The City of Boulder is seeking community input on changes to the Boulder Valley Comprehensive Plan, which is the guiding document for development, redevelopment and social and environmental policies for the Boulder Valley.
The comprehensive plan will be a focus topic at the next three Boulder Matters meetings:
- Thursday, Oct. 28, 5 to 7 p.m.
East Boulder Community Center, 5660 Sioux Drive
Comprehensive Plan break-out session: 6:15 p.m.
There will be pumpkin painting available for kids, and all are encouraged to wear costumes!
- Saturday, Nov. 6, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Foothills Elementary School, 1001 Hawthorne Ave.
Comprehensive Plan break-out session: 11:15 a.m.
Pancake Breakfast will be available for $3/person
- Wednesday, Nov. 10, 5 to 7 p.m.
West Senior Center, 909 Arapahoe Ave.
Presentation on Boulder’s Future (in 3D!): 5:30 p.m.
Community members will have the opportunity to weigh in on desired policy, land use map, and planning reserve changes to the comprehensive plan. Participants will have the opportunity to use clicker technology to instantly register their preferences during the presentation, as well as opportunities to provide written and verbal feedback to city and county staff. Input gathered at these meetings will be used to develop recommended changes to the comprehensive plan, which will then go to through a review process with the city’s Planning Board, the county’s Planning Commission, City Council and the County Commissioners in spring 2011. The Boulder Valley Comprehensive Plan goes through a Major Update process like this one every five years.
