Due to the City of Boulder’s ongoing efforts to mitigate the potential spread of COVID-19, our City Manager has required all Boards and Commisions Hearings to be held virtually. 

To permit the BLA to evaluate witness credibility, any witness, including the licensee/applicant or their representatives, providing testimony or other comments to the BLA during the public hearing must appear by video (and all other witnesses may similarly appear by video), with the camera showing the witness from the shoulders up, and shall make themselves available through such electronic device capable of such video connection.

If you are unable to access the hearing by video connection or for questions on providing video comments for a public hearing matter, please contact City Licensing staff at [email protected] or by calling      303-441-4192.

For all questions regarding the BLA hearing please contact [email protected]

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

The BLA meets the third Wednesday of each month starting at 3 p.m. at The Municipal Building-Council Chambers-2nd Floor, 1777 Broadway .
