- New website to support local Louisville businesses – The City has launched a new website where you can find out how to support local businesses during COVID-19. LouisvilleCO.gov/SupportLocal includes details of our local businesses, their social media accounts and websites, and special offers like takeout food, curbside pickup, gift cards, or online shopping. Even if you can’t buy something, this is great time to support a social media account or leave a Yelp or Google review for a business you’ve visited in the last year. Every little bit helps.
- New Community Resources website – The City has also launched a new website where you can find local volunteer and charitable giving opportunities.
- Free at home workout classes – If you’ve ever visited the Recreation & Senior Center there’s a good chance you’ve taken a Les Mills class.
