Longmont's Newest Street Names

The new color-themed street names for the revived Sienna Park subdivision, behind Sunset Middle School and CDC.  You may remember this area as the agricultural property that SVSD sold during its 2002 financial crisis caused by poor management.  This neigborhood had a previous start last decade but it was abandoned due to the national housing / financial crisis of 2008.  It's back.

Turkey Plant Going Down Fast

As mentioned earlier, the old poultry processing plant in  downtown Longmont was sold and the site will be re-developed into a combination business/residential area.

Panels are coming down fast, and they are working on Sunday over Labor Day weekend.
