Ramat HaNegev – Boulder’s Next Sister City?

City Council Hearing Set For August 23, 2018

 

The Boulder City Council will hear and possibly approve an application to create a sister city relationship between Boulder and Ramat HaNegev, Israel.  At a special meeting scheduled for Thursday, August 23rd, at 6:00 pm, the Council will consider both the Ramat HaNegev application and also a separate application to create a sister city relationship between Boulder and Kathmandu, Nepal.   These are the first sister city applications to go before City Council since it approved the Nablus sister city application in 2016.

As opposition to this application has already been voiced with City Council, the chair of the Boulder-Ramat HaNegev Sister City Initiative, Tara Winer, is urging people to attend the August 23rd meeting and to e-mail City Council members (email: council@bouldercolorado.gov).

“This is a critical time in the Sister City application approval process.  I hope everyone can take the time to write an email to City Council in the next week and to come to the hearing on August 23rd!!.”

Please email tara.winer@bouldernegev.org for the address.
