, Which City Officials Have Said Will Be Renovated Into A Multi-generational Facility With Senor Citizens’ Programs During The Day And Youth And Family Activities At Night.

The Colorado Department of Local Affairs’ award to the city, originally announced last fall, is part of the $985,760 in grants being given to assist local governments that do not allow retail marijuana sales in their jurisdictions but that have experienced the impacts of the sale, transfer, cultivation or processing of retail marijuana whether that’s being done legally outside those local governments’ boundaries, or illegally inside them. Longmont plans to use part of its $567,640 grant to remodel and furnish the former Fire Station No. 3 at 1200 Lashley St. , which city officials have said will be renovated into a multi-generational facility with senor citizens’ programs during the day and youth and family activities at night. The city’s award from the state also will pay for some of the costs of providing marijuana diversion and intervention programs for Longmont’s youth, as well as for teens from southwest Weld County’s Carbon Valley communities who come to those programs in Longmont. The city also plans to purchase two passenger vans to transport youth attending the programs. Longmont was eligible to apply for and get the state marijuana impact grant because the city bans retail marijuana sales. If the City Council were at some point to allow retail pot businesses to operate inside the city limits, it could not apply for any such future grants from the state. However, it also would not have to give back the $567,640 it got in the initial round of awards. The colorado marijuana council’s action on the state grant came on the same night that it revisited the issue of whether to set limits on how much marijuana Longmont residents can grow in their residences for their legal medical or recreational use home grows that are legal inside the city , even if medical marijuana dispensaries and retail recreational marijuana shops are not.
