What can we do SOON to improve the area?

Thanks to community input, the Boulder Civic Area project is beginning to develop a long-term (20+ year) vision for the heart of Boulder. But, the community has also expressed a lot of interest in seeing near-term solutions – like lighting, art and seating. These “catalytic” ideas are improvements that could be done fairly quickly (i.e., within 2 years), for a reasonable cost and would help make the area more inviting and functional, while the city works toward the community’s longer-term vision.

Some of the ideas we’ve heard are:

//Make the area (or a specific site) family-friendly, safe and more welcoming with amenities like more parks features, improved lighting, etc.

//Provide temporary solutions for the Farmers’ Market such as improved space configuration or expansion, circulation and service/delivery improvements

//Add new amenities like seating, sculptures/ art, water features, gardens, or play areas

//Improve access and enhance Boulder Creek and the Farmers’ Ditch

//Add a cohesive design theme (e.g. signs, lights, landscaping, etc.) to give identity to and unite the area

//Develop more programming in the area like music in bandshell, art exhibit in park, etc.

What’s your catalytic idea?
