PATHS has engaged with research by local planning and environmental experts and would like to share a few facts we've recently discovered regarding the Hughes property and the current proposed development.
If the information below speaks to you, we urge you to write a letter to the City of Ft. Collins and the Ft. Collins City Council ASAP sharing your thoughts, concerns, and ideas. If you've never done this before, not to worry. We've composed some helpful instructions on letter writing to your representatives here: https://www.pathsforhughes.com/take-action.html
We MUST have public engagement if we are to have a chance at a sustainable, community-friendly space at Hughes. It will not be possible if you don't take action.
So, choose a topic you're passionate about and write your letter today!
