Longmont is working on many ways to improve our community's resilience to future flooding (as well as other emergency events), from building infrastructure to putting place emergency communication plans to meeting our neighbors.
Infrastructure and floodplain improvements will take several years to fully implement and will have lasting positive effects on our community. Other efforts, such as improving communication within and between neighborhood groups and enhancing cultural awareness and competency, have more immediate impacts on community resilience.
