Fort Collins Downtown Development Authority

The Downtown Development Authority is a steward of the neighborhood at the heart of Fort Collins – the Downtown.

Since our inception in 1981 by a vote of district property owners and residents, the DDA had been guided by our Plan of Development and our

Mission: to build public-private investment partnerships that foster economic, cultural and social growth in the central business district.

COVID-19 and Old Town Square Events

The health and wellness of our team and community-at-large is a priority of the Fort Collins Downtown Development Authority.  To support this effort, the DDA is adhering to the directives issued by State and County public health officials, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention relative to COVID-19. 

 As of June 23,2020 the DDA is NOT accepting applications for event licenses for Old Town Square for any group gathering over 10-persons.  

  The DDA evaluated the adopted regulations of the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment and the Larimer County Health Department for Guidance on Outdoor Events, and determined that our legal mandates to ensure undeterred public access to Old Town Square and the adjacent businesses must be given priority over the use of the plaza area for outdoor events until further notice.  

 We look forward to the future when Old Town Square will once again be available for large organized gatherings and events.  Until then, please enjoy the amenities of the plaza, its businesses and restaurants in small, safely distanced groups.
