Open Boulder

We are Open Boulder – a Boulder organization that encourages broad community involvement, government accountability, and practical local government decisions to enhance our lives, whether at home, work, or play.

Government Transparency - Local city and county government decisions are the ones that impact us the most. We believe it is the citizens’ responsibility to hold our local representatives accountable. Open Boulder will support and encourage initiatives that will improve representation for Boulder’s broader population and encourage openness and accountability in local government decisions.

Accessibility to Open Space - Open Boulder’s mission is to connect people to our community’s treasured places in a sustainable manner. Environmentalism and active outdoor recreation go hand in hand. Many of us actively use Open Space and Mountain Parks to hike, climb, run, bike and walk our dogs, and we value the ability to experience nature so close to an urban environment. We gladly pay open space taxes, but our local government does not always value active recreation. In response to increasing use, land managers often implement further restrictions rather than expanding opportunities for visitors to recreate responsibly. We believe that connecting people to our community’s treasured places in a sustainable manner is exactly what we need to do to build support for conservation.
