About

The Blue Line, Inc. is a non-profit corporation informing Boulder residents about political, controversial and provocative city and community issues. We’re calling it “The Blue Line” in honor of the 1959, citizen-led referendum that prevented development on Boulder’s mountain backdrop.  We aim to engage people who

  • have a reverence and love for Open Space and a desire to protect it
  • recognize the importance of history and historic landmarks
  • value neighborhoods and neighborhood schools
  • have lived here all their lives and who have just arrived
  • recognize the bicycle as a form of recreation AND transportation
  • are users of eco passes and alternative transportation modes
  • value the sense of place and that which defines it
  • have a desire to plan for the seventh generation
  • are environmentally respectful hikers, runners and climbers
  • value community of all ages
  • are responsible dog guardians
  • put the greater good ahead of their own self-interests
  • want to live in a vibrant town not a crowded city
  • recognize diversity as a fundamental component of vibrancy
