Council Gives Preliminary Approval to Agreement with Frederick

The City of Longmont and Town of Frederick have been discussing a coordinated
planning and boundary IGA (Intergovernmental Agreement) over the past few
years. On March 22 the Longmont City Council passed an ordinance on first
reading that creates the IGA and establishes a fixed boundary line between the
two communities along the St. Vrain River and Boulder Creek south of Hwy119. A
buffer corridor a half-mile mile wide along the St Vrain/Boulder Creek boundary
establishes an area that focuses on reduced development and open space planning
to preserve the natural areas near the river and creek boundary. Within this
buffer corridor, Frederick and Longmont will share land use information and
refer to each other applications for annexation or development so that the other
community can provide input. The second and final reading for the ordinance
will be held on April 12.
