With technological advances, the sheer amount of data available to cities has skyrocketed. How can residents help cities make data useful? The City and the CSU Center for Public Deliberation will host a community conversation on data - “At Our Fingertips: A Conversation on Data and Democracy” - at the biannual Community Issues Forum on April 25.

The event will be from 6-8:30 p.m. at the Fort Collins Senior Center, 1200 Raintree Drive. Due to limited space, registration is required at

Student facilitators will walk participants through the conversation and gather insights to help the City consider next steps toward making Fort Collins a national leader in doing data right. What should the City collect, how should it be shared, and how can it best be analyzed and used to solve problems, share stories, and improve quality of life? What’s the role of residents?

A meal will be provided, and interactive kids’ activities will be available for kids older than 12 months.
