Intergovernmental Affairs

The city closely tracks and attempts to influence matters that, although falling outside of the city's jurisdictional authority, have the potential of significantly impacting the Boulder community. The office of intergovernmental affairs ensures that the city’s interests are furthered through the development of strategic alliances and informed engagement with other local, regional, state and federal governmental entities. It is led by Chief Policy Advisor Carl Castillo, who works in close coordination with city council members, the city manager and city departments to develop and communicate official city positions on intergovernmental matters. The office oversees the development and implementation of the city's Regional, State and Federal Policy Agenda including all related coalition-building, collaborations and advocacy necessary to advance the stated positions.
