The Downtown Boulder Partnership (DBP) has assembled a cohort of community members who collectively advise and collaborate on programs and policies that support and enhance stronger connections to, participation in and pride for downtown Boulder among residents. Community Advisory Board members serve a two-year term.
The Community Advisory Board (CAB) is an integral link between Downtown Boulder and our communities. The work of the Community Advisory Board builds and fosters partnerships, strengthens connections and enhances engagement in Downtown Boulder.
Downtown plays many significant roles in our collective approach to equity in Boulder. Our approach must begin with inclusive representation and participation. There are many steps that Downtown Boulder Partnership and the constituents which it represents must take to understand and remove barriers that prevent meaningful participation in the planning, programming and benefiting from the activities of Downtown Boulder.
We define equity as the fair treatment, opportunity, and advancement of all people, while eliminating barriers that prevent the full participation of marginalized groups.
In 2021, CAB Members provided recommendations to DBP with the goal of fostering greater inclusivity in downtown Boulder. These recommendations represent the start of the ongoing conversation around JEDI (Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion) in the community. Many of these recommendations are strongly tied to the City of Boulder's Racial Equity Plan.
