Final draft to be discussed Oct. 16


Boulder County, Colo. – The Boulder County Commissioners will hold a public hearing on the Climate Change Preparedness Plan developed earlier this year for the county in partnership with the City of Boulder.

When: Tuesday, Oct. 16 at 9 a.m.
Where: Boulder County Courthouse, third floor, 1325 Pearl St., Boulder

The draft plan was released for public comment in January and February and has since been revised in response to those comments and offered to the City of Boulder for review.

“This plan is an important step toward integrating our existing public health, emergency management and resource management plans in the context of the changing climate,” said Boulder County Sustainability Planner Lisa Friend. “Thanks to this process, we’ve identified where gaps might be in our planning – whether in disaster recovery, water resource management or educating vulnerable populations about extreme heat – and we’ve already begun to close them.”

The plan is available for review on the county’s Climate Change Preparedness Plan webpage (visit and search “climate change plan”). For additional information, contact Lisa Friend at 303-441-3522 or
