Public Meetings Scheduled to Discuss Options for Unincorporated Subdivision Paving
Boulder County, Colo. – There are approximately 150 miles of paved roads in nearly 120 subdivisions in unincorporated Boulder County that are in poor or deteriorating condition and need to be rehabilitated. Without action being taken, these roads will continue to get worse and become more expensive to fix.
In November, registered voters in unincorporated Boulder County subdivisions will have the opportunity to vote on whether to form a Public Improvement District (PID) to permanently address the issue of fixing subdivision roads and keeping them in good condition. If the PID fails to pass, a Local Improvement District (LID) will go into effect to pay to repair the roads on a one-time basis over a 15-year project duration.Read more: Public Meetings Scheduled to Discuss Options for Unincorporated Subdivision Paving 7.15.13
