. We highly encourage businesses to participate in Thursday's call.

Support Fort Collins Business
Our small businesses need us more than ever. Support your favorite Fort Collins businesses today by visiting Support Fort Collins Business, a tool that maps out businesses offering gift cards, delivery, take-out and other specials.

Businesses may also create a 'business registry' to share one to three wishes or requests that community members and other businesses can help provide. Examples could range from: please rate and like us on social media, send a loved one an online gift card from our online store, share a marketing/banking contact, connect with a peer/mentor in similar industry, etc. If businesses choose to create a 'registry' we're asking them to provide their email so community members or other businesses can reach out to the business directly to fulfill their registry item.
