Letters to Santa
We really miss Nancy here in Niwot. Can you see what you can do about getting her back? We’d really appreciate anything you can do to help her get better.
—The Crew and Customers at
2nd Avenue Hair
Dear Mr. Claus:
Sir, we would respectfully request another box of cookies from the Moms in Niwot. They make the best cookies, Sir, and we would be eternally grateful if they arrived before Christmas. And if they could get some cookies from that football player, that would be icing on the cake (and they could send that too).
Very Truly Yours,
This may be out of your jurisdiction, but what we would really like for Christmas is your assurance that we can have all of those customers in Gunbarrel. We realize they can’t vote us in or out, but we are convinced that we can do this better than the folks who changed their name from “Public Service” a few years ago.

Please bring us lots of paint for the left-handed chairs in our town. We are not all left-handed but you don’t have to be left-handed to sit in the chairs – we have a lot of left-handed chairs because our town is named after a famous chief, who was left-handed, and that’s his name too – Niwot. Anyway, we heard they are having a contest to make them pretty and we need some paint so we can help out.

A Tree Grows in Niwot

The LID approved $1,240 to purchase a live 16-foot blue spruce tree, which was planted Nov. 8 near 79th Street and Niwot Road. “We used to bring in a cut tree every year, and it blew over a couple of years,” said NBA streetscapes committee Chair Chuck Klueber. “It just seemed to be a better idea to plant a permanent tree.”

Road LID Approved
BY KIM GLASSCOCK
Members of Boulder County Fairness in Road Maintenance asked Boulder County Commissioners for a one-year delay in creating a local improvement district for roads following the defeat of a public improvement district proposal on the November ballot.
The one-year wait would give county transportation staff time to develop repaving cost estimates and plans for each subdivision, and to determine which county subdivision roads were damaged by the September flooding and will have their repair costs reimbursed with federal and state funds.Read more: Road LID Approved December 2013
