The LDDA encompasses 242 acres, spanning 1st Avenue to Longs Peak and Martin Street to Terry Street. Since 1982, more than $45 million in public and private funds has been invested in new and renovated buildings in the Longmont Downtown District.
Additionally, the LDDA manages the General Improvement District (GID) on behalf of the Longmont City Council. The GID is a special tax district. The Downtown Longmont GID was originally formed in 1966 to finance Downtown projects such as parking, beautification and landscaping, creation of mid-block pedestrian walkways and acquisition of necessary land and improvements in connection with these projects.
The LDDA has a mission to develop and sustain a thriving and vibrant downtown district. Through strategic development and programs, the LDDA makes downtown appealing to businesses, residents and visitors.
