"We are hopelessly behind tonight," Jones says. Doing a process check in to move some stuff off the agenda.
Brautigam suggests taking off the meth/encampments discussion: "I would like to separate them in the future, bc they seem to be really different."
"It will be a tough job for (council) to reschedule but they don't need to happen tonight and other things on the agenda do need to happen tonight."
"We're just not going to make it tonight."
OK, that discussion has been postponed.
"That puts us close to being behind, not just very behind."

Up now is a presentation/public hearing on the 30th Street and Colorado properties the city needs to build two pedestrian underpasses there.
The whole project will cost $12.5M. City is putting up $5.1M and CU will kick in $2.65M plus $500K in donated land. Feds will contribute a further $4.75M
"This project will require us to acquire temporary easements, permanent easements and small portions of right-of-way," says staff member whose name I did not catch but am actively seeking.

Boulder is working with property owners but may need to use eminent domain, if CC OKs it.
Since this uses federal funds, there's a process the city has to follow: the Uniform Act Property Acquisition Process. If negotiations don't work on the purchase price, it has to go to court.
"That's a place we rarely go," staff says, "we don't expect to need eminent domain." BUT.. there is a hard deadline (July 1) to acquire the property and get the federal funding.
If all goes well, underpasses will be done by March/April 2021
Carlisle asks about CU's portion; last time I wrote about this, CU was only contributing $400K. When plan went from one diagonal underpass to two, CU agreed to split the cost 50/50. boulderbeat.news/2019/02/17/bou…
"That's a great result," Carlisle says.
No one signed up for public hearing.
Morzel: I'm supporting this bc it seems to be a good thing for everyone. This intersection is a top ten crasher. This is an incredibly busy intersection; to get ppl out of harm's way is our primary goal.
Jones: "It is a win-win-win."
Vote is unanimous. 7-0
