The LDDA held its annual Downtown Longmont Clean & Green event in support of the city-wide Clean Up Green Up campaign which runs every April.

  • We made an impact with a variety of deep-cleaning and landscaping projects that went beyond the regular maintenance performed Downtown.
  • A hearty pancake, eggs, and bacon breakfast was cooked up by Wyatt's Wet Goods to get volunteers started for the day!
  • Volunteers received a Clean & Green t-shirt.
  • A raffle was held for a chance to win a new gardening wheel barrow, compliments of Ace Hardware.
    • Congratulations John Hancock for being the lucky winner!

History of Clean and Green

The LDDA along with support from the City of Longmont Public Works and Natural Resources Department select downtown areas for clean-up including breezeways, alleys, around buildings, and other structures downtown. Additionally, the LDDA reviews a Creative District Report provided by Arts Longmont. The report was generated by the Placemaking Committee and included a “wish list” of areas around downtown that could use extra care to look vibrant and beautiful again.
