As we kick off the school year, let's take a moment to recognize our place in the city of Boulder community. With many of us living in neighborhoods, amongst families and individual residents alike, we have the responsibility to take care of the community we live in and respect the people around us.
Here are a few ways we can be good neighbors to our fellow classmates and to the city of Boulder residents around us:
- Smile! We live in one of the greatest cities in America.
- Get to know the neighbors. Start a conversation.
- Try to keep noise levels low; there are laws about this.
- When hosting a party off-campus, please sign up for the Party Registration Program.
- Unlike a nuisance party ticket, registering your party is free.
- If you receive a noise complaint about your house, police dispatch will simply call and give you a warning. You will have 20 minutes to shut the party down, avoiding the police and a ticket.
- Lock your doors and your windows when you go out.
- Keep your porch light on, or replace your light if it has burned out.
- Keep the Hill looking vibrant! If you see litter or trash in your yard or in the street, please pick it up.
Let’s be conscious of where we live, who we live next to, and how we can make the city of
Boulder a better, cleaner and safer place!
