Whether it's the Loveland Downtown Partnership, the Downtown Development Authority, a new business going in downtown, a renovation or façade improvement, we want you to know what's happening in our Downtown District.

As part of the City's Capital Improvement Budget and plans for 2018, the planter beds along 4th street are getting a bit of a makeover!  These particular beds (28, as outlined in this  document) have had a rough time of it over the past few years, as the watering system (originally installed over a decade ago) has become mostly inoperable.
The DDA and the City are actively working towards a total renewal/redesign of these beds through the future HIP Streets program (the full re-vamp of the infrastructure, streets, sidewalks, etc), these systems will not be replaced before that program begins. Still, maintaining these beds to the standards of your and the other businesses they front is of great concern.   Starting this week many beds will be torn out, re-leveled, planted with drought tolerant grasses, and re-mulched.    For more info visit our project page HERE

Loveland, CO --- “Teaching Bygone Era Basics to the Next Generation of Urban Domestic Rebels”. The Savvy Sparkplug is here to teach basic life skills classes in Northern Colorado in a fun and funky way to kids and young adults. "Bygone Era Basics" means exactly that: basic manners and skills that your mom and grandma taught you, that your dad and grandpa showed you how to do. In a brick and mortar classroom set up to look and feel like home, we take kids for a few hours, go back in time to when having these life skills was commonplace. We’ll introduce the skills that lead to a positive and self-reliant focus.

 Colorado Department of Education licensed teacher Hayley Corio leads the classes as a fearless enthusiast of aprons, old cars and moxie. A mix of rebel and mom, teacher and friend, and she’s here to bring out the renegade independent spirit in kids; putting a spin on mundane tasks and chores to demonstrate that they are capable and can totally do this stuff. Children having self-confidence in taking care of themselves and their space BEFORE they leave home is HUGE and it starts at The Savvy Sparkplug. By teaching a customized curriculum in a non-classroom setting, we think that kids will absorb and retain these skills and have a great time doing it.

 Young adults can also benefit from The Savvy Sparkplug’s “I Got This” series of classes focused more on tasks and skills that they’ll need to have to survive in the workplace and world on their own. Classes like “I Got This: Ironing. For Real.”, “I Got This: I Live Here”, and “I Got This: Correspondence Stuff” reviews life skills that may have been forgotten or that they never learned in a one hour evening class that includes an adult beverage.

 The Savvy Sparkplug is proudly located right in the heart of the action Downtown Loveland at 411 N. Lincoln in the Stroh Building and is hosting a launch party during the Night Out event on Friday, January 12th from 5-9pm. Classes vary in price, age and content and can be found online at www.TheSavvySparkplug.com.

August 26, 2016

The City of Loveland Water & Power Department started downtown manhole rehabilitation projects this week. The projects generally involve installing a cementitious coating on the inside walls of the old brick manholes. There will be small truck and trailers located in the alleys and streets for short periods of time over the next 3 weeks. Each manhole takes about 2 hours to complete so the impact to traffic and pedestrians will be minimal.

Please contact call Roger Berg, P.E. at 970-962-3711 or Craig Weinland 970-962-3750 if you have questions.

“People of Loveland” - Animal Edition.
Meet Bob.
Age: 8
Breed: Pound Puppy / Dork
Occupation: Cosmic Dog Greeter

“We have a deal. He makes me laugh, and I feed him,” said Cosmic Dogowner Jessie. 
I adopted Bob from the Weld County Humane Society after I saw him on Petfinder.com
He was found wearing a collar, and his name was Kingston. When the humane society called the owners, they said “keep him.”
He was approximately 18 months old... and I could totally see why the previous owners told the humane society to keep him! After I adopted him, Bob would always run away between the railroad tracks and the canal by where I live. Luckily, the homeless people in downtown Loveland knew Bob, and would always bring him back home.
Bob is the greeter at my store, and my taste tester for the treats. 
Cosmic Dog has been open for almost 6 years, and Bob has been here the whole time.
Bob is a customer favorite, and I’m chopped liver. People always remembers Bob’s name before mine. (Laughing)
After school when the Bill Reed Middle School kids walk home, Bob always has his head out the door and all you hear is “Hi Bob!” “Hey Bob!” “Bob!”


“People of Loveland”

 Meet Mayor Jacki.

“I’m mailing my packages out at the post office, and then I’m walking down to City Hall where I pick up my mail and newspapers. I’m out to get my vitamin D quota for the day. 
Loveland is gorgeous today! 
I’m really looking forward to Memorial Day weekend!”
