528 Main St., Longmont

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

We make an impact with a variety of deep-cleaning and landscaping projects that go beyond the regular maintenance  performed Downtown. Breakfast and t-shirts are provided for all volunteers! We ask that volunteers be able to handle physical activity including bending, lifting, twisting, etc. Sponsorship opportunities also exist. View here

How to Register

Please sign up using our online volunteer application.

If you have any questions, please call Del Rae Heiser at 303-651-8586 or email. We look forward to working with you!

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.
