Loveland DDA, LDP seek board members

LOVELAND — The Loveland Downtown Development Authority and Loveland Downtown Partnership have begun recruitment to fill vacant board of directors seats.

According to a press statement, the downtown partnership, created as a 501(c)(4) nonprofit, entered into a 10-year service contract with the city of Loveland in 2015 to provide for economic revitalization, development and redevelopment of the physical downtown Loveland. This includes the coordination of activities, projects and programs to enhance and promote the downtown area and its business interests. The LDP is tasked with building a coalition of both public and private resources for development and redevelopment, and for creating favorable marketing of downtown businesses, the statement said. The LDP has two board vacancies with four-year terms that will expire in January 2026. Applicants must be 18 years or older and live within the city.

The DDA was created in February 2015 under state law. 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, using Tax Increment Financing (TIF) for the completion of authorized projects that are part of a comprehensive DDA development plan, the statement said. The DDA has one board vacancy with a four-year term that will expire June 30, 2025. Applicants must be 18 years or older and be a resident, own or lease property, or be an employee or manager of an entity that owns or leases property within the DDA boundaries. 

Interested residents can direct questions to Sean Hawkins, executive director of the LDP and DDA, via email at shawkins@lovelandpartnership.org or by phone at 970-699-2856. The application deadline for both organizations is Feb. 1.
