Boulder

Boulder’s Resilience Journey

Boulder has a long history of innovation in sustainability and climate change. It was the first community to tax itself for the preservation of open space, the first to implement Mandatory Green Building Requirements, and the first to establish a carbon tax.

But resilience and adaptation remain real challenges for Boulder to wrestle with as the Colorado community recovers from historic flooding, only three years after experiencing the state’s most financially destructive wildfire in history. These experiences have taught Boulder that “bouncing back” is not enough – it needs a plan to “bounce forward.”
