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!

Animal Control Enforcement#

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.
