We support a community-centered
development for Alpine-Balsam Area Plan
City’s High-Density Plan of ~330 housing units
As of August 2019, the City’s proposed density is for up to 260 housing units for the former hospital site + 380 for the surrounding area. This would be a total of 640 new housing units, which are currently assumed to be 1,000 sq. ft. each, which is about 2 bedrooms.
City’s Area Planning Context
The Alpine-Balsam-Broadway (ABB) project centers around the former Boulder Community Hospital site (called Alpine-Balsam), now owned by the City. The area plan extends to include North Boulder Park, the Ideal Broadway Shops and Community Plaza, and further along 9th Street and across Broadway. Our neighbor-focused group wants to make sure those most affected by the development are aware of plans to re-zone the area, add density, and extend building heights. Everyone should have a voice in developments that affect them.
