What An Honor! Boulder Named #1 College Town

screen-shot-2016-11-28-at-1-57-20-pm

Boulder rocks! #Boulder has been named the named the No. 1 College Town in the nation by the American Institute for Economic Research. The ranking is based on nine criteria that measure cultural, demographic and economic qualities and we came in at the top!

Here is what the American Institute for Economic Research says about our town:

“Boulder takes the prize for top college town this year. The city boasts first place in demographics, quality of life, and economic conditions. The weather is perfect and the surrounding creeks, trails, and mountains attract those with a mad love of the outdoors. In fact, Boulder became the first U.S. city to tax itself specifically to preserve open space. The result? Great urban outdoor space for those who love the outdoors. In addition, it is one of the most accessible college towns in the country, with over 20 percent of commuters choosing public transportation or cycling up and down the Boulder Creek Corridor. The educated, relatively diverse, and fit populace enjoys a great bar and restaurant scene with the best fair-trade coffee and microbreweries in the Rockies. If this is not enough, Boulder also brags favorable labor markets and high innovation levels, in thanks partly to the University of Colorado’s flagship campus.”

Airbnb. VRBO. Boulder’s New Ordinance On Short-Term Rentals Are In Effect!

Screen Shot 2016-01-05 at 11.00.23 AM

 

Boulder’s new rules on short-term rentals went into effect on Monday, January 4, 2016. Boulder’s short-term rental ordinance means homeowners renting to visitors for less than 30 days at a time need a short-term rental license. That means the hundreds of Boulder units listed on #VRBO and #Airbnb are in violation of the law. It’s not clear how Boulder will handle these violations.

What is a short-term rental? Short-term rentals are properties that are rented for less than 30 days at a time, excluding dwellings owned by the federal government, the state, or any of their agencies or political subdivisions and facilities licensed by the state as health care facilities; also excluding permanently affordable units. Learn more about the definition of a short-term rental and how to apply for a license here – /bouldercolorado.gov/plan-develop/short-term-rentals

Boulder City Council Approves 100 Percent Clean Electricity by 2030

screen-shot-2016-12-13-at-1-20-27-pm

BOULDER, Colo. – Last night [December 6, 2016], the Boulder City Council approved a measure to transition to 100 percent clean, renewable electricity by 2030. The Council considered the move as a major step toward reaching the city’s longer-term goal of reducing its greenhouse gas emissions by 80 percent by the year 2050.

Sarah Huntley, the city’s deputy director of communications, said Boulder is taking conservation efforts, which typically ask people to use less energy, in a different direction.

“What we’re trying to do is shift to renewable and clean electricity, away from fossil fuels that have harmful greenhouse gas emissions and toward cleaner renewable sources that we actually could use in abundance, if we have been able to make this transformation,” she explained.
