If We Can’t Reach You, We Can’t Alert You

Be Sure Your Address Can Be Found
In an emergency, Police, Fire and Ambulance services can have a hard time finding your property if it isn’t clearly marked. Address numbers are easier to see if they contrast with the background and are a minimum of four inches high. Make sure that your address numbers are in a location to be legible and clearly visible from the street fronting your property.
Registration Software Update
Thank you for your patience as we complete upgrading and fine-tuning the registration and reservation software used by Recreation, Senior Services, the Museum, and the Firing Range. Check out our new look for online activity registration and facility reservations at LongmontColorado.gov/rec.
