Boulder Shelter for the Homeless applies to expand to serve as Boulder Day Shelter. 

The Boulder Shelter for the Homeless has applied to the City of Boulder to expand its services and open a day shelter, according to The Daily Camera.  Currently, the shelter only offers nighttime services. If approved, the shelter could operate 24/7 and provide various essential resources and services.

A spokesperson for the shelter said they would need to hire up to 12 new staff members and hope to find service providers to offer all necessary services in one place. Shelter representatives are optimistic the city will approve the day center. Creating a Boulder Day Shelter has long been a top priority for city leaders but has struggled to find a location.

CU Boulder to Discuss Concealed Carry Ban on Campus

For the first time since 2012, the University of Colorado Boulder will consider banning concealed carry of firearms on campus, according to The Denver Post

In 2012, a lawsuit overturned a ban on concealed carry at the university, making it one of the only university campuses in Colorado that allows people to carry concealed firearms.
In 2021, Colorado lawmakers reversed the Colorado Supreme Court’s decision that CU did not have the right to ban people who conceal weapons. CU Regent Wanda James proposed revising the policy to ban concealed carry on Tuesday during a Board of Regents committee meeting after consistent requests from faculty and staff. The board plans to discuss the ban during an April meeting but would not vote on any revision until June.

One Step Closer to Boulder Creek Flood Mitigation Project

On Thursday, the City of Boulder approved two deals that would take them one step further in a Boulder flood mitigation plan.  The project would transfer two acres of open space just east of Foothills Parkway and South of Highway 36 to the city to build a flood wall and a spillway.

Boulder City Council also approved the annexation of a bigger parcel of about 27 acres of land at the CU South campus, where they will set up most flood mitigation infrastructure.
The plan comes after heavy pushback from community groups in South Boulder in years past.

The plan will cost around 63 million dollars and passed last week with little community opposition from community speakers.
