Public Invited to Brainstorm 1st and Main Design Ideas
Planning is underway for the area surrounding the future transit station at 1st Avenue and Main Street. Options include housing, parks, retail, even light manufacturing. Connecting this area to the rest of the city with transit, bike/walking paths and new roads is also critical. Longmont residents are invited to contribute their ideas at an informal Community Roundtable from 6 to 8 pm on Wednesday, January 25, at the Longmont Public Library, 409 4th Avenue. For more information or special accommodations, email Phil Greenwald at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 303-651-8335.
Tree Limb Diversion Center Open Year Round
If you missed the Christmas tree recycling deadline, you can always take them to the City's Limb Diversion Center. Tree limbs, branches, bushes, and leaves can be dropped off at the City Tree Limb Diversion Center which is located at 140 Martin Street.
There is no additional charge to residents of Longmont. Just cut the limbs to manageable lengths and unload them at the designated area in the Center (no trash, no bags, no grass clippings/weeds or other debris please). The limbs are ground into a mulch which is great for summer gardening and is available to residents at the Center free of charge – just help yourself! Call 303-651-8416.
