CU Boulder has been listening closely to the community – to citizens, elected officials and members of boards and commissions – as the Boulder Valley Comprehensive Plan (BVCP) discussion around the CU Boulder South property has unfolded over the past year. The university is about to begin its regular 10-year planning review for the campus, which will more specifically inform the university and general community of what may be developed on the CU Boulder South property. But culmination of that plan will take several years of effort. However, we have heard clearly that more detail about what might be placed there is a top priority for elected officials and the community. To respond to that priority, we have developed some initial concepts on how CU Boulder envisions the potential use of our property.

This website provides a concept plan that outlines our assumptions and provides a related concept map to share our best estimates of how we would use CU Boulder South to meet CU Boulder’s future needs while simultaneously working to accommodate the community’s desires. Please take some time to look around the site at the various resources posted here. We invite our campus community and the public at large to provide comment in an online survey that will remain open through 11:59 p.m. on May 17, 2017.

That survey feedback will help us determine adjustments, refinements and clarifications to the draft concept plan assumptions and map so that updated versions can be provided to local governing bodies to inform their deliberations and decisions on the upcoming BVCP adoption.

An approval of the BVCP with a changed land-use designation for CU Boulder South would allow annexation discussions between the university and the city to occur. Even with an approval of the BVCP and an annexation agreement in place, the sites designated for development at CU Boulder South will take many years to complete. The university will remain focused in the near term on developing the main and east campuses, but a finalized annexation agreement would help inform CU Boulder’s own visioning process as the University embarks on updating its campus master plan.
