Boulder is seeking community feedback on the proposed plan for the former Boulder Community Health hospital site and the area around it, known as the Alpine-Balsam area plan.

The plan will guide development not only at the 8.8-acre hospital site but also the area around it, which currently includes about 400 housing units and 2,000 jobs.

Three open houses are scheduled: 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at 1136 Alpine Ave; 4:30 to 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Municipal Building, 1777 Broadway; and 4:30 to 7 p.m. July 22 at the Rayback Collective, 2775 Valmont Road.

Two walking tours are scheduled: 7:30 to 9 a.m. Monday and 3:30 to 5 p.m. Wednesday at 1136 Alpine Ave. Attendees are asked to sign up online through Eventbrite (, search for Alpine Balsam).

Community members also can weigh in online at, Friday and through July 24.

Boulder staff is seeking feedback on the density and type of housing on the hospital site, which the city owns; land use options for the area; urban design; access and mobility; flood management and civic uses, according to a news release. Boulder City Council is due to provide feedback Aug. 27, after which staff will bring back a final plan for a public hearing in the fall.
