Community Meetings for the St. Vrain Creek Master Plan

Boulder County, as part of the St. Vrain Creek Coalition, has launched a flood-recovery master planning process for the St. Vrain Creek. There will be two initial community meetings on Monday, June 16 and Thursday, June 19. We invite you to attend one of the community meetings to find out more about this effort and provide your suggestions and ideas for flood recovery for the St. Vrain Creek.

The master plan will help determine:

  • What happens after spring run-off?
  • What is the next step for creek recovery?
  • What will the final creek alignment be?
  • How will agencies, landowners, and the public work together?

Collaboration and community participation will be key to the success of the master plan. Please join us!

Spring Runoff & Community Preparedness Meetings

In an effort to inform residents about the risks associated with the upcoming post-flood spring runoff, Boulder County hosted Spring Runoff & Community Preparedness Meetings.

These meetings included information about potential spring runoff and summer flooding hazards, emergency preparedness measures, and updates about recovery projects such as the Comprehensive Creek Planning Initiative, FEMA buyout program, CDBG-DR funding, flood insurance, and housing assistance. Additionally the County presented an assessment of hazardous conditions and possible mitigation strategies such as debris removal, creek bank stabilization and channel restoration. The Long-Term Flood Recovery Group of Boulder County also provided information about resources to meet individual unmet needs.

Meetings featured a presentation with information about county recovery efforts. Staff information tables were set up in order to help answer specific questions or connect residents to the right team for a follow-up discussion. Resource guides, preparedness guides and literature for other recovery, rebuilding or preparedness programs were provided.

Videos of the meeting held in Longmont on March 10th, 2014 are posted on the Videos page.
