Online survey available to help inform waterway and road resiliency study

Survey can also be taken at open houses this week


Boulder County Transportation is currently working on a Floodplain Management and Transportation System Resiliency Study and Action Plan (RSAP) to learn from our experiences recovering from the 2013 Flood, and to examine what can be done to better prepare the county’s waterways and transportation systems for future natural or economic disasters.

We Need Your Assistance – Survey available, open houses scheduled

To help inform this effort, the project team has created an online survey, which is available on the project website at www.BoCoResiliencyStudy.org. The short survey will help gauge residents’ acceptable levels of risk, awareness of the risks facing them and their property and what they think Boulder County should prioritize for future actions. The survey will be available to the public until midnight on Sunday, Feb. 3, 2019.

In addition to the survey, the county and its consultant will host two open houses for the public to learn more and provide feedback directly to the team. You can also complete the survey at either session:

RSAP Open House in Longmont - TONIGHT
Tuesday, Jan. 22
6 to 8 p.m.
The HUB – 515 Coffman St. – Longmont, CO

RSAP Open House in Boulder
Thursday, Jan. 24
6 to 8 p.m.
West Senior Center – 909 Arapahoe Ave. – Boulder, CO

In addition to the resiliency study and action plan, staff on-hand at the open houses will also provide information on:

  • Boulder County’s Resiliency Simulator
  • The county’s new Room for the River voluntary flood risk program for property owners
  • Modeling of roadway overtopping during flooding model
  • General disaster risk and mitigation questions
