The Annual Louisville Street Faire is on! This idyllic evening boasts live music, food, drinks, children’s actives, arts, crafts and fun for the whole family! Enjoy summer evening out, Fridays from 5 to 10pm.

 

It is described this way: For three or four hours, eight summertime Friday evenings, life is just like it should be. Babies don’t cry, dogs don’t bark, and wise elders feel nineteen again.

Heading To Chautauqua? Take The Park-to-Park Shuttle Ride On The Weekends This Summer!

What is there not to love about Chautauqua? Nothing! But parking has been a problem for this super popular park so Boulder has initiated a new program to help control traffic called Park-toPark.

What is Park to Park?

The Park to Park pilot program, which provides satellite parking and free shuttle service to and from Chautauqua, is part of the Chautauqua Access Management Plan (CAMP) project to explore ways to create a better visitor experience while reducing vehicular and parking impacts on neighbors and the area’s natural and cultural resources.

Shuttle Basics:

The temporary shuttle service, which runs every Saturday and Sunday from June 3 – August 27, is a convenient, stress-free way to access Chautauqua no matter how you travel – by foot, car, bike, skateboard or otherwise.

But before you go, some quick facts about the shuttle:

  • FREE: Ride to and from Chautauqua without breaking the bank
  • FAST: The shuttle runs every 15 minutes from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
  • DOGS are welcome! And yes, there’s room for all your gear, too.

Critical Questions Buyers Should Ask Sellers

Critical Questions Buyers Should Ask Sellers

Buyers will glean plenty of information from the seller’s disclosure agreement, the home inspector, and maybe even their new neighbors. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t a few questions they should ask the seller at the walkthrough or before closing.

Realtor.com® suggests buyers ask some of the following questions of sellers:

  1. Have you had any past problems with the home that you’ve repaired?
  2. Can you tell me where the water shutoff valve, sump pump, circuit box, and more are located?
  3. Is there anything you wanted to leave behind?
