Updated Downtown Master Plan Adopted

After eight months of work, the Longmont Downtown Development Authority has an updated Master Plan of Development. Longmont City Council adopted the updated plan on April 11, 2017.  The LDDA Board adopted the plan at the March 24, 2017 meeting and the Planning and Zoning Commission recommended adoption of the plan at its March 15, 2017 meeting. All were adopted with unanimous votes. 

Why: This is a critical time in the redevelopment of downtown, with interest from new investors and businesses. The former Master Plan of Development was completed in 1995.  Although much of it remains relevant, this is a critical time for an update for several reasons:

  • Reflect advances and changes in Downtown in the last 20 years!
  • Align the plan with Envision Longmont, the newly adopted City of Longmont Comprehensive Plan and other relevant City plans
  • Integrate the Longmont Arts & Entertainment District Plan
  • Create a strong policy foundation for year-on-year resource allocations by LDDA & the City
