The Issue

Boulder County has been working with unincorporated subdivision residents since 2009 to work out a solution to address deteriorating subdivision roads.

A countywide Public Improvement District ballot issue was defeated in 2013. The county then formed a Subdivision Paving Local Improvement District to address the reconstruction of nearly 150 miles of paved roads in 118 unincorporated subdivisions. In July, 2014, a Boulder District Court judge invalidated the LID and ordered that all property assessments be refunded to property owners within the District. 

Plaintiffs representing a set of unincorporated subdivision residents then sued the county again in 2014, seeking to divert funding from other county programs to repave unincorporated Boulder County subdivision roads. In April 2015, a senior District Court judge dismissed that lawsuit. (View County Commissioners' response)
