Longmont Main Street Corridor Plan

This project looks at the Main Street Corridor.

In 2018, the Longmont City Council established their vision for Longmont's places, which is "In 20 years, Longmont will have a developed Main Street from Pike Road to Highway 66 and a river corridor that stretches from the sugar mill to the fairgrounds providing a vibrant economic, residential, cultural and entertainment epicenter that is sustainable and respects the natural environment."

This place based vision is closely tied with and supported by Envision Longmont and numerous other plans that recognize the Main Street Corridor as the “heart” of the community. The City recognizes that there is an opportunity to look at and think about the future of the Main Street corridor, and to identify and discuss potential changes along the corridor that will leverage our local economy and the quality of our community for decades to come.

Beginning last year, the City of Longmont set out to develop a plan, high-level goals, and vision for fortifying and improving the Main Street Corridor to reinforce it as the City's cultural, commercial and business center. The 5-mile long corridor extends from Highway 66 on the north to Plateau Road on the south. The Main Street Corridor plan will address the need to carry multiple transportation modes safely and efficiently on Main Street, while revitalizing the area, and creating opportunities for mixed-land use projects over time.

The 12-month Main Street Corridor Planning effort is coming to a close! Thank you to everyone who attended the public meeting Tuesday, September 10th. The presentation from the project team and draft executive summary are both available online:

Any additional comments are due by 9/23/19 to the project team by emailing the project team at mainstreetplan@longmontcolorado.gov.
