Connect and Learn Together

Thanks to all of our attendees! Our first event had a large turnout of activists, innovators, and stakeholders; we are grateful to each one of you for making it successful.  The community's investment in building and improving our neighborhoods to better fit our needs and values is inspiring. Taking initiative is very important, and we would like to spotlight some efforts that our guests shared with us!  "We’re going to move into the basement of a single-family home! And we are going to do a better job of connecting with our neighbors." "I would like to have an 'Affordable Landlord' group who rent below market e.g. 'give back by not taking.' Could also include homeowners who rent a room to 'Share this home,' 'Owners who share.'" "We’re going to do a cool eco-pop top with a roof garden for rental, possibly to a co-op."

Call to Action

We have many options to get involved!  Please Invest Now!  North Street Ecodistrict, 2610 North St. Phase 1: perform energy improvements and add bedrooms for a rental or low income co-op and moderate rent housing for innovators, non-profit, and public employees. Phase 2: add up to six small units. This is an example of adaptive reuse of existing structures.  Adjacent to Alpine-Balsam Redevelopment, 2815 10th St. With 7+ bedrooms and 6 baths this could make a great mixed income co-op to house 12 or possibly more people and with a limit of three cars. Help us model how to use a beautiful large new modern home for how to live more sustainably and affordably and improve quality of life for all.  Other Steps:  Building Community Series, 5:30 Wednesday August 23 at Biergarten will be more interactive series focusing on the ideas you all shared. We will focus on Innovate for Impact submissions, and share with "Ignite" - a Pecha Kucha style presentation.  ULI Boulder Chapter will also do a salon in September (6?, or 20?) on Alpine Balsam/BCH. Email co-chairperson David Biek if interested.
