Boulder County is at a turning point. Do we become another wealthy enclave with little economic, social and racial diversity? Or, do we embrace a vibrant future that includes economic and cultural diversity with housing for people at all stages of life? In Boulder County, we can make the way for a better and brighter future for all residents, no exceptions.
