The Community Foundation of Northern Colorado hosted a Nov. 13 forum on revitalizing downtown Loveland, presented by the renowned Urban Land Institute and led by former four-term mayor of Indianapolis and former Congressman William H. Hudnut III.
The event, “Destination Downtown Loveland,” was intended to spur efforts for enhancing downtown. It was made possible by a grant from the Foundation’s Loveland Community Fund and leadership of the Foundation’s Loveland Community Fund Committee.
Hudnut is a senior resident fellow at the Urban Land Institute. ULI, founded in 1936, is a nonprofit research and education organization supported by 40,000 members. Other forum participants will include Loveland community leaders; Jane Jenkins, executive director of Boulder Downtown Inc.; and Tim Steinhaus, executive director of Arvada Urban Renewal Authority. Attendees joined the forum participants in discussing the value of creating a dynamic and vibrant downtown Loveland.
The event took place at the Fountains of Loveland (La Quinta Inn).

Loveland Generations is a giving group of the Community Foundation of Northern Colorado. A giving group is composed of community-minded people who pool their charitable dollars in a common fund. Members of this group enhance their understanding of philanthropy and their appreciation for the valuable work of local nonprofit agencies. Members are welcome to make their annual donation, observe its impact, and attend annual celebrations without further involvement. However, sharing time and talents on subcommittees that provide leadership to the giving group can make membership even more rewarding.
Because the Community Foundation of Northern Colorado is a tax-exempt public charity, donations to our giving groups are tax-deductible.
