PID Boundaries Set
BY KIM GLASSCOCK
Boundaries have been set for the proposed Public Improvement District, which would finance road reconstruction and repaving of subdivision and local access roads in Niwot, if approved.
As proposed, the PID would include most of Boulder County’s designated Niwot Community Service Area, which encompasses about 18 miles of roads, according to Boulder County transportation officials.
Niwot Community Association executive board members unanimously approved those boundaries on Jan. 4.
The NCA is coordinating the move to form the proposed PID. In July 2011, NCA members supported moving forward with a ballot proposal to create a front-loaded public improvement district, which would raise tax revenues to specifically fund road repaving and rehabilitation for subdivision and local access roads in Niwot. The tax would apply to property owners on those roads.Read more: PID Boundaries Set February 2012

The band included NHS student Quinn Kalinski (top) on tuba, who also plays with the NHS Pep Band. Although the band roused the crowd with a variety of tunes, including the NHS fight song, the Cougars lost to Mountain View.
