Topless Ordinance is a No Go in Fo Co
This week, the Fort Collins City Council unanimously shot down a proposed ordinance that would allow women to legally be topless in public.
The proposal was presented by Brittiany Hoagland, a citizen who believes the law discriminates against women. Hoagland and a handful of supporters spoke in favor of the ordinance at a city council meeting this week. Several residents opposed to changing the public nudity ordinance also addressed their concerns.
The city council considered two options, one which would make an exception to the law for breastfeeding mothers and another that would allow both men and women to be topless in public.
Citing a recent online poll where over 60% of the nearly 9,000 respondents were opposed to any changes, the council voted to keep the existing nudity laws in tact.
