The SAINT VRAIN RIVER - a THREAT or UNTAPPED ASSET to LONGMONT?

The SAINT VRAIN - an overhanging threat and liability  .... or and tremendous untapped resource and asset to Longmont?

WELCOME to CAMPAIGN SAINT VRAIN.com.  That question is what this site attempts to address. The floodplain of the St. Vrain River widens to over 20 times its historic, natural width in places, due to man-made developments.  This 2,000% increase in floodplain width then flows through an area largely zoned commercial-industrial, threatening water quality, life safety, and the very economy of Longmont.

Pardon our "dust" - Site under Construction!

Thanks for visiting our new site about the SAINT VRAIN CORRIDOR.  We have launched this website as a volunteer effort, so please forgive if you encounter some bugs as we work out the function and layout of the site.  Your suggestions are appreciated.

Tennessee Riverpark Master Plan

History The most comprehensive and inclusive planning process ever undertaken in Chattanooga and Hamilton County was accomplished between 1982 and 2005.......... ....Following hundreds of public and private meetings involving thousands of citizens, the Tennessee Riverpark Master Plan was completed in March 1985 and later presented to an overflow crowd at the then new Chattanooga-Hamilton County Convention and Trade Center. The visionary plan advised that the Chattanooga riverfront was owned by everyone and should be developed "under a guiding idea which will bring its banks to life, make it a central point of pride for the City's people, and move it to the forefront of national consciousness".
