View Executive Summary
The City of Fort Collins has a bright vision for the growth of the city outlined in the 2018 City Plan. However, the current land us code does not align with the values and vision of the City Plan. This report provides a framework for updating the Land Use Code specifically to provide strategies for the development of “Missing Middle Housing” types in the urban core. These strategies will help align the code with the Values and Visions of the City Plan.
