What makes Boulder such a great place to live is that a long time ago, the city bought up huge tracts of land south and east of the city – as a buffer to keep Boulder separate from Denver. The city is now planning to let the University of Colorado develop the land, and move Boulder one step closer to being just another lousy suburb of Denver. I’m headed out to a meeting later this afternoon to map strategy to save Boulder.
What the City of Boulder should be doing is figuring out how to reduce traffic and pollution. Not increase it.
