Boulder has a vibrant history of citizen engagement when it comes to growth and development issues. From PLAN-Boulder County’s inception, we’ve been dedicated to helping ensure that the people who live here and care deeply about our community –not corporate interests – decide the fate of our town.
We believe that all voices should be heard during land-use debates, and that environmental protections and quality-of-life should trump corporate profits. We strive to engage the broader community in conversations about the development and land-use decisions that will affect us all. We advocate for solutions to our most pressing problems that will create the greatest good for our local environment and for the people who live in it.
