It’s time for Boulder to lead the way toward smarter cities.
Our citizens are driving innovation, but somehow the city has been left behind. Let's reach out to the community and get back up to speed.
- Kevin Hotaling, Boulder City Council Candidate
Boulder is a city founded upon innovation. We came West for the mining and stayed for the beautiful vistas. We developed a leading research university, won five Nobel Prizes and claimed title to the most educated city in America. We’re home to world-class athletes in a wide variety of disciplines. And now, we’ve earned the distinction of producing more startups per capita than anywhere else in the nation.
In government, we pioneered the concept of open-space, transformed Pearl Street into a model of new-urbanism and remain one of the most unique cities in the country. But we’re faltering. Our relentless pursuit of more control and more conformity has put our culture at risk. It’s time to write the next chapter in Boulder’s leadership.
By tapping the vast talent of Boulder’s creative class, web developers and entrepreneurs we can create new paradigms and new tools for our city. I look forward to sharing the details of how this can be done and hope you’ll check back to learn more.
