Building Downtown Loveland
If you happened to notice, the blog has not been updated in a couple weeks. I, Jason, have been doing a lot on introspective thinking about the direction and purpose of The Armory. I had some great dreams and ideals when I started the journey towards opening the shared space. I wanted to help form a community of independents, freelancers, entrepreneurs, and creatives that collaborate and teach each other. I also wanted to be involved in the revitalization of Downtown Loveland. I think there is great potential in the downtown area and would love to see it as the soul of the city that it should be. Somewhere in opening the space I had lost those ideals and the vision. The pressure of operating the business side had clouded my vision. With the heart and soul searching that I have been doing came the realization I had lost that vision and I want it back. The Armory is not a business; it is designed to be a home. Forming a community that uses the Armory as it base of operations is the goal. I am not concerned with making a huge profit on this venture, but bringing life to the downtown area through helping small businesses and independents grow and thrive.
