Fort Collins...a modern, world-class community, transforming from a small city into a progressive metropolitan center. Planning, Development & Transportation teams up to successfully shape growth in our sustainable community with safe, efficient multi-modal infrastructure and plans for maximum livability.
NEW HOURS FOR THE DEVELOPMENT REVIEW CENTER - BUILDING SERVICES DEPARTMENT
The Development Review Center (including Building Services) located at 281 N. College Ave., will have new Customer Service Desk hours of 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. beginning June 1, 2018.
A City staff member will be available in the atrium from 8-9 a.m. and 4-5 p.m. to greet customers and answer questions, however, permits will not be issued during those times.
City staff will use the hours created with this change for dedicated, uninterrupted work time, including application processing and review, resulting in increased productivity and an overall improved level of services.
MAX Turns 5
Join us on May 11 to celebrate the MAX Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) 5-year anniversary! MAX BRT has been providing service to riders throughout our community for five years and we think that calls for a party.
MAX follows a dedicated transit-only guideway (its own road) and mixed-traffic streets that run parallel to the BNSF Railway between the South Transit Center (south of Harmony Road) and Downtown. It is served by 12 stations and stops.
Stay tuned for more details.

Electric Vehicle Readiness Roadmap
In 2018, the City of Fort Collins is developing an Electric Vehicle (EV) Readiness Roadmap to support current and future EV adoption in our community. The Roadmap will establish a vision, goals, and clearly defined roles for City of Fort Collins Departments, the private sector, and the Fort Collins community.
Sign Code Update Underway
Have you heard about an update to the Sign Code? A United States Supreme Court case, Reed v. Town of Gilbert has caused many municipalities to take a closer look at their sign regulations. Fort Collins started a review of the sign section of the Land Use Code in 2017. Visit Sign Code Updatefor more information.
Development Review Center
The City's Development Review Center is experiencing high volumes of development review project submittals at this time. In order to maintain efficient project reviews and provide accurate, timely responses to inquiries, the City is enacting a series of measures related to the submittal process that may impact you as an applicant.
- Appointments are required for all submittals or resubmittals. Please call the Development Review Center at 970-221-6689 to schedule an appointment time.
- Only complete submittals are accepted. Consistent with Land Use Code requirements, the submittal will be returned to the applicant if any required materials or application fees are missing or insufficient.
- All complete applications submitted Monday morning through Wednesday noon will be routed the same week. Submittals received after Wednesday noon will be routed the following week.
Please note that applications received earlier in the week will make it easier for Development Review Center staff to distribute plans to reviewing City departments and other referral agencies.
Building permit applications are accepted at any time during business hours and without an appointment.
