2010 is going to be a big year for the city of Fort Collins. This January, the City Council work session worked to implement new Green building standards. The Fort Collins Board of Realtors happens to be the driving force behind it all. The FCBR should be recognized for being among the first in the country and the only Realtor association in the State of Colorado, to have a sustainability committee. Yes, you read it right, a new sustainability committee.
Fort Collins as a community, seems to be consistently assessing the best ways to guarantee a sustainable future, and this happens to be one of the best ideas thus far. FCBR’s sustainability committee focuses on several ways to enhance our community’s efforts to reduce energy usage and provide Green resources that will educate the public.
The committee already has quite a few projects underway, including formulating criteria for new FCBR awards. In doing so, the FCBR hopes to launch criteria for Green Office of the year and Green Realtor of the year awards.
They also hope to leverage a few partnerships to have access for improvements so they can provide the community with new Green tools that will be helpful while assisting buyers and sellers.
There’s no doubt that Fort Collins is a community that prides itself on thinking in a sustainable way. This just goes to show that people and companies in this town are taking these ideas seriously. Thanks Fort Collins Board of Realtors for not only talking the talk but also walking the walk.
Sound of interest to you? You can volunteer your time and ideas and be a part of this new, exciting committee! They are looking for volunteers to help!

At Exodus what matters most to us YOU! When we say YOU we really do mean you. You don’t have to be someone needing assistance in moving or help acquiring a storage unity, you are important to us because we are all a part of the same community.
We value our community in Northern Colorado more than a lot of moving companies you will find. Here at Exodus, we make the public our top priority in doing business.

Wherever you are, whatever you do, you can help someone or something in such a small way that makes such a big difference!
Let’s put it this way, you scratch our back and we’ll scratch yours. Let’s work hand in hand this Holiday Season and even ring in the year 2010 by supporting local businesses, organization, charities.
“We can begin by doing small things at the local level, like planting community gardens or looking out for neighbors. That is how change takes place in living systems, not from above but from within, from many local actions occurring simultaneously”
– Grace Lee Boggs
“They” say it takes around a year to a year and a half to meet people in a new community that you can truly call a friend. Depending on where you move, it can take longer than that. Here are some tips to make it easier, and quicker!
Chamber of Commerce: Never rule out the chamber, even if you aren’t a business owner. Your local chamber can connect you to businesses you need, events to attend, and new people to meet that can make you feel at home. Check out Chambers of Commerce, USA Directory and Visitor Bureaus US Directory.
Another great way to meet people and get familiar with your new community is through Livability.com “Livability.com is an online portal connecting people seeking relocation information with some of the most livable communities in the United States.” This website is made for people relocating. They also include local food and a digital newsstand. What a wonderful resource for people moving!
Last but not least, don’t forget about using social media! Twitter and Facebook have features where you can search by city and state. Use Facebook search bar, and for Twitter use Twellowhood.com
Here at Exodus, we hope you make new friends quickly, and start feeling more and more at home!
