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.
