Plan Fort Collins' planning process had three main phases: Phase 1: Understand, Phase 2: Envision and Analyze, and Phase 3: Implement and Adopt. The process was supported throughout by a three-pronged approach to communicate with and engage the community:
eNetwork, consisting of a website and social media, video clips and presentations, online surveys, etc.
Event Network, consisting of key public events such as workshops and public meetings that are well publicized through web and media.
Community Network, consisting of information conveyed to City boards and commissions and other groups and organizations such as service clubs via “roadshow” presentations and questionnaires.
