We are an independent group of volunteers living near the Alpine-Balsam site. We put together this website and the related survey with the help of a market researcher and a website designer who volunteered their time. We do not raise funds except to support our immediate activities such as printing flyers. Our e-mail group of concerned neighbors consists of over 100 people plus a leadership team that shares updates, maintains the website, and helps coordinate outreach efforts: Ashley Alsup, Marina Florian, Kathleen Hancock, and Francesca Silva.
Specifically, we advocate:
Placing our unique neighborhoods at the center of development.
Preserving Boulder’s established neighborhood character and commitment to open space and our natural environment.
Requiring the City to develop scenarios only after completing unbiased studies on traffic, parking, flooding, schools, etc.
Regularly updating and getting neighbor feedback about development via postcards and online surveys.
Identifying where survey respondents and workshop participants live, allowing the City to give primacy to resident views.
