Boulder Valley Comprehensive Plan mid-term update

Thank you for your interest in previous Boulder Valley Comprehensive Plan updates. The City of Boulder has recently started the Boulder Valley Comprehensive Plan (BVCP) 2020 mid-term update. As a partner to the BVCP, we support the city’s efforts to help the community create and preserve a sustainable future for the Boulder Valley and a high quality of life.

In the mid-term update, the public may submit requests for changes in the BVCP regarding land use and / or policy that do not involve significant city and county resources, making only minor additions or clarifications to the policy section. Some of the potential changes that are considered in the mid-term update include the following:

  • Changes to the Land Use Map
  • Changes to the Area I,II,III Map
  • Planning Area boundary changes
  • Minor edits to the policy section (Ch. III)
  • Minor text edits
  • Changes to the Subcommunity and Area Plan section (Ch. V)
  • Changes to the Master Plan and Program summaries (Ch. VI)
  • Changes to the Urban Service Criteria and Standards (Ch. VII)

BVCP request forms and additional information can be found on the city’s mid-term update website. The submission deadline is Monday, March 2, 2020.
