Description: If you plan on hosting a gathering at your place, whether it is for 5 friends or 50, and want to avoid a costly citation this is the session for you! Party Smart (also known as Party Partners) is a class that is typically offered to those who have already received a noise or nuisance gathering citation and the feedback that we always hear is: I wish I had taken this class BEFORE I hosted my party! Now is your chance to learn (directly from a Fort Collins Police Officer and City staff) about important local codes and ordinances, good neighboring practices, and all of the other responsibilities of being a safe party host. Don’t wait to get a citation, learn how to be a good Fort Collins neighbor so that you can host many responsible gatherings...ticket free!
