New Resource Will Help You Stay Up to Date on Flood Recovery

Longmont has begun the long road to recovery from the historic September floods, and the City is developing new tools to keep residents informed as strides are made. You can now track the progress of flood-related repair and reconstruction projects with an informative online map located at By zooming in, visitors can select specific locations and view documents, photos, project costs, start and end dates, and – coming soon! – videos. The map will be updated as projects proceed over the next several years and is a great way to follow the City’s recovery. The November issue of City Line highlighted planned 2014 utility rate increases. Two of those rate increases – the $5.28 storm drainage user fee increase and $2 (of the $3) parks and greenway maintenance fee increase – will be applied to flood recovery and leveraged to gain additional funds from state and federal sources.
