I have graciously been lent a computer for the night since mine crapped out this morning. If you've got a spare, lmk.
Tell us about a neighborhood other than your own that you view positively. What makes it a good neighborhood, and what would make it better.
Moyer butts in: You're fired. Tell me one. We're not up here for platitudes.
McIntyre: Goss Grove, for walkability. Walkability and cycle-ability is the key to having neighborhoods that work for ppl.
Cure: I'm a renter and father of two young girls. Mentions ADUs and then goes a bit into some political speak. Cut him off, Masyn!
Swetlik: We can ask corporations that bring ppl to town actually pay enough. Living wage, rent control. "Hoping we get a council that will be aggressive on housing issues not just here but at the state level."
It's building better buildings. We're using less energy with new buildings. The greenest building is the one you don't build, but we have better technology.
Joseph and Duran taking this.
Applause and then heckling from the audience: "60,000 in-commuters!!!"
Friend: I'm devastated the words flood mitigation are in my q and I'm not supposed to speak to that. CU is the heartbeat of Boulder and why we are Boulder, so yes, that relationship is important.
Haynes and Orba taking.
Is Boulder at or approaching its max population? Yes from McIntyre and Wallach.
Do you support Boulder's muni? Nos from McIntyre, Benjamin and someone else I couldn't see.
Are climate goals important enough to pursue in the face of opposition? Yes from everbody.
Should Boulder allow fourplexes in SF zones? No from Swetlik and Wallach.
Renters or common walls (condos, etc.) Nos from McIntyre, Wallach and Duran
What roles do walking/biking/bus service play in reducing traffic in Boulder?
Brockett and Joseph taking this.
Cure: I think he's saying we need representation in leadership. "A lot of times it's sitting back and listening and not be determined to force communication on ppl."
How about housing, an audience member shouts out?
Benjamin: There is a cost to being green, and it can be too great. Has not supported muni in the past, bc economy is pushing every utility to green up.
Wallach and Friend.
McIntyre: I would advocate strongly for a ward or district-based system, with some at-large seats, would enlarge council, pay council a living wage and advocate for rank-choice voting.
Moyer: Are you familiar with options on the table?
Orba: I'm not.
