Community & Neighborhood Information
Any city has a variety of people living next to each other. But it takes effort
to create a community. Through neighborhood groups, community relations programs,
thoughtful planning, and other initiatives, the City of Longmont is committed
to building a real community, not just a city. There are numerous city
parks throughout with bike trails to connect many of them.
So get out and meet the people who live next door if you haven't already.
Take a walk through your neighborhood or on one of Longmont's 7 greenways.
Enjoy the historic buildings and public
art installations along the way. Check out our Municipal Golf Courses. Find out about Longmont's 60 neighborhood
groups and the resources they have to offer. Help make our city an enjoyable
place to live for everyone.

Focus on Longmont is an initiative launched by the Longmont City Council
at their 2004 planning retreat. The purpose is to develop communitysupported
strategic policies that, if implemented, will move the city towards
a sustainable future as it approaches build-out within its planning
boundaries. In this capacity, a “sustainable future” means two things:
achieving a balance between the resources and expenditures needed to
sustain the city’s capacity to provide desired levels of municipal services,
and a healthy, balanced community whose economic, environmental, and
social needs are met. “Resources” means more than dollars and cents; it
refers to our community’s social, environmental, and economic assets.
