Staff from the City of Loveland’s Community and Strategic Planning department, in collaboration with CanDo Loveland staff, submitted a successful application for the Urban Land Institute’s (ULI) Building Healthy Places Initiative. The Initiative is an opportunity for communities of interest to come together and shape the built environment in ways that improve the health of under-served residents. The Initiative includes a one-day workshop where built environment design experts will provide technical assistance in combination with involvement and feedback from community members and decision-makers to spearhead improvements to Loveland’s focus area.


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.


We will announce details for the workshop which will be held mid-Spring of this year as they become available. For more information on the Building Healthy Places Initiative, click here
