City of Boulder Won’t Change Rental Rules

The City of Boulder has been notorious for having all kinds of rental rules, building restrictions, and guidelines.

The net effect is that this keeps the heads of locals swimming as they try to understand how to remain in compliance with the city’s guidelines and protocol.

In a recent development, it appears the city won’t pursue looking at changes to the city law about Airbnb, VRBO, and other short-term rentals.

The city did however consider some potential policy positions regarding large groups creating “party houses” which could have created concerns about noise in some neighborhoods.

That issue wasn’t pursued. Code officers have had trouble dealing with over-occupied ‘vacation rentals’ possibly due to enforcement officers being overloaded with other enforcement work.

Boulder County Sheriff Joe Pelle Fifth Term Possible

Boulder County appears to love the current Sherrif, Joe Pelle, who’s been in office for almost 20 years. Although no public official maintains 100% favor, Sheriff Pelle seems to be an outstanding force on the local law enforcement scene.

While other county offices seem to turn over staff, the Sheriff’s office isn’t in that mix. Pelle has managed to secure a fifth four-year term option as voters approved a ballot issue recently to change the term limits for his office.

Since 2002 Sheriff Pelle has maintained on of the most popular and respected roles of any Boulder Sheriff in history. Many think this is largely due to his non-partisan politics approach.

Boulder’s Ball Aerospace Latest Satellite To Feed NOAA/NWS

Ball Aerospace has a large presence in Boulder, Colorado and we’ve been very fortunate to have so many great tech and space oriented jobs here.

There are several labs in Boulder thanks to the foresight of Boulder planners decades ago when they made a deal with the federal government to donate land in what was once unused space very far from town. That’s certainly changed!

Ball Aerospace collaborates with many other businesses and labs in town and the most recent example of that is the new Joint Polar Satellite System-1 (JPPS-1) which was designed by Boulder’s Ball Aerospace group.

NASA TV will begin live coverage of the launch beginning at  2:15 a.m. MST on Nov. 14 and conclude after the CubeSat deployment. Read more
