City wants to hear your vision for the
If Boulderites could redesign the heart of central Boulder, what would it look like? If you were given a blank slate to rethink the downtown’s most expansive public area, would you take the challenge? Well, the challenge is real, and the time is now!
The City of Boulder is launching the Boulder Civic Area project, which will actively engage the community to envision the future of the area bordered by 9th to 17th streets and Canyon Boulevard to Arapahoe Avenue. This area is already the heart of the community’s social and civic activity, but what else could it be? And what should it be?
To kickoff the project, the city is hosting a Board Summit and Public Kickoff Reception on Wednesday, July 11 from to at the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art. The open house, scheduled to occur at the core of the study area and on the night of a Boulder County Farmers’ Market, is designed to generate excitement about the project, provide information, and gather initial ideas from the community. You can RSVP to the event on PlanCast.
As we begin to collectively imagine the future of the area, it helps to understand our history and how the current area evolved into what it is today. Watch a short video on the Boulder Civic Area History and check out photos of the Boulder Civic Area on Flickr.
