Fort Collins Urban Design Awards#

Fort Collins Urban Design Awards logo

The City of Fort Collins celebrates great places and people who design them. Join us in promoting awareness of urban design, and its importance for the quality of life in our community. Urban design ranges from a city or city subarea to a single outdoor space and considers the look and feel, as well as environmental, economic and social consequences of design. It is not simply concerned with new development but also with the maintenance and enhancement of existing development. Come celebrate what's been accomplished!

These awards were first given in the fall of 2006, again in 2008, 2011, 2013, 2015 and most recently in 2019. The selection process starts with a call for entries and ends with a committee (made up of local designers, city board members, and city staff) selecting winners from the applications. The process culminates with an awards ceremony.
