The votes are in and according to our community poll, these are the top three looks of Loveland. Does this identify a singular look or is Loveland destined to be the town of many facades?
Since the posting of this community poll, there have been dramatic changes to several buildings downtown - two of the bond furniture buildings have been painted black and the roof of the building that is the home of the music academy is also black. Discussion at the September 4, 2018 planning & zoning meeting addressed the changes with comments that included “ they are trying to create a steel look, which is consistent with the architecture of the 50’s.” Is this now another look being introduced into the downtown?
Each of the “winning” looks above are very distinctive and very different. The city is spending $128K on a master plan, what look will this committee decide best reflects the downtown? What facade will the historic committee determine as the face of Loveland? What will the master plan in conjunction with the historic committee come up with as the downtown look.
Be sure to check out the newest article from lovelandtattler.com - Building the history of Loveland to learn more about the historic committee. Eye On Loveland’s newest podcast, which will drop on Thursday, will continue the discussion about the committee and explain how their actions and decisions will affect our community.
