PLAN-Boulder County considers being good stewards of our environment as one of our top priorities. Boulder County’s Open Space Program, trail access, land use policies, and environmental activism are the cornerstones of what make our community a desirable place to live. These limited resources need to be maintained and protected as best as possible while still being available for accessible recreation. PBC has long fought for the restriction of building along the Flatirons and keeping height limits in place so that we may all enjoy Boulder’s beautiful views. We believe that while sustainable development can maintain and enhance some aspects of our community, many of our resources can never be undeveloped. This means we must be mindful of steps we take that cannot be undone. Some of PBC’s principles look toward a more sustainable use of our resources that will mitigate climate change and enhance our community’s living conditions:- Development of a municipilzed electrical grid for the City of Boulder
– Full funding of our Open Space programs so that we may keep up with the increased maintenance cost associated with additional Open Space visitors
– Proper land use approval processes that take into account all impacts on the natural environment
– Reduction of waste of all types, including single use plastics, food waste, and excessive water useBoulder County is revered as one of the best places in the world to live, and we see it as our duty to maintain the spaces that have placed Boulder County in such high esteem.
