Adopt A Neighbor Program Expansion for Neighbors Needing Assistance During Self-Quarantine
We are in a unique and uncertain time, but we are in it together. The coronavirus situation puts some of our friends, families and neighbors at greater risk. The City is seeking healthy volunteers to assist with services to our vulnerable populations. We are launching an expansion of the Adopt-A-Neighbor program to pair volunteers with neighbors in need during the current pandemic.

September 27, 2020: FoCo Pop Up#
Neighborhood Services, FC Moves, and Fort Collins Connexion hosted the first "FoCo Pop Up" event on Sept. 27, 2020, to get neighbors outside and connected!
The event brought temporary, COVID-conscious, "pop up" activities to neighborhoods across the city. A different Pop Up from the City of Fort Collins or community partner was placed in 14 City parks. Neighbors could travel between these activities on low-stress bike routes throughout the city.
Neighborhood Services would like to thank everyone who helped make this event possible. It was such a success!
We’re currently discussing what the future of FoCo Pop Up looks like, and this page will have more information when it’s available. Until then, enjoy the memories of the 2020 event!
Sustainable Neighborhoods Fort Collins#
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. Learn more!
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.

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.

Regarding Legal Questions
Any citizen seeking information about his or her individual rights and responsibilities should contact a private attorney, or seek other legal assistance. Neighborhood Services staff cannot offer any legal advice.
