Downtown Boulder Partnership

September 18, 2023. The Downtown Boulder Partnership Board of Directors supports the Safe Zones 4 Kids 2023 ballot initiative. Amending the prohibited items ordinance BRC 8-3-21 to enact a prioritized enforcement zone of 500 feet from school property lines and 50 feet from multi-use paths and sidewalks unequivocally reinforces the city’s commitment to our community in putting the safety and well-being of students, residents and visitors as a top priority throughout the city.
