The session is open to the public as observers and we are asking Longmont residents to attend if their schedule allows so that the process is as transparent as possible.

At your tables, consider what you have heard today, and discuss what is possible for the future. Write a brief narrative statement on the assigned graphic corridor.
What are the greatest possibilities as we continue river restoration and envision future development along the river corridor?
How do we preserve the natural beauty and important environmental qualities of the river?
How do we attract a stronger presence of higher education in Longmont along the river corridor?
What opportunities do we not want to miss given the Opportunity Zone in which part of this corridor sits?
11:00 Share narrative of ideas and next steps
Meeting #3 – Action planning – what is it going to take from Longmont to realize it? What does the
Council need to do to open the gates? What would it take for you to commit to making this happen?
