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.

Editorial: Downtown investment is needed

Loveland Reporter-Herald Editorial: Downtown investment is needed

Posted:   10/04/2016 09:58:38 PM MDT

The last time voters in downtown Loveland were asked to create a taxing district, various businesses, buildings and other structures stood in the area between Lincoln and Cleveland avenues, and between First and Third streets.

Now, that area is a blank slate, awaiting development.

The city has been in ongoing negotiations with developer Brinkman Partners about the next step in the process. So far, Brinkman has signaled it has an agreement with a multi-screen theater company for downtown and interest from a four-story hotel that might have as many as 110 rooms.

What are taxpayers being asked to do?

Ballot Issue 5D would increase the property taxes in downtown by as much as 5 mills to pay for the public improvements in the Downtown Development Authority. Those include sidewalks, street cleaning, litter pickup and landscape maintenance — items that are paid for from the general fund in other neighborhoods in Loveland.

Ballot Issue 5E would allow the Downtown Development Authority to borrow as much as $75 million to finance improvements, the biggest of which would be a parking garage to hold all of the vehicles that will be drawn to the neighborhood.

An unstated disappointment from the development direction has been the loss of a Larimer County building component to the neighborhood — over the issue of parking. However, if the proposed hotel is in a site where the county building would have been, that does ensure the ground will be taxable instead of exempt.

The overall question is whether the residents and property owners in downtown should shoulder an additional burden. If the proposals are successful, it will inject vitality into the city's core and lift the values of the commercial and residential properties there.

However, if both are approved, city and downtown officials should keep a keen eye to make sure residents who may be 10 or 12 blocks away are also reaping the benefits. If they are not, then at some point they should be allowed to take action to leave the district.

Both issues, 5D and 5E, are recommended for approval.
