Exterior Lighting Code 00:18:13

The purpose of this item is to discuss changes to the Exterior Lighting Standards in the City’s Land Use Code for new commercial and multi-family development projects. The goals of the code update are to ensure adequate light levels for safety and commerce; update technical criteria to align with current industry metrics; better control the various aspects of light pollution (overlighting, glare, light trespass); and require contextually appropriate lighting plans that result in lower lighting in areas with lower nighttime activity (Natural Areas and residential areas), and higher lighting levels in areas with higher nighttime activity (Downtown and commercial corridors).

Visit Fort Collins & Tourism Improvement District 01:27:15

The purpose of this item is to provide an update on Visit Fort Collins, COVID-19 impacts to the travel and tourism industry, the Destination Master Plan, and to discuss the opportunity of additional funding through the creation of a Tourism Business Improvement District.
