When moving a new business into an older building, you have to anticipate construction hurdles will show up. That being said, we simply could not have anticipated the number of transitions this specific building has had over the years to present the number of hurdles than we ran into. This grant from the City of Longmont has allowed us to absorb some of those building maintenance and repair costs that absolutely had to be taken care of,” noted Redline Athletics owner Ryan Cox.
The Advance Longmont Target Industries Grant is designed to support Longmont’s primary and local businesses in their expansion efforts.
