It’s Official: Ramat HaNegev, Israel Is Boulder’s New Sister City

Despite vocal opposition expressed at their meeting tonight, the Boulder City Council voted unanimously to approve Ramat HaNegev, Israel as the ninth Sister City to Boulder.  The Council also approved an application for Kathmandu, Nepal to join the ranks of Boulder’s Sister City program.
