Longmont, CO: Downtown

Longmont is a city and home rule municipality in Boulder County, about 30 miles north of Denver, and is part of the urban Front Range Corridor. The population is around 100,000.

Longmont was developed by the Chicago-Colorado Company in 1871, which envisioned an agricultural utopia where colonists would farm the land and share the benefits of their work. The community was a center for sugar beets and peas. By the 1960s, agriculture was replaced by the technology industry, beginning with IBM arriving in 1965. Longmont also functions as a gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park.

In the 1980s, Longmont began investing in Downtown. Today, Downtown is a healthy neighborhood with many restaurants, coffee shops, brewpubs, and boutique stores.
