UPDATES - Comprehensive Creek Planning Initiative Meetings Scheduled

Monday, December 09, 2013

Boulder County, Colo. – As a part of flood recovery, Boulder County is launching a comprehensive planning effort to address the post-flood condition of creeks in the county. The Boulder County Comprehensive Creek Planning Initiative will engage residents in unincorporated Boulder County who live in areas directly impacted by changes in the creek alignment or channel geometry caused by the flood.

In December, the county is hosting a series of community meetings to share information about the planning initiative and how it relates to public infrastructure reconstruction, residential rebuilding, private access, and revised floodplain mapping of unincorporated areas of the county. Residents of unincorporated Boulder County are encouraged to share their needs and concerns about creek impacts and learn about this planning effort.

A session has been scheduled for each of seven neighboring areas adjacent to creeks across the county that may share similar concerns and interests, however, residents may attend the meeting that works best with their schedule. All meetings are scheduled for 6-8 p.m. and residents should register for the meeting they plan to attend.
