Dear Neighbors

On Tuesday, August 4th, 2015 Boulder’s City Council will vote on a slate of proposals to prevent South Boulder Creek floodwaters from overtopping U.S. 36.

If flood mitigation is approved, it has the potential to remove many homes in Boulder, Colorado from the South Boulder Creek 100-year flood plain, and would mitigate the effects of a 500-year flood.

If City Council fails to proceed with plans to mitigate flooding at South Boulder Creek then it will fail to protect vulnerable residents in and near Boulder’s Frasier and Keewaydin Meadows neighborhoods – a diverse area containing single family homes, apartments, townhomes and Frasier Meadows Retirement Community –  from the overtopping of U.S. 36 that happened in the flood of September 2013.
