  • Shawna VanZee, Planning Associate, 970-224-6086,

The City of Fort Collins Land Use Code (LUC) regulates zoning, building design, structure use and more. Originally written in 1997, it has been updated regularly to address specific code issues. To ensure the LUC continues to support the City’s adopted goals and policies in City Plan and the Housing Strategic Plan, there will be more comprehensive updates in 2021 and beyond. Before proposing specific changes, the City would like to better understand what needs to change, and why the changes are needed.

Community members are first invited to join virtual sessions about how Fort Collins has changed, what land use regulations can do, and housing capacity and choices (Spanish translation provided). These informational sessions will lead into opportunities for community dialogue later this fall..
