Downtown Development Authority (DDA) and Loveland Downtown Partnership (LDP) announced today the recruitment process to fill Board of Director seats to help guide the revitalization of downtown Loveland.

The Loveland Downtown Partnership (LDP), 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 LDP has three board vacancies: one seat filling a resigning board member’s term that expires in January 2021, and the second and third seats to be new terms of four years that will expire in January 2024. Applicants must be 18 years or older and live within the City of Loveland. The LDP board meets on the third Monday of each month at 8:00 a.m.

The Downtown Development Authority (DDA) 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. At their September 3, 2019 meeting, the Loveland City Council approved adding two new seats to the DDA board, bringing the new total to nine. The DDA now has two board vacancies: one seat being a term of two years and the other being a term of four years. 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 with the DDA boundaries. The DDA board meets on the second Monday of each month at 4:00 p.m.
