Review of Fort Collins, Colorado

50 shades of white and impoverished
Star Rating - 7/22/2021
My family established our home in Larimer County in 1973; this area, Fort Collins, was a quaint, western-ish town we loved to visit. So I’ve visited FoCo multiple times a year since until 2016 when I relocated here from the east coast.

FoCo is more expensive than the DC beltway, the city’s planning division, under the leadership of a long-time city manager who sold this place out, has catered to developers making the city completely unaffordable for the majority of service sector employees. The majority are in poverty, but on the bright side, if you’re white, and you really only want to live amongst white people, and be poor, this is your place!
