Mark your calendars: Proposed Fort Collins Urban Agriculture land use changes will be the subject of an Open House Thursday, Jan. 31, 4:30 – 6:30 p.m. in Community Room One at the Old Town (Main) Library. Information: Lindsay Ex, Senior Environmental Planner, City of Fort Collins, lex@fcgov.com, (970) 224-6143
