Dear friends, neighbors and colleagues - 

As we continue to explore what it might look like to begin reopening certain parts of our daily lives after the Stay-at-Home orders are lifted, it is important that we all continue to maintain careful health, sanitation and physical distancing measures. The last thing we want is to become complacent about these steps and inadvertently cause another spike in COVID-19 cases. Thank you for your diligence and patience, and for continuing to care for each other.

Take care,

Darin Atteberry, City Manager

City of Fort Collins Updates

Remote Adjourned Council Meeting & Work Session

Myrtle Street Shelter
The City of Fort Collins is allowing a building owned by the Colorado State University Research Foundation on Myrtle Street to be used as a shelter for those experiencing homelessness.

Although the Northside Aztlan Community Center has already been designated as a shelter, the Foundation-owned building, located at 1105 W. Myrtle Street, will be a shelter for those who are sick or have COVID-19 symptoms. The Myrtle Street building allows for proper quarantine procedures.

Regulatory

Continue Physical Distancing
As we go forward, it is important to continue to abide by the Stay-at-Home orders and to practice careful physical distancing when you do leave the house. Always maintain 6 feet or more of distance from other people, and wear a face mask when going to the grocery store, doctor’s office, or anywhere that physical distance is more challenging to maintain. And frequent hand-washing remains the best preventive measure against coronavirus. Continued vigilance can help to reduce additional spikes of positive cases within the region over the coming weeks.

Art in Public Places
The City of Fort Collins Art in Public Places is offering a virtual tour of their collection through @focoart. They are showcasing the newest Transformer Cabinet Murals along with the artists whom painted them. Shown above is Gale Whitman and her mural in River Rock Commons near Lee Martinez Park.

Their website shares art in our community parks and shows the location of transformer cabinet murals downtown. The City’s GIS mapping system shows the location of all public art in their collection. Next time you take a health break, walk, jog or bike ride, we hope you also enjoy the beauty art adds to our community.
