The annexation of CU Boulder South was decided collectively, among all of us. In September 2021, Boulder City Council annexed CU Boulder South after decades of work by city staff, numerous city and county boards and commissions, university officials, elected officials, and hundreds of community members who participated in engagement and outreach along the way. Multiple city councils elected by the voters continually moved CU Boulder South annexation forward, codifying numerous values shared by the community and the university. 

The annexation agreement embodies the best of Boulder: protection of life safety and open space, creation of urgently needed housing, and a commitment to public collaboration.
