The downtown development Authority

The Loveland Downtown Development Authority was created in February 2015 under the laws of the State of Colorado. The purpose of the DDA is to halt, prevent, and correct 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 (POD).

DDA’s POD includes such projects as: list of identified projects 

  • The Pulliam Building renovation
  • The Foundry & public parking garage
  • The Heartland block proposed redevelopment
  • Funding for railroad quiet zones
  • Underground electric power
  • Beautification programs (including façade improvements)
  • Pedestrian and circulation improvements

Essentially, the DDA is responsible for the “hardscape” or physical improvements of the downtown. The POD is planned out for 30 years (if revenue stream is available).

For many, understanding the DDA is a complicated,  For more information on the DDA and their roles, how the financing works and more, click HERE

Night on the Town

Friday, Sept 14, 2018 5 pm-9 pm

Night on the Town is Downtown Loveland’s “night out” with many art galleries and businesses offering a ready welcome from 5 pm to 9 pm. There's plenty of fine and casual dining, craft beer tasting rooms and retail shops to enjoy. You’ll find snacks, live music and sales in multiple locations, all part of an inviting atmosphere and hearty welcome from downtown businesses. It’s an opportunity to spend an evening with friends in our downtown.

During our "Summer Version" there are street performers, live musicians, something on every corner. 

 

 

“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!

With over 300 spaces of free public parking, the brand new parking garage at The Foundry is a great addition to Downtown.   While construction is completed on the surrounding areas, the garage can be accessed from Lincoln Ave, and pedestrians can enter and exit to Lincoln Ave. 
When construction is complete, pedestrians will be able to enter and exit the garage from the public plaza of The Foundry, or from Lincoln Ave and 2nd Street.
