WHAT IS BOULDER TOGETHER?
Boulder Together is a strategic multi-year initiative of the Boulder Chamber designed to address the highest priority areas of Boulder's economic and community need.
In response to the global pandemic, Boulder Together evolved to address three key focus areas:
"Business is Vital" Initiative
Educate the community about the impacts of decreasing sales and use tax trends and the loss of business presence. Highlight that “Business is Vital” to ensuring a strong and inclusive economic recovery.
Increasing Workforce Housing
Support regulatory review process improvements to achieve the goal of adding more attainable housing for Boulder’s workforce.
Providing Increased Flexibility for Commercial Development
Improve the regulatory review process and zoning parameters to allow for more flexibility as the commercial development landscape shifts.
Lead groups that can implement programs for achieving goals through industry-sector partnerships and by expanding collaborative regional career development programs.
Direct Long & Short Term Planning and Implementation
Support initiatives designed to recruit and retain talent for continued long-term pathway development.
Education Research & Data
Champion the effort to continually identify and communicate the workforce skills needed in the community and the opportunities that exist.
High Speed Internet Access
Support public/private partnerships and initiatives that increase access to high-speed internet for businesses and residents.
Regional Mobility Investments
Advocate for infrastructure investments for SH 119 & SH 7 to stimulate our regional economy, while also seeking micromobility solutions that address essential workforce needs and long-term mobility issues.
Our local business leaders have pledged their support and investment in collaboration with community partners to achieve the goals in each of these strategic focus areas.
