In Boulder, city staff presented preliminary flood mitigation plans to a crowd of around 70 people on Wednesday evening. The meeting comes close to six months after a controversial City Council decision to support the development of the flood mitigation project plan running along the Goose Creek wildlife corridor in central Boulder. Many who live along Goose Creek say the city has failed to get input from residents about how the plan could impact their homes or a beloved urban wildlife corridor. KGNU’s Alexis Kenyon attended the meeting and told us about how it went.
