Action Alert: 

The City of Fort Collins Foothills Natural Areas Department is hosting an Open House to discuss the Foothills area management plan. Potential changes to Maxwell trail are on the list of things to be discussed. The City of Fort Collins Foothills Natural Areas was kind enough to give the cycling community a specific venue to voice our concerns, it's imperative that we take advantage of this opportunity.  Please attend if you can. Your voice matters.

Hello Friends in the Cycling Community,

We thought you’d be interested to know that it is time to update the City of Fort Collins Foothills Natural Areas Management Plan that applies to Coyote RidgePineridgeMaxwell, and Reservoir Ridge natural areas and the Foothills Trail.

Work on the plan includes setting goals and strategies for promoting ecological integrity, protecting natural and cultural resources, and connecting people to nature. The process for developing the Foothills Plan also includes analyzing the existing management plan, evaluating visitor amenities (including trails) and facilitating a public engagement process.

Due to expected high attendance, cyclists are invited to an Open House where you can learn about what makes the foothills natural areas special, and share your thoughts on goals and strategies to promote ecological integrity, protect natural and cultural resources, and connect people to nature. Non-cyclists may participate as well. The same information and staff will be at an Open House April 16.
