Subdivision Paving

The Boulder County Comprehensive Plan (BCCP) provides guidance on gravel and paved roads accepted for maintenance in unincorporated Boulder County. The BCCP stipulates that funding for major repairs should be prioritized for the county’s arterial and collector roadways, and that funding of local access roads (aka “subdivision roads”) shall be the responsibility of those served by the road (property owners).

While the county does not conduct major repairs (full roadway resurfacing) on subdivision roads, our Road Maintenance crews still conduct the following operations on these roads: snow removal, pothole patching, clearing of ditches, culverts, and other drainage structures, replacement/repairs of sidewalks, and roadway crack sealing and patching to maintain public safety.

Public Improvement Districts

Boulder County continues to work with unincorporated subdivision residents to find a solution for fixing deteriorating subdivision roads. In 2017, the first Public Improvement District, Burgundy Park, was formed to create a funding mechanism for road reconstruction and paving within a specified subdivision. Repaving of Burgundy Park subdivision roads took place in the summer of 2019.
