THANK YOU VOLUNTEERS!
The LDDA held its annual Downtown Longmont Clean & Green event on Saturday, April 18th as part of the city-wide Clean Up Green Up campaign which runs the entire month of April.
Over 130 people from the community helped on a cold/cloudy/drizzly day to clean up Downtown. We made an impact with a variety of deep-cleaning and landscaping projects that went beyond the regular maintenance performed Downtown. Breakfast, lunch, and t-shirts were provided for our energetic group which encompassed people of all ages!

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.
