The Larimer County Long Term Recovery Group (LTRG) has partnered with Larimer County in hosting an all-day “Roadmap to Recovery” Expo on Saturday August 16th, 2014 from 10-5pm at the new Estes Park Event Center and Pavilion, 1125 Rooftop Way, Estes Park. “This will be an opportunity to bring our community together nearly a year after historic floods ravaged Larimer County,” said Laura Levy Larimer County LTRG Manager. In listing the day’s activities, Levy said the day will offer a lot:
· An opportunity for ‘community’, honoring accomplishments, and thanking first responders
· Presentations & Booths with Up-To-Information: Governor’s Office of Recovery; State Dept. of Local Affairs; Loveland Hosing Authorities; Larimer County’s Road & Bridge repair, floodplain impacts, building permits, and, code requirements; municipal updates from Estes Park and Loveland; and, additional community organizations that can answer questions and provide resources on construction, river restoration, volunteer resources, economic development, small business resources, and, disaster case management services.
“Recovering from an event like the 2013 Flood is a long process and the available resources can be a moving target hard to understand,” said Suzanne Bassinger the Larimer County Recovery Manager, “this is an opportunity to get information, hear updates, and visit with neighbors.”
Breakfast will be served to attendees and the event center concession stands will open in the afternoon. Public non-profit organizations with resources available for flood recovery are invited to attend and must contact Laura Levy, Larimer County Long Term Recovery Group Manager, at 303-931-8080, to register to participate. All organizations must be pre-registered.

The mission of the LTRG-LCF is to address the unmet needs of those without the resources to rebuild or repair their homes after the 2013 floods. #####
