Longmont is seeking designation as a Certified Creative District

Downtown Longmont is seeking to join some fairly exclusive company.

The Longmont Downtown Development Authority has asked for — and received — permission to apply for the designation of Certified Creative District from the state's Office of Economic Development and International Trade.
