This is a general summary of topics discussed at the meeting and not verbatim or official, recorded minutes.

Commissioner Donnelly was joined by his fellow commissioners in welcoming citizens to the newly-opened Larimer County facility in Loveland. He explained that the previous building, constructed in the 1960’s and formerly the Loveland library, had become outdated and unable to efficiently serve the growing community and demand. Now, south county residents have a new and improved facility at First & Denver, providing convenient access (and plenty of parking spaces) for the following services:

  • Clerk & Recorder
  • Health & Environment
  • Human Services
  • Economic & Workforce Development Center
  • Sheriff’s Office (satellite location)

Donnelly was also accompanied by Larimer County Facilities Director Ken Cooper to give a tour and explain the construction and funding of this modern building. Much of the region’s history was incorporated, from the re-purposed stone from the former 1950’s county building to the historic photographs featured throughout. Also featured are bronze sculptures by Loveland artist Jane Dedecker and an original painting by Joyce Kilmer.

Cooper’s presentation included a slideshow of the early architectural renderings of the building that broke ground the first week of July 2017. Originally planned as a $20 million-dollar facility, it was completed under budget at $18.3 and ahead of schedule, thanks in part to the lack of snow days over the winter.

Cooper is now working with commissioners to identify future needs in the new Facilities Master Plan, part of the Comprehensive Plan that is in the process of being updated. The projects being given priority in the next five years are the Jail and Justice Center as well as the aging County Fleet Shop.

In November, the County Manager and Budget Director will visit the Commissioners’ Citizen Meetings to go into further detail on how funding will be allocated next year.
