On Tuesday, Oct. 25, from 5 to 6:30 p.m., the City of Boulder is hosting an open house to provide feedback and become informed about a proposed multi-way boulevard for Pearl Parkway from 30th Street east to the railroad tracks. The event will be held at the city offices in the West Senior Center, 909 Arapahoe Ave.
The city will also host an open house on Wednesday, Oct. 26, about pedestrian, bike and vehicular access between 22nd Street and Crest View Elementary School, as well as flood mitigation improvements at 19th Street and Fourmile Canyon Creek.
The reason for the first open house, city officials say, is that recent redevelopment initiatives in the Boulder Junction area of Pearl and 30th streets have presented an opportunity to: develop improvements along Pearl Parkway that are pedestrian-friendly and multimodal, integrate on-street parking and create a space that is supportive of the future mixed-use development pattern of the adjacent area.

The second open house, hosted by the city’s utilities
division, will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. at Crest View Elementary School, 1897
Public input received at a May 2011 open house led to the development of several alternatives, and city staff will present updated information on those alternatives, concept-level costs and potential impacts and benefits of the options. The purpose of the open house is to help identify preferred alternatives for connections and floodplain improvements.
The open house is part of the Community and Environmental Assessment Process (CEAP), which is used to evaluate the social and environmental impacts of the proposed transportation connections and flood mitigation improvements in the area. After input from the meeting is considered and analyzed, a final city staff recommendation will be presented to the Greenways Advisory Committee in early 2012.
