BVCP Event #2 – Shaping Sustainability Workshop


Saturday, Feb. 27

9 to 11:30 a.m.

West Senior Center

909 Arapahoe Avenue

Event Purpose:

Provide background information on the city’s community sustainability goals and the role that physical planning plays in becoming a more sustainable community.

Understand the city’s vision under the current comprehensive plan and obtain input on whether changes are desired; and if so, how.

Consider what this suggests for potential areas of focus for the 2010 BVCP Update.

Objectives/Desired Outcomes:

Learn about the city’s current vision and areas of potential change under current policy and current trends.

Learn about community sustainability and its relationship to the City of Boulder.

Discuss areas of agreement or disagreement, be collaborative

Have fun, with an emphasis on “hands-on” participation

Confront trade-offs

Ensure that the results are ground in “real” options that could actually address what is suggested as part of the BVCP Update or Sustainable Streets and Centers project

Ensure that participants feel their input is valued and will be considered while moving forward

Bring the family! A break-out session designed especially for young people has been developed with Growing Up Boulder to encourage their input and involvement.
