You Have the Power to Decide


A Public Forum

When: Tuesday, June 28
Time: 6:00-9:30 p.m.
Where: East Boulder Community Center, 5660 Sioux Drive

Boulder’s 20-year franchise agreement with Xcel Energy expired last year, giving our community the chance to determine the best path for achieving its energy goals. Now the city is considering a variety of proposals, including the creation of a municipal utility, or a commitment to a new 20-year franchise with Xcel in a partnership that includes a major investment in wind energy.

It is important for the Boulder community to be informed and engaged in the decision about the future of the city’s energy options. The city is holding a series of public meetings to provide information on the research and analysis to date, and to gather your feedback.


Welcome: Boulder Mayor Susan Osborne

Local Utility Proposal: Presented by City of Boulder staff.

Xcel Proposal: Xcel has been invited to present; city staff will comment.

Public Feedback: Question period followed by open microphone for comments. Each presenter allowed two minutes. Please register when you arrive; speakers will present in first-come, first-served order. Speakers who cannot be accommodated will be invited to submit comments in writing.
