BOULDER BARRELS: WATER BRINGS COMMUNITIES AND PLANNERS TOGETHER IN COLORADO

Zilient.org: Revered for its natural beauty, the city of Boulder in the United States is a popular destination for those looking to enjoy the great outdoors.

But sitting at the foot of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado, the city is subject to drought, flash flooding, and rising housing costs. In recent years, eight mobile-home communities in Boulder have become the city’s best option for affordable housing.

Like most home owners, these residents want to make improvements to their neighborhood, save money on their bills, and strengthen their community.

Previously, a distant relationship between mobile-home owners and local government has made it difficult to do so and even prevented awareness of resources and opportunities available to them.

This relationship has improved over the last two years as mobile-home residents and city hall officials have worked together to build a stronger Boulder through participation in the Cities of Service Resilience AmeriCorps program.

The result of a months-long effort was a city organized workshop with Rebuild by Design in December 2017 to discuss the future of the Ponderosa Mobile Home Park. Read more here>>
