Incentives draw another outdoor retailer to Boulder

0

City Manager Jane S. Brautigam has approved a flexible rebate application for Boulder-based American Rec for up to $25,000 in rebates.  The rebates were authorized for sales and use taxes, and permit-related fees.

 

“American Rec’s decision to expand its operations in Boulder allows the city to be home to the company’s ten major outdoor industry brands, strengthening Boulder’s outdoor industry sector,” Brautigam said. “We are pleased that the flexible rebate program helped American Rec with its investment at its Gunbarrel location.”

 

The flexible rebate program is one of the city’s business incentives, covering a wide range of fees, equipment and construction use taxes.  Under this program, the city manager may consider a specific incentive package for tax and fee rebates to meet a company’s specific needs.  The company is then eligible for the rebate after it has made its investment and paid the taxes or fees to the city.

 

American Rec is a collection of ten prominent outdoor industry brands, including Kelty, Royal Robins, Sierra Designs, Wenzel, Slumberjack, Rokk, Insta-Bed, Mountain Trails, Ultimate Direction and ISIS. The company was founded in St. Louis, MO, and in 2010, moved its headquarters to Boulder where several of its brands were already based, and because of the strong outdoor industry and lifestyle. With the move, American Rec grew to 60 employees. After purchasing ISIS for Women and moving it to Boulder, American Rec now has almost 100 employees.  The company recently remodeled its space at 6235 Lookout Road to better accommodate its growth.

 

“The Boulder location and exposure from the Diagonal Highway is an integral part of our corporate identity,” said Brett Jordan, chief executive officer of American Rec’s Equipment Group. “The new building remodel will meet the new demands of the consolidated divisions along with anticipated growth over the next several years.”

 

The flexible rebate program uses social, community, and environmental sustainability guidelines. Companies choose the guidelines that best fit their circumstances, but must meet minimum requirements in order to receive the rebate.  American Rec has met the requirements and, of note, has a commute trip reduction program that includes alternative work schedules, showers, secure bike parking, and designated carpool parking. In addition, the company participates in volunteer industry initiatives, runs a recycling program, and will participate in the city’s energy assessment and EnergySmart programs.

 

American Rec’s application is the first 2012 flexible rebate application. The city’s approved 2012 budget includes $350,000 in funding for 2012 flexible tax and fee rebates for primary employers.

County road chip seal projects begin Monday

 

Boulder County, Colo. – The Boulder County Transportation Department will apply chip seal to 25 miles of county roads beginning this Monday, June 11.

 

Starting Monday, crews will begin working on Overland Road above Jamestown and work their way down James Canyon, and then Lefthand Canyon all the way to U.S. 36 (Foothills Highway).

 

The chip application will be followed closely by rollers and sweepers to set the material into the road surface along with the application of a “fog-coat” to further reduce the amount of loose material. The process is expected to take less than a week for each section of road.

 

2012 chip seal schedule:

 

Week of June 11

  • Overland Road
  • James Canyon Drive

 

Week of June 18

  • Lefthand Canyon Drive from James Canyon to U.S. 36
  • North 75th Street from south of St. Vrain Road to Highway 66
  • St. Vrain Road from 75th Street to Longmont city limits west of Airport Road

 

Week of June 25

  • North 73rd Street from Niwot Road to Clover Basin Drive
  • Niwot Road from 63rd Street to the Diagonal Highway (119)
  • Jay Road from U.S. 36 to 47th Street

 

Week of July 2

  • Jay Road from 47th Street to 75th Street
  • Baseline Road from 55th Street to Cherryvale Road

 

Schedules are subject to change due to weather and other factors and the projects will cause minor traffic delays. Visitwww.BoulderCounty.org/Transportation for updates.

 

Applying chip seal to county roads is a cost-effective means of extending their life and reducing potholes. Adding stone chips to pavement after it has sat for more than five years extends the pavement life considerably, allowing for more use of the original overlay. Additionally, the cost of chipping a road is a small fraction of the cost of new paving and chip sealing uses less oil and less material than paving.

 

“We understand the chip seal can be disruptive to cycling and can make for a rough ride for a period of time,” Boulder County Transportation Director George Gerstle said. “We’ll continue using the smaller chips, which we’ve used for the last two years with good results, and we will continue sweeping and fog-sealing the roads immediately after the chips are applied to create as smooth a surface as possible. However, there will still be impacts and cyclists should expect poorer riding conditions and use caution on these roads for a couple of weeks after the work is completed.”

‘Bus then Bike’ shelters open for regional commuters

Boulder County, Colo. – To make it easier for people to use the bus and their bikes, Boulder County is initiating the “Bus then Bike” program for commuters along the Diagonal Highway (119).

The county has installed a covered, secure bike shelter in both Longmont and Boulder for commuters along the Diagonal corridor who wish to use a bike to get to their final destination. The shelters, funded through a federal grant and county transportation funds, provide long-term, secure bicycle storage for commuters making connections to and from regional transit.

Bicycles and accessories can be safely stored overnight close to the bus stop, allowing commuters to avoid lugging their bike on the bus each day.

