We are members of the FoCo community aligned in resisting the Lennar housing development plan at the Old Hughes Stadium Space. Our objective is to find a more sustainable, community-friendly alternative to the current 600 to 700 homes planned at this site.

WELCOME TO THE PUBLIC ENGAGEMENT SITE FOR THE FORMER HUGHES STADIUM DEVELOPMENT PROJECT
This site is for members of the public who want a voice in the future of this special area, and the impacts it will have on the City of Fort Collins.
Colorado State University currently owns the property, and is working to sell it to luxury housing developer, Lennar Homes for approximately $10 million. To realize their intent to build 600 homes on the site, Lennar Homes and CSU must convince the City of Ft. Collins to change zoning laws governing the property. In order to change these laws, the City of Ft. Collins must first engage with the public and hear what residents want for the property. The City is currently doing just that, and this site is dedicated to helping the public organize & maintain a voice throughout the process.
Because many people may not be currently using Facebook, another online home is needed to make sure non-Facebookers are included in organizing and engaging on this important issue. Welcome to that place.
Here, anyone from the public can have discussions, organize, stay informed of events, plan public-led meetings and read and share documents.
Every person who's interested in the future of the former Hughes Stadium area is welcome and encouraged to engage on this site.

The "Seventh generation" principle says that in every decision, be it personal, governmental or corporate, we must consider how it will affect our descendants seven generations into the future. This principle was codified in the Iroquois Indian Great Law of Peace which was a model for the Constitution of the United States.
