Planning Board

The Planning Board reviews and approves certain site and use review applications, studies long-range planning matters including the Boulder Valley Comprehensive Plan and makes recommendations to City Council. It also serves as an advisory board to City Council on applications for annexation and rezoning.

The Planning Board generally meets on the first and third, and occasionally fourth, Thursday of each month at 6 p.m. in the City Council Chambers, 1777 Broadway. Meeting dates, times and locations are subject to change. Please scroll down to view the upcoming meeting dates.

The Planning Board consists of seven members appointed by City Council, each to a five-year term. One member of Planning Board is appointed to attend the Landmarks Board, Design Advisory Board and Housing Advisory Board meetings to act as a non-voting or ex-officio member.
