BCDP takes No Position on Ballot Question 2F*:
Rationale — The 2021 annexation agreement would put the 308-acre CU-South property within City of Boulder city limits, which would require the City to provide water and sewer service and access to city streets and other services.. The annexation agreement anticipates 1,100 new housing units (10% required to be “affordable”) and 750,000 sq feet of non-residential development, plus a flood mitigation project for the South Boulder Creek main channel that includes an approximately one mile long concrete floodwall along U.S. 36 and an earthen dam near Table Mesa Drive to temporarily contain South Boulder Creek floodwater, from up to a 100-Year flood, on part of the CU-South property.
If the annexation agreement is repealed, the referendum does not direct what would happen with the CU-South property.
This referendum was in response to City Council’s decision to approve the CU South annexation agreement in September 2021 which preempted Ballot Question 302’s proposal to allow Boulder City voters to vote on approval of a CU South Annexation agreement. Ballot Question 302 ultimately failed to pass in the 2021 general election, and opponents of the 2021 annexation agreement then successfully collected signatures to place this question to repeal Ordinance 8483 on the ballot.
