Moving on: Annexation of 0 Airport and Valmont. It's near an office park. www-static.bouldercolorado.gov/docs/Item_5A_5…
This is 5.9 acres
1.6 acres is being donated for open space; the rest for lab/research space, zoned IG and Public

Planning board 7-0 recommended annexation
And that's all the notes I have cause BORING.
Plus we covered this before, for the site review on the lab/research space.
Dang, didn't see this in the packet: Developers are proposing paying 1.5X impact fees, $3.8M
Weaver asks about the open space land being gifted. It's mostly along a ditch, so it's riparian.

How will this land be accessed? I assume it can be walked and visited by anyone?
It's primarily leased ag with cattle and hay (so maybe not much access) open space staff says.
But there's a little bit by the San Lazaro mobile home park, so there will be some access.

It's open to the public, staff says (sorry, I can't see her last name so idk who she is) There's a gate
And it will be "fenced accordingly."
Developers also plan to do some bike/ped infrastructure through there. There's already a multi-use path nearby that ends in a parking lot, so I imagine it will extend a bit.
Wallach: The developer originally wanted to donate 24 acres as open space. But we didn't want it. What happens now?
Collins is the open space staffer who has been talking. She's answering this one.
I kinda missed what her answer was but Wallach asks a followup: Is it developable?
No. It has a conservation easement.
2 speakers for the public hearing: Lynn Segal and Mark Gelband.
Ok maybe no speakers...? Lynn's name was up there for like a second but I missed it.
Weaver: "I think $4M for affordable housing right now is something we can very much find a use for."
Already making a motion.
Unanimous vote. @threadreaderapp please unroll. Thanks!

Severe weather sheltering is next. That's what Boulder calls winter shelter for people experiencing homelessness, because it's typically triggered by the weather, not necessarily the season.

Staff presentation: www-static.bouldercolorado.gov/docs/Severe_We…
And my story, for review. boulderbeat.news/2020/09/19/bou…
I wrote "normally" triggered by weather. This year, they are suggesting all-night sheltering from Dec. 1- March 15, which is the coldest part of the winter, and then weather dependent (below 32 or 38 with rain/snow) for Oct. 1-Nov. 30 and March 16 - May 31

It's Tuesday, you know what that means: Another exciting edition of #Boulder city council.

Tonight's a study session, and there are two topics: Police oversight and winter sheltering.
You can read about the latter here. Council will give feedback on this staff-proposed plan. boulderbeat.news/2020/09/19/bou…
Tonight's study session will be led by Junie Joseph (council members are taking turns).

And it will start with a reading for RBG. Mark Wallach reminds me (and everyone else in Zoom) that she was one of his professors in university.

Boulder will keep evicting unrelated renters due to over-occupancy (more than 3-4 people) during the pandemic, despite governor's recommendation.

The decision followed an update on what the city is doing to help prevent evictions during COVID. threadreaderapp.com/thread/1306077…
(This is your council recap, btw). Shared, rentable standing AND seated e-scooters will be allowed in certain areas of Boulder in coming months, after a compromise. threadreaderapp.com/thread/1306050…

Something else I forgot: CU South update. No notes on this bc they didn't include anything in the packet.
CU is supposed to submit annexation proposals in early October. Friend, Weaver suggesting that Nov. 10 or Nov. 17, the council gets to review it and then do a plan for community engagement.
(flood work still ongoing, including another look at options for upstream detention)

Oh, wait, jk, we've got some e-scooter issues. I was correct that they needed 6 votes to do anything bc it was on emergency. So Carr is recommending getting 6 votes to continue the current moratorium then redoing tonight's vote later.
If not, the scooter moratorium will expire and THE STREETS COULD BE OVERRUN WITH SCOOTER GANGS!
Or a company could apply for a business license to operate here.

Now the big one, so I'll start paying attention. Occupancy limits and enforcement of those. Should the city stop evicting ppl due to over-occupancy during the pandemic? That's what council is deliberating.
Reminder: Boulder limits how many unrelated persons can live together to 3 or 4 folks. (3 in lower density areas, which is most of the city, and 4 in higher density ones)
