June 14 Virtual Public Meeting on Boulder County Transportation Funding

On Tuesday, June 14 from 5:30 to 7 p.m., Boulder County Community Planning & Permitting and Public Works departments are hosting a virtual (online) open house meeting on transportation funding for Boulder County. The open house will focus on the future of the county’s transportation sales tax which expires in June 2024, and options will be presented for future funding of multimodal transportation system needs throughout Boulder County.

As the Board of County Commissioners is considering a potential ballot initiative for transportation funding in 2022, public input on top transportation needs and priorities are welcome and encouraged. At the meeting, participants will have an opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback on the county’s transportation funding and options for the future.
