Sustainable Neighborhoods Fort Collins
New in 2019! The Sustainable Neighborhoods Program is an opportunity for residents to join together to boost the environmental and social strength of their community. Neighborhoods earn credits toward certification by organizing workshops, projects, and events that enhance the livability of their neighborhood, connect neighbors, and reduce residents' ecological footprint.

The program is intended to help foster positive relationships and a sense of community pride through engagement and inclusion of neighbors. Typical grants range from $150 - $500 to support sustainable neighborhood events, workshops, and projects that bring neighbors together.

Lemonade Stand Summer 2019 Neighborhood Tour
The City Lemonade Stand will make surprise, pop-up appearances in neighborhoods around Fort Collins where City staff will serve up free ice-cold lemonade and chat with neighbors about City services, projects, or neighborhood issues. The City Lemonade Stand is also a mobile art piece, designed and fabricated by local artist, Todd Kundla, giving residents opportunities for whimsical interactions with the lemonade stand itself.
The City Lemonade Stand will be staffed by City departments, law enforcement officers, safety personnel, elected officials, and partner organizations to meet neighbors where they are and introduce a new way to directly communicate with City employees and decision-makers. If you would like to meet us, visit the neighborhoods on the tour schedule below and walk around the neighborhood to find our surprise location.

Animal Control Enforcement
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.
Intended to be a summary of state statutes and local ordinances, this handy guide will help inform Fort Collins landlords and tenants about many of the rights and responsibilities they each have in a legally binding contract.
