Walking Tour Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of OSMP and Transportation Innovations
Sat. Nov. 4, 1-3 p.m.
50 years ago, Boulder residents had a wild idea: They passed the nation’s first “Greenbelts” sales tax that began the funding for City of Boulder Open Space and Mountain Parks – the land you own and support with your taxes! This innovative ballot measure also included funding for city transportation improvements.
You are welcome to join a free, fun and Informative 2.5 mile walk through Boulder's history starting at 9th Street and Boulder Creek Path. Attendees can meet at the Chief Niwot Statue at 1 p.m. Boulder Walks Leader Darcy Kitching and City of Boulder Historic Preservation Planner Marcy Cameron will lead the discussion about the Greenbelt amendment and other significant sites in the heart of Boulder.
This tour is part of a series of events celebrating Boulder residents' historic decision to dedicate sales tax funding for open space acquisitions and transportation innovations. Learn more
