01.29.2018 | Boulder Anew: Imagine This!

Like it or not, the only constant is constant change. That even (especially) applies to Boulder. The only question is whether you embrace it. You ignore it at your peril. 

Come along for the ride as we share and discuss the Boulder vision. The ink is not even dry on probably the most exciting major city project since, well, since the Pearl Street Mall decades ago. You've undoubtedly heard broad references to the Civic Area redevelopment, bordered West/East by 9th and 17th and North/South by Canyon and Arapahoe. Well, the gem of that project is now taking shape in what's called the Boulder Center and Nature Art Science Port, also known as the West Bookend Concept Plan. Yes, that's West as in its proximity to our own Highland City Club.

The implications to the city, to our local community and to the club are huge. Think in terms of a major multi-use concert, conference and educational venue located literally across the street. Imagine  the west end becoming the hub of Boulder's vibrant scientific community as it taps into the network of thirty-four National Laboratories and associated universities along the Front Range. All this would come about through the merger and collaboration of the two major advocacy organizations dedicated to our revitalized central park.
