What is the Downtown Loveland Partnership?

LDP Vision
“Our residents enjoy the convenience of shopping, working and learning in a pedestrian friendly city center. Visitors find restaurants, retail shops, and entertainment easily accessible by public transit or private vehicle. The presence of local residents at all hours of the day or night demonstrates the Downtown’s commitment to friendly service in a clean, safe environment."

LDP Mission
“To create a vibrant Downtown that provides a safe, dynamic environment to gather, live, educate, shop, work and play.”

What is the Downtown Development Authority?

The Downtown Development Authority (DDA) is a statutorily created authority, approved by the voters in February 2015, and authorized by the City of Loveland in April 2015, for the purpose of halting, preventing, and correcting deterioration within the geographic boundaries identified as the District, and to create and implement development plans for the District, utilizing tax increment financing (TIF) for the completion of authorized projects that are part of a comprehensive DDA development plan – the Plan of Development. 

DDA Vision
The vision of the DDA is to establish a downtown that is healthy, viable, and economically sound for the future.   Click here to go to the organizing document.

DDA Mission
The Mission of the Loveland, Colorado DDA is “to strengthen, develop and promote the economic well-being, safety and vitality of the Downtown District.  As a self-governing agency of the City, the DDA facilitates, plans and executes development and capital improvement projects.  We commit to fulfill our mission collaboratively, ethically and professionally, while preserving the unique and historic character of the District.”

What is the Business Alliance?

The Loveland Downtown Partnership and Downtown Loveland Association merged their efforts to form the LDP Business Alliance, a business advocacy and advisory group within the Loveland Downtown Partnership.

The LDP Business Alliance focuses on collaborative marketing and downtown business advocacy. The integration brings together long-term associations with many downtown businesses and legacy knowledge of Loveland's downtown to help create a more seamless experience for existing businesses as well as new businesses seeking to locate and do business in the Downtown District.

Dine Out With Heart

Dine Out With Heart is a community fundraiser sponsored by Loveland Philo.

 

It's goal is to eliminate hunger in our community, with special focus on the most vulnerable, local children and families.

Proceeds from the fundraiser go towards funding local non-profits that address hunger in the Loveland/Berthoud area.

 

Past recipients include: Loveland Community Kitchen, Thompson Education Foundation, Kids Hope, Alternatives to Violence, Veteran's Club and food pantries at local schools and Sunrise Clinic.

 

 

 

“People of Loveland”

Meet Jenny

“Who gets to hang out with awesome election judges, document lovely Lovelanders driving through to drop their ballots off and exercise their voting rights, seeing many new faces and some of my favorite people as well? I do!

I'm the lucky one that gets to document all of the amazing things that people do in this community everyday for the Loveland Reporter-Herald through my lens. I can tell you from experience that Loveland is truly filled with love.

Am I a celebrity? 

You're right about the rest though.

It's truly a gift to be able to embed myself into people's lives. In their best moments or their worst, I'm there. Sometimes they love me for it and sometimes they're not very happy to see me. If they knew me, they would realize I'm shooting with my heart and I feel their joy and their pain. My mission is to make my own little positive difference in people's lives. Whether that's filling readers hearts with joy when they see a joyful photo or causing someone to want to make a difference because they see others doing the same, or evoking empathy and love from a photo of a tragedy- I hope to make a difference, even if just for a moment.

Have you noticed the sculptures in Downtown Loveland seem to change each year? They are part of a TAAP Program through the City of Loveland! 

T.A.A.P.  sculptures are on the move as we make way for three new sculptures in downtown:

1) "Big Vision, Small Steps"
by Charlotte Zink

2) "Convergence"
by Steve Shachtman

3) "Love/Fear"
by Joe Norman

They will be installed next Friday! "Broken Violin" by Jack Kreutzer; "Ovilepod" by Ted Schaal and "Hard Rock" by Pati Stajcar will remain on display for another year.

Thank you to all of our T.A.A.P.  artists -- past and future!

The final broadband plan will be presented to council Oct. 23 and the city is hosting a Town Hall meeting at 6 p.m. Oct. 4 as one final opportunity for people to ask questions about the project. 

 We want to make sure everyone has the opportunity to participate in-person, via phone or view it on Facebook Live. NOTE: Those wishing to participate by telephone can sign up to receive a call on the cityofloveland.org/Broadband website.
