Project Overview

The Comprehensive Flood and Stormwater (CFS) Master Plan is the guiding policy document for Boulder's Stormwater and Flood Utility.

The purpose of the Comprehensive Flood and Stormwater Master Plan is to improve the management of stormwater to help protect people, places, property and ecosystems in the City of Boulder in a way that builds resilience and is consistent with community values.

Public Workshops

The City of Boulder is holding a series of virtual public workshops this fall on flood and stormwater mitigation around the major water basins and creeks in Boulder as part of the city’s Comprehensive Flood and Stormwater (CFS) Master Plan update.

The workshops will provide community members the opportunity to learn more about the master plan, hear what the city has identified as issues surrounding each basin and participate in small group discussions and an activity about equity in flood and stormwater management and the framework the city will use to prioritize future flood and stormwater projects.

Virtual workshop dates (all workshops will be from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m.):

No reservation is required to join the meetings. The meeting link for each individual meeting will be posted on the individual event page above 24 hours prior to the start of the meeting.

Please consider filling out a comment form after participating in a creek meeting.