“Many people already take their bike on the bus along this corridor, which can be an inconvenience, and we want to make it easier for people to take the bus more often,” Boulder County Transportation Director George Gerstle said. “We know not everyone can take the bus all the time, but this is another example of how we are working to give more people a real choice in how they travel.”

Scott McCarey, Alternative Transportation Coordinator for Boulder County said that the program eliminates significant barriers to taking the bus. “For many people, the distance between the bus stop and their final destination is too far to walk, so this provides a convenient way to travel that final mile,” McCarey said. “And, users of the shelters never have to worry about being turned away by a bus because its bike racks or storage bins are full.”

Nataly Erving, Service Planner for RTD, said the program should reduce delays on the BOLT route. “The ability for people to park their bikes should reduce the delays caused by the loading and unloading of bikes,” she said. “Each bike that has to be loaded in the undercarriage bins takes between one and two minutes because the driver has to park the vehicle, climb out and open the bins.”

Longmont-to-Boulder Regional Trail opening July 14

0

Boulder County, Colo. – The Boulder County Transportation and Parks and Open Space departments, along with the City of Longmont, will open the north segment of the Longmont-to-Boulder Regional Trail on Thursday, July 14.

The trail segment is nearly three miles long and stretches from the Lefthand Valley Grange Trailhead on North 83rd Street to the North 95th Street bridge at Lefthand Creek in Longmont. Trail segment map.

“We are very excited about the completion of this section of the LoBo trail because it provides a long-awaited off-street alternative between Gunbarrel, Niwot and Longmont,” said Kristine Obendorf, Boulder County’s Regional Trails Planner.

A public ribbon-cutting ceremony with officials from Boulder County and Longmont will take place on July 14 at 4:30 p.m. at the Lefthand Valley Grange Trailhead near the corner of 83rd Street and Niwot Road.

Group bike rides from Longmont and Boulder that will meet at the Lefthand Valley Grange Trailhead for the ribbon-cutting ceremony are being organized. Information about the ride from Longmont is posted online. Contact Sue Prant at bikesue@gmail.com for information about the ride from Boulder.

The new trail crosses Lefthand Creek just north of Oxford Road using a refurbished pedestrian bridge from the City of Boulder that was part of a three-way bridge swap among Boulder County and the cities of Longmont and Boulder.

“We are happy about the partnership with Boulder County as we were able to replace a functionally obsolete bridge and replace it with a new structure that meets all current standards and allows for a trail underpass,” City of Longmont Project Manager Tom Street said.

The joint project between Boulder County and the City of Longmont includes both the bridge and trail connection and was funded by Longmont, a federal transportation grant awarded to Boulder County in 2007, and the countywide transportation sales tax approved by voters in 2001.

The majority of the land provided for the trail is either within county road right-of-way or is on county open space property purchased with Parks and Open Space sales tax funds.

The project comprises the northern most section of the planned 12-mile Longmont-to-Boulder Regional Trail that begins on the City of Boulder’s Cottonwood Trail and terminates at the Lefthand Greenway in Longmont. The LoBo Trail is primarily a soft-surface path that provides a continuous off-road link along the Diagonal Highway corridor.

Missing links at Jay Road and Lookout Road are in the planning phases as is a new connection to the Boulder Reservoir underneath the Diagonal Highway. Please visit the Boulder County Regional Trails Program webpage for more information.

Boulder County offers RTD Eco Pass subsidy to local businesses

Boulder County, Colo. – Boulder County and 36 Commuting Solutions have teamed up to bolster transit ridership among Louisville, Superior and the Diagonal Highway by increasing participation in the Regional Transportation District ’s Eco Pass program. Companies new to the Eco Pass program that sign up through Boulder County are eligible for an introductory subsidy. The multi-year subsidy takes up to 60 percent off the first year and 30 percent off the second year of new contracts.

Eco Pass is an annual transit pass purchased by an employer as a benefit for all full-time employees.  Eco Pass provides unlimited rides on all Local, Express and Regional bus and light rail service operated by RTD.  An employee with an Eco Pass is nearly nine times more likely to have commuted by bus in the last year than an employee without Eco Pass, according to a 2005 Boulder Valley Employee Survey conducted by the City of Boulder.

Boulder County Transit Subsidy

In 2008, Boulder County won a federal Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality grant to help pay for a portion of the new Eco Pass contracts.  Now funded by Boulder County, the program aims to boost transit ridership in Boulder County while relieving traffic congestion and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.  “Since the program launched in January 2008, 27 businesses representing more than 1,800 employees have signed up for Eco Pass,” Boulder County Alternative Transportation Coordinator Scott McCarey said.

“Eco Pass has economical as well as environmental benefits,” Boulder County Transportation Director George Gerstle said. “In a tough economy, a great way to save money is to reduce commuting costs.  By riding the bus, people save on fuel and vehicle maintenance costs all while improving the environment.”

For more information, contact Natalie Abrahamson at natalie@36commutingsolutions.org or 303-604-4385.  Additional information is available at bouldercounty.org/ecopass or 36commutingsolutions.org.
