Relocating to Longmont Colorado
Longmont Colorado is home to about 95,000 residents and is technically a suburb of Denver nestled in Boulder County. Longmont is considered a Home Rule Municipality with part of the city in Weld County as well. It's northeast of the county seat of Boulder and 33 miles northwest of Denver. It is the 14th most populated city in the state of Colorado. Named after Long's Peak, a prominent mountain named for explorer Stephen Long that is clearly visible from the city, Longmont was originally founded in 1871 by a group of people from Chicago.
It was originally called the Chicago Colorado Colony and residents sold memberships in the town purchasing the land necessary for the town hall with the proceeds. It was one of the first planned communities in Boulder County and the streets were laid out in a master-planned, grid design within one square mile. The city began to flourish as an agricultural community and after the building of the Colorado Central railroad arrived from Boulder in 1877, more and more residents settled in the area. By the 1940s, Longmont had begun to grow beyond its borders and during the 1960s, the government built the Denver Air Route Traffic Control Center and the IBM manufacturing development campus. More technology grew around the city including companies like Seagate and Amgen but closed its campus in 2015.
During the 1990s, the downtown Main Street area saw a vibrant revitalization with new shops, restaurants, boutiques, and other trendy spots. And in 2013, the City Council voted to finance and build out its own municipal gigabit data fiber-optic network to every house and business over the next three years.
Longmont is home to Boulder County Campus of Front Range Community College. It's part of the St. Vrain Valley school district as well as several private schools. The public school district is the seventh-largest school district in the state of Colorado. There's one preschool, 24 elementary schools, nine middle schools, three K – 8 schools, eight high schools, and six charter schools. It's also home to the Master Instructor Continuing Education Program for education aviators.
