Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

In late 2021, the City of Longmont kicked off a sub area planning process to develop a more detailed vision and development strategy for the Sugar Mill and STEAM areas. This area of Longmont, generally located from the East Ken Pratt Boulevard and East 3rd Avenue intersection on the east and Main Street on the west, from 3rd Avenue to Boston Avenue and the railroad tracks, has long been an area of interest for the community. Previous planning efforts for the area include the Building STEAM Engage Longmont project and the Urban Land Institute Technical Advisory Panel Report.

The City is excited to continue talking with the community about this area of Longmont. The City has partnered with a consulting team lead by Stantec to create a detailed plan centered on equity, sustainability, and resilience, and focused on the following areas:

  • Land use (mix of housing, commercial, community and other uses)

  • Urban design (architecture and character)

  • Transportation (including bike and pedestrian connections)

  • Storm drainage & sustainable infrastructure

The project planning process is expected to run through spring 2022.

  • The goals for the Sugar Mill + STEAM sub area plan presented in this survey have been generated by the project team after reviewing different studies and materials developed for the area. In particular, the 2020 Urban Land Institute (ULI) Technical Advisory Panel (TAP) report for the historic Sugar Mill and surrounding areas, and the 2019 visioning activities for the STEAM areas

    In this survey, you are invited to familiarize yourself with the 5 project goals for housing, transportation, development, community, and sustainability, and to provide your feedback on how these goals can be best met in the sub area plan. 

    Thanks in advance for your feedback.
