Save the Date: REACHING FOR THE FUTURE 

10th Anniversary of Destination Downtown Loveland
Wednesday, September 19, 2018 | Rialto Theater, Loveland, CO | 5 p.m.

Many of us remember when the visionary Bill Hudnut came to Loveland in 2008 to discuss the importance of vitality in a downtown.  Hudnut inspired the community, and those passionate about revitalizing Loveland ran with this message, which was further refined by Ed McMahon of the Urban Land Institute at the 2013 Destination Downtown Loveland event. 

Today, downtown Loveland is booming.  We invite you to join us, learn about the past, see the present, and participate in Loveland’s future.  Former Pittsburgh mayor, Tom Murphy, who has extensive experience in urban revitalization, is our guest speaker.
