You’re Invited to the “Building Healthy Places” Open House in Loveland 


You’re invited to attend a public open house to learn about the outcomes of a day-long workshop where built environment design experts will provide technical assistance to community stakeholders and city decision makers to spearhead improvements to Orchards North.  


The focus area, called Orchards North, includes the US Highway 287 corridor from 37th Street to 29th Street. While there is a strong mix of goods and services needed to support healthy lifestyles along this corridor, there is not adequate bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure to support safe mobility. In addition, there is an under-served, under-represented population within and adjacent to Orchards North whose access and mobility needs go unnoticed and whose voice is not often heard.


Open House Details:


Date: April 2, 2015
Orchard Place Clubhouse (197 Elder Drive, Loveland, CO)
Open House starting at 5:00pm
