Live, Work, Play (and Vote)


Hey Boulder Blue-Liners! I’ve watched with delight as North Boulder has evolved. NoBo in many ways epitomizes the city’s planning efforts to build sustainable and livable neighborhoods. In a decade, this new neighborhood has become a good place to live and work, eat out and and hang out with friends. Who knew it would become our bicycling Mecca and the spot to be as an artist or designer? With more than 60% of the housing as permanently affordable, the Holiday neighborhood provides great housing for young families and co-housers of all ages.

Won’t you join me in voting for NoBo as the region’s best example of a live-work-play new neighborhood? Watch the video and vote on line. You can vote as often as you like. The votes will be tallied in early April and the DRCOG award will be given on channel 9.

Viva NoBo!
