I hear that the City is planning to create quiet zones to stop the trains from blasting their horns at all hours of the day and night. Is this true?
have trains pass through the city without sounding their horns, safety
modifications must be made to the BNSF railroad crossings. To establish a quiet
zone in the City of Longmont, a set of very specific safety requirements must
be met for each of the 17 crossings that fully compensate for the absence of
the train horn. This work can be very expensive and the City Council is
currently listening to resident feedback. Learn more at https://www.longmontcolorado.gov/departments/departments-n-z/transportation/traffic/rr-quiet-zones.
I read in the local newspaper that the City plans to close the airport. How long will that take?
What is the population of Longmont as of Jan. 1, 2019? Who says so?

I can’t afford to live in Longmont anymore. Can you help?
Do I need a permit to rent out a room in my house?
The Longmont City Council recently adopted regulations
governing short-term rentals, including requirements for an annual permit and
City inspections to ensure that rentals comply with building occupancy and life
safety requirements and don’t create a nuisance for the surrounding
A short-term rental, such as those through Airbnb, HomeAway, VRBO, FlipKey, etc., is a rental for fewer than 30 days of an entire dwelling or of individual rooms in an owner-occupied dwelling. All short-term rentals in Longmont require a short-term rental permit and a sales and use tax license. Existing short-term rentals are not grandfathered, and unlicensed short-term rentals will be subject to code enforcement. Learn more at bit.ly/LongmontShortTermRentals.
We had another big snow storm hit the City. How come the City won’t plow my street?
designated snow routes are designed to create an efficient network for
accessibility throughout town utilizing arterial and collector roadways.
Arterial roads provide access to destinations across town (east-west or
north-south) or to transportation networks outside of town.
move traffic in/out of neighborhoods and provide access to schools, hospitals,
and other local destinations. Collectors also funnel traffic to arterial
roadways. If you have to travel during or after a storm, plan your trip using
snow routes as much as possible for the best conditions. Learn more about the
City's snow & ice control program at LongmontColorado.gov.snow and

of the Snow Routes.
