Public invited to learn about and give feedback on annexation agreement

The City of Boulder and the University of Colorado are in negotiations to annex the University of Colorado's South Campus, the "CU South" property. If annexed, CU South would come under the city's jurisdiction and utility services could be extended to the site. The city and CU team worked to develop the agreement to fulfill shared goals, mitigate future impacts and define community benefits.

This effort would support vital flood mitigation efforts in the area. A range of topics will be addressed in the annexation agreement including future uses (primarily housing), transportation, public access, development limitations and many others. A draft annexation agreement will be released in July 2021. Community members are encouraged to share feedback on the draft agreement once it is released.
