The Downtown Strategic Plan is based on creating a strong market for investment in Downtown. A vibrant Downtown will have the secondary benefit of improving the environment for arts and culture.
To achieve the goal, the City is actively working to identify development projects both large and small that can guide the actions over the next 5 to 10 years. Catalyst projects are broadly defined as mixed use development that adds residential density, new office space and assembles smaller parcels for large redevelopment projects. The project should, when complete, enhance the sense of place in Downtown Loveland and significantly impact the economics and climate for investment.

“For the private sector, the greatest risk is the excessive costs of development. Based on the catalyst project scenarios, there is a tangible risk to private developers in Downtown Loveland. Absent a strong public sector partner, it is unlikely that significant development will occur.” Downtown Strategic Plan p. 19
