Alpine-Balsam Area Planning Initiative

After nearly 4 years of consideration, $4 million annual interest/upkeep payments and consistent citizen feedback about the need for the site to meet urgent housing needs, City Council recently blinked before beginning a $12.5 million deconstruction of the main former BCH hospital building but then resumed an Area Planning process. This summer is the opportunity for a citizen-led redevelopment vision (Get Our Money’s Worth) and Case for Density) that optimizes social return with significant middle income housing and affordable office development. Please email us to volunteer for small, satisfying and deeply impactful tasks to ensure AB becomes a highly livable, transformative project in the best tradition of Boulder innovation.
