East Bookend of the Civic Area

East Bookend


What's happening?

The Boulder Civic Area and is now moving into the next phase of planning and community engagement which will focus on creating an area plan for the East Bookend, an area bounded by Arapahoe Avenue, Canyon Boulevard, Broadway and 14 th /15 th Streets. This East Bookend area planning process will take place through 2018 and into 2019. It will analyze and narrow down the potential uses that have been identified for the East Bookend to provide a preferred option for the future redevelopment of the area. The area planning process will be informed by community input, previous planning efforts, and detailed analysis of the site and its potential future uses.


As a first step in the planning process, city staff has created the Civic Area East Bookend Existing Conditions Report pdfto provide a comprehensive inventory and clear understanding of the existing status of the Civic Area East Bookend, while also documenting the prior planning, research, and analysis that has been done within the area. This report will serve as a foundation for the planning process by identifying key considerations that need to be addressed throughout the planning and implementation processes.
