I spent the morning with four professionals with the City of Fort Collins learning about the city’s 20+ history of engineering with nature at the scale of a city. Wow, the level of commitment by citizens, city leaders, and the talented professionals implementing the city’s projects was a pleasure to behold. The city built and manages 112 miles of walking and hiking trails that wind their way along restored streams, creeks, ponds, wetlands, city parks, and the Cache la Poudre River, all while managing storm water and reducing flooding risks. I’m looking forward to learning a lot more about how they’ve been getting this done and helping to share these great projects with others! And wait until you hear them describe the work in their own words!
