AFTER THE FLOOD

While it is heartbreaking that the inevitable flood event has finally occurred, we should be grateful that no one was seriously injured, or even killed - a miracle considering the magnitude of the event. This is a testament to the preparedness of Emergency Services and its Director Dan Eamon.  Good job Dan and crew, and the entire response team!

1st & MAIN - Transit Center

Longmont has begun their community outreach and visioning on the 1st & Main Transit Center.  Located near the St. Vrain River Corridor, the succsess of this effort may largely depend on linkage to this vital greenway.
