We’ve had a very busy month in Fort Collins

We’ve had a very busy month in Fort Collins. Here are some highlights:

  • There was a much needed snowstorm that dumped about 6” of heavy, wet snow to replenish our extremely dry forests. 
  • We have a heated city council election going on now that could reshape the city’s view on growth, jobs and the unpopular 3 unrelated rule pertaining to rental properties. 
  • President Obama signed a public lands bill into law designating 250,000 acres of the Rocky Mountain National Park as a wilderness area protecting the park’s vital land and water.  
  • Fort Collins was ranked #2 by Forbes magazine’s latest list of the best places for business and careers. 
  • A brand new library, Council Tree Library, opened in southeast Fort Collins.
  • The 4th annual boating and fishing expo is on April 4 and 5.
  • The Harlem Globetrotters will be playing at the Budweiser Event Center in April.
  • The Broncos had their hands forced to entertain trading their starting quarterback, Jay Cutler, over a silly dispute. 
  • The annual Easter egg hunts all around town are preparing for excited children looking for their yellow peeps and bunny shaped chocolate treats. 
  • And let’s not forget Ben & Jerry’s free ice cream cone day on April 21…get in line behind me as I might camp out for that one! 


 Lots of fun and exciting things are happening in Fort Collins so don’t miss out.  Just found out that we have another round of winter storms hitting us on April 1, but I don’t know if that is real or if the meteorologists are playing an April fools prank on us.  See you soon.
