Land Values underutilized

Assessors land value mapNote that on the County Assessor's land value map, the river corridor reflects some of the most underutilized property in the city.  If you were to compare this to a City of Denver, or City of Golden river corridor map, you find find the exact opposite. In these cities, being near the river is VALUED, and the land use nearby reflects that!

Glendale, CO actively brands their River Walk project for economic development.

http://glendaleriverwalk.com/

Colorado River Walks:  The City of Glendale, only 1.3 square miles, is actively promoting their "River Walk" project, a 43 acre master planned mixed use development along Cherry Creek.  Their vision is for a very dense mixed-use office/retail/hotel complex to build an economic engine for their city.  Perhaps not right for Longmont, but another perspective on other cities looking to their waterfronts for inspiration.
