The City of Fort Collins invites the community to an Open House for the Historic Preservation Process Improvements Study on January 28, 5 to 7 p.m. at the Community Room, 215 N. Mason. The meeting is an opportunity for the community to join the discussion, provide feedback, and learn more about the process, study, and several code revisions being brought forward.
At the direction of City Council, in 2011, City staff began a two-part study of its historic preservation codes and processes, with a goal of increasing the transparency, predictability and effectiveness of the Historic Preservation Program. Phase One of this study was completed in 2012, when Council adopted several code revisions. Phase Two, which is now wrapping up, has involved a more comprehensive look at the Historic Preservation Program. Several process and code improvements were identified. The City is seeking additional public comment before finalizing the changes.
