North Boulder Alliance Talking Points Regarding the Boulder Housing Partners Board Resolution
On Monday, November 14th, 2011 the Boulder Housing Partners Board of Commissioners adopted a resolution regarding 1175 Lee Hill. The resolution was then forwarded to the City of Boulder.
The North Boulder Alliance is encouraged to learn that the Boulder Housing Partners (BHP) has finally recognized the significant concerns and impacts that their proposed project at 1175 Lee Hill will bring to the residents of North Boulder if developed at its proposed location.
While BHP’s Board resolution covers 10 points, the following four points are directly related to 1175 Lee Hill:
1. BHP acknowledges that the Boulder Revised Code prevents the North Boulder community’s right to participate in a public process of approving 1175 Lee Hill.
2. BHP will delay submitting their application to construct 1175 Lee Hill until the land use regulations contained in the Boulder Revised Code governing chronically homeless facilities are either affirmed or revised by the City of Boulder.
3. BHP will ask the City Council to endorse BHP’s site selection criteria in order to gain guidance from the City for alternative sites.
4. BHP would like the City to set a reasonable period, for the City to study, discuss and analyze the matter in order to bring this issue to a conclusion.
The North Boulder Alliance welcomes these developments; however our work is far from done. BHP still remains committed to their plans to gain approval from the City to construct 1175 Lee Hill.
The North Boulder Alliance will continue to work hard to execute its campaign of making North Boulder residents heard loud and clear that the character and safety of the community will not be compromised.
