It's not being considered currently, but could be considered when city does the RFP for construction, Richman says.
Richman: We hadn't thought about a pre-sale model. Might impact the debt financing that Boulder will use (certificates of participation)
Richman: It will be a significant impact to community in terms of streets being closed, digging, sidewalks marked up, etc.
If the city can reuse existing conduits, and doesn't do any laterals: $16.862M
With laterals, that goes to $19.086M
With laterals: $20.265M
Richman: Our idea is to get as close as possible, and we'll figure out what's next after that.
Scott: With RTD, their interest is just in raw fiber connectivity to their facilities. Downtown, Boulder Junction, Table Mesa and 63rd Street park n ride
Richman: A significant amount: No range estimate, but for construction and labor and permitting, etc.
Scott: Obvs with crews out, there's efficiencies to them putting a fiber lateral in at the same time.
Also repeats requests that staff ask RTD to pay for laterals to their sites. Many jokes about the train.
Richman: I'll look into that
BHP will be returning tonight for council's call-up consideration of 30th/Pearl. (I didn't write about it bc it seems unlikely council will call it up, since it's on a tight timeline. Brockett requested that they not.)
Weaver: Furthermore, we're preempted from making any rules about it by state and federal rules. Ppl to talk to about this are state and federal representatives.
