Economic, cultural, & social growth
in Downtown Fort Collins

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.

2023 Downtown Fort Collins Parking and Travel Habit Survey Analysis

This report, prepared by the Downtown Development Authority (DDA), was based on a survey conducted from January 20th to February 12, 2023. The survey was distributed through the DDA’s Destination Downtown newsletter, Downtown Fort Collins Facebook, and Instagram social media.

The survey data is intended to inform the DDA’s Business Marketing and Communications Program activities. This survey will also be shared with the City of Fort Collins Parking Services and FC Moves departments for interrelated planning efforts.
