The City of Fort Collins is re-examining the TIP-prepared 2011 Economic Health Strategic Plan to align the plan with the city’s sustainability focus and to update the plan in light of current economic conditions. The city has engaged TIP Strategies to assist in refining the plan and identifying meaningful metrics to measure progress and impact. The project will entail a review of the city’s social and environmental sustainability initiatives to identify ways to marry them with the city’s economic health goals and strategic initiatives. The result will be a plan that is more integrated with the city’s new organizational structure and more reflective of the post-recession economy.
