Denver Studies the value of redeveloping land along the river corridors.

Denver continues to reap the benefits of its visionary efforts to re-imagine and rediscover the SOUTH PLATTE RIVER CORRIDOR. This study explores the nearly $5 BILLION dollar potential impact of this initiative, both past and future.

This link opens a pdf file booklet that "outlines what we believe is a visionary concept: to redefine and transform thousands of acres of under-utilized or distressed commercial, industrial and residential real estate assets (Red Fields) through the creation of public park land (Green Fields) in the Denver metro area."

River Corridor Develpment Drives Pueblo Economy

Pueblo's Arkansas River Corridor has garnered 100's of millions in investment funding, helping to drive the economy of the city.  What Longmont does will be different, perhaps more of a natural river stewardship approach, perhaps with linkage to Twin Peaks or Longmont's downtown, or the Count Fairgrounds.  Whatever route the city takes, what exists now needs to be re-examined.  Read more about Pueblo's approach at the attached article:

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.
