Boulder‘s famous Chautauqua Park at the foot of the Flatirons and the adjacent, University Hill Neighborhood (AKA ‘The Hill”) is finally hitting a tipping point in use, or perhaps over use as the city struggles to manage parking and the impact of an ever increasing number of visitors.
The area near here generally referred to as the East Chautauqua Neighborhood is even beginning to feel some of the same impact as so many people come to this part of town, especially on the week ends.
There’s apparently a bundle of ordinances on board to be weighed tonight that could change the property’s zoning.

The county is currently being sued over the moratorium on oil and gas development that’s about to expire on May 1st.
The county may also have some legal battles about the regulations the Boulder Board of County Commissioners passed last month.
The historic Boulder Bandshell in Boulder’s Central Park near Canyon Blvd and Broadway, also called the Glen Huntington Bandshel,l will apparently not be moving any time soon. According to reports about the latest three scenarios for the upcoming redesign of Canyon and the new bike lanes, the previously proposed idea of moving the bandshell is off the table for now.
The Boulder Bandshell in Central Park between Pearl Street and the Boulder Creek Path is an outstanding local landmark that’s seen some controversy and changes, but it’s weathered the times and still stands!
It has a private back yard with a deck and outside storage; offstreet parking, a sunroom off of the kitchen, Stainless Steel appliances, a newer washer and dryer, and a tankless water heater all included!
The large living room has a real wood-burning fireplace, and the master bedroom has a study/retreat and private bath.
Bonus:: It’s just across the road from Wonderland lake and trails which is easily accessible via the pedestrian tunnel one half block away that goes underneath Broadway.
