Neighborhood Livability and Social Health Performance Metrics
Affordable housing units house the City's lowest wage earners and are important to the sustainability of our community. Through policy and funding, the City would like to at least maintain and preferably increase the number of units available to consumers requiring this type of housing. Low income housing in Fort Collins is for people who earn 80% or less Area Median Income.
In partnership with Homeward 2020 and their data dashboard, this metric allows us to compare the number of people entering homelessness (actual result) versus the number of people exiting homelessness (target result) each quarter. Our goal is to make homelessness rare, short-lived and non-recurring.

This indicator measures the amount of time to respond to and abate both reported and unreported graffiti in the City. The goal is to have graffiti properly abated within two business days.
This metric tracks the percentage of voluntary compliance with nuisance code violations issued by the City of Fort Collins. Voluntary compliance is defined as violations corrected by the property owner or tenant.
This monthly metric (averaged by quarter) measures speed compliance to 30 mph zones throughout the city. Speeding through neighborhoods can be a quality of life issue for many. Fort Collins is an outdoor activity centered city, with many of its residents frequently enjoying the outdoors in the neighborhoods. Speeding through neighborhoods, commonly a 30 mph zone, can be of concern, especially if near a school, or an area with many children present. This metric measures the compliance rate to those 30 mph zones, and can assist with identifying areas for education and enforcement efforts.
