City Launching Comprehensive Flood and Stormwater Master Plan Update, Seeking Community Working Group Members
The City of Boulder has kicked off its update to the Comprehensive Flood and Stormwater (CFS) Master Plan.
The master plan was last updated in 2004 and guides city policy for flood management; stormwater quality and drainage; emergency preparedness and resilience; regulations; project prioritization; and education and outreach.
To support the update to the plan, the city is seeking community members to join a Community Working Group (CWG). The CWG will provide feedback to city staff and the project consultant during the master planning process. It will be comprised of individuals who live in Boulder who bring a broad range of perspectives to flood and stormwater management (i.e., residents, property owners, community advocates, water professionals). The CWG will be asked to:
- Identify and examine issues related to stormwater and flood management;
- Review and comment on technical documents;
- Provide feedback about plan completeness and alignment with community goals and values;
- Assist with community outreach; and,
- Participate at public events, including at advisory boards and City Council meetings.
Interested individuals can apply by submitting an application online by Oct. 14, 2020. Hard-copy applications can be requested by emailing [email protected] or calling Laurel Olsen at 720-456-8819. Chosen applicants will be informed of their selection by Nov. 30, 2020. Working group meetings will begin in early 2021.
The CWG is the first step in the CFS master planning process, which will also include a larger public process to gather ideas and feedback from the community.
