Thanks for your patience with this website - a work in progress.

Thanks for visiting the Campaign St. Vrain website.  Please note that this website is a work in progress, constructed by a "non-geek".  It still contains a number of blank pages and content areas that need to be filled out.  The "JOIN" function is temporarily disabled.  Our apologies, and we would welcome the assistance of tech volunteers to help develop the site.  We hope that despite these limitations, you still find valuable content on the site, while we continue to develop.

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!

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!

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.

URGENT NEWS WARNINGS OF ST. VRAIN RIVER FLOODING – NO BIG DEAL OR A GENUINE THREAT?

One often hears of a river as the “lifeblood” of a city.  In the case of the St. Vrain in Longmont, this holds as true as anywhere, and the analogy is befitting.  Think of the river as a major “artery” in the “body” of the city.  Just as most of us seldom think about our arteries, and many people behave in a manner that can clog up and choke-off their arteries, causing a heart attack, so too has Longmont too-long neglected its river. 

Longmont To Launch Community Outreach Campaign

In February, the Longmont City Council voted to direct city Planning staff to commence a community outreach campaign regarding the St. Vrain River corridor re-envisioning process.  The planning department has indicated that this will begin in June.  If interested in participating, check in with our site regularly for updates.
