Natural Areas Sites Report
In 2008, City Council approved the report, "City of Loveland Natural Areas Sites." The inventory report identifies environmentally sensitive areas throughout Loveland and is used to assess these areas for potential conservation as well as to evaluate proposed development projects.
The original report, “In the Nature of Things: Loveland’s Natural Areas” (1996) was used for many years. In 2007, the City updated the report to include the evaluation of 15 additional areas in and around Loveland. The resulting 2008 inventory includes 153 environmentally sensitive areas with values such as wildlife habitat, plant diversity and wetlands. The report contains detailed ratings and a description of each site.
