boulder extends search for new planning director

David Driskell Boulder city officials announced on Thursday that the search has been extended for a new planning, housing and sustainability director following a city tour, interviews and meet-and-greet receptions with three contenders for the job."Each candidate offered several of the traits that we are seeking in the next Planning Director," City Manager Jane Brautigam said in a news release.

surplus of boulder planning board candidates interview for two key spots

Chalk it up to angst over the future of growth and development in Boulder, or perhaps to renewed interest in civics in the era of President Donald Trump, but citizens are suddenly rushing to join the city Planning Board.On Tuesday night, the City Council interviewed the 14 people vying for two open seats on the board. Sixteen applied originally, but two dropped out ahead of this week's council interviews, which also included more than 100 candidates. Next to the council, the Planning Board is Boulder's most influential citizen body, presiding over development proposals and helping to set land-use and design rules. But the last time there was an opening on the board, only four people applied to fill it.There are now two five-year terms up for grabs, with board Chair John Gerstle and member

new program unveiled to help struggling boulder families cover rent

Boulder and the Emergency Family Assistance Association, in partnership, are launching a pilot program designed to prevent homelessness among families with children.The program, called Keep Families Housed, follows a budget amendment that the City Council made last year in the interest of supporting families experiencing or on the brink of homelessness.In 2017, the city will contribute $263,000 to the program. There is currently no plan in place to extend the funding into 2018 or beyond, though that may be done later this year during the budget drafting process.The money, EFAA says, will go toward families who meet health- and education-based requirements, such as ensuring that their children are enrolled in school and nutritional programs, having health insurance or having completed finan

boulder's path forward in muni effort could be plotted soon

Something related to Boulder's municipalization bid is going on the city's November ballot. That much is all but certain.It could be an extension of the voter-approved Utility Occupation Tax that has funded the Boulder bid to acquire certain Xcel Energy assets and form a municipal electric utility, or it could be a new franchise agreement with Xcel that allows the incumbent to retain its customers in the city.Proceedings at the state Public Utilites Commission in coming months will determine what, exactly, citizens are voting on come November.The intervening parties in the case filed answer testimony to Boulder's application on Feb. 17, and the city will soon have the opportunity to file rebuttal testimony. In order to do that, Boulder may need to ask questions of certain parties about how

cu boulder partners with boulder homeless shelter on assessments

Of the 1,800 homeless people who used the resource center at Boulder's Bridge House in 2016, no fewer than 25 percent self-reported that they are affected by a previous traumatic brain injury, which could leave them with possible cognitive difficulties.Those with cognitive problems might qualify for Social Security disability benefits — but because of those same challenges, they could likely face a lot of difficulty in navigating through the required paperwork.A partnership between the Boulder Shelter for the Homeless and the University of Colorado's Brain Behavior Clinic now provides the ability for members of the homeless community to obtain free cognitive assessments — a critical step in their bid to get the financial help they need.Lasette Brown, regional benefits coordinator at the Bo

boulder jewish community center gets bomb threat overnight, second this year

Boulder's Jewish Community Center received an emailed bomb threat late Tuesday night that was not deemed credible, the second time in less than two months that the facility has been the target of such a threat.Boulder police spokeswoman Shannon Cordingly said the center received an emailed bomb threat just before midnight Tuesday, but that a sweep of the facility at 6007 Oreg Drive determined the threat was not credible.The Jewish Community Center said in an email Wednesday to the community that they were given the all clear to resume programs and operations, and were open by Wednesday morning."We were proud that the JCC was open (Wednesday) morning and that the parents not only brought their children, but we scheduled a casual coffee and get together," said Jonathan Lev, the executive dir
