You can also send an email to the planning board members through this link.

Write a Letter to the Daily Camera Editor

Another great way to raise awareness about what’s at stake for our community is by submitting a letter to the editor or sharing a guest opinion with the Daily Camera. Use the following key points in your outreach:

  • Concern regarding the proposed building — with no setback from the street — encroaching on the last downtown parcel with Flatirons views.
  • The building’s massive size is out of character for the neighborhood and insensitive to neighboring businesses and residences.
  • The potential for significant traffic/parking problems and lack of adequate emergency access.
  • This parcel — originally designated for civic use — should be preserved, allowing for more community dialogue to shape a project that protects stunning views and Boulder’s character.
  • Downtown Boulder is for everyone to enjoy!
