Finalist: Boulder Civic Center Vision

CIVIC CENTER VISION
The City of Boulder’s offices are dispersed.
• Consolidate all City Offices west of Broadway to create a true Civic Center Campus.
• Locate new City offices along Arapahoe at grade or on stilts increasing the Civic Center quad by 2 acres.
• Retain the existing Library, Senior Center, and Municipal Buildings
• Increase the open space/expansion of the Boulder Creek Riparian Corridor/Civic Park by 2 acres to mitigate the flood impacts.

CULTURAL COMPLEX VISION
Boulder has a rich cultural history, but not a cohesive Cultural Complex downtown.
• Cultural uses belong downtown.
• City owns almost all of the block including the Tea House, BMoCA and accommodates the Farmer’s Market.
• Clustering Museums, Performing Arts Center, Outdoor Amphitheater and expanding the Farmers Market, this block can become the “cultural heart” of Boulder.
• Make 13th Street the Cultural Promenade connecting to Boulderado Hotel.
• Once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
