Connect and Learn Together

Thanks to all who came to the June 21, 2017 Housing Dialogue! We had a large turnout of activists, innovators, and stakeholders to hear David Barrett's rousing, well-informed call to "mix it up" with a diversity of housing types across the city! We are grateful to all for making it successful (link to summary video). Stay tuned for a follow up event starting with "a "History of Boulder Housing" in Fall 2018. See our other events for opportunities to connect to and learn with other enthusiasts about the shape and quality of our city.
