The fire started in a kitchen Monday morning just after 10 a.m. 
 

Five people were evacuated. No one was injured.

City of Boulder Launches a Brand New 'Mobile Friendly' Website

The City of Boulder has launched a new website and it's more 'mobile' friendly.


City of Boulder

Key to the new site is its responsive design, which means the site is resizable for any screen, including any mobile device.  
 

“It’s a new era in website design,” said City of Boulder Director of Information Technology Don Ingle.  “We knew going into this effort that not only did our website need to have an updated look, it also needed to accommodate mobile web users.  More and more people are accessing Internet content from mobile devices, leaving designs based on desktop screen widths a thing of the past.”  
 

The city’s site also features more photos and videos throughout its pages. Navigational options featured on the new home page were selected based on hit and search data as well as topic timeliness.

Boulder Creek Path and Cherry Creek Bike Path Make 'Best' List in United States

We know we live in the best place, and now there is proof we also have the best bike paths in the United States. Two of Colorado's most popular bike paths, the Boulder Creek Path and the Cherry Creek Bike Path have made to the top ten, in a list of the best bike paths in the USA!

 To determine which ones meet this standard, though, we first had to ask what makes a great bike path.

 
For starters, many on our list are important commuting arteries that give cyclists direct access to business districts while avoiding city traffic and making few street crossings. A few, like Boston's Minuteman Bikeway or Philadelphia's Schuylkill River Trail, were even designed, in part, to bring commuters in from the suburbs where they'd otherwise be out of reach of mass transit.
 

 
 
Rising from the plains to the Rockies and bisecting this mountain town from East to West, the paved, 7.5-mile Boulder Creek Path epitomizes what makes Boulder one of the most active, outdoorsy cities in the country.

 
 
Denver's numerous paved bike paths extend citywide and beyond, earning the Mile High City annual props on Bicycling Magazine's bike-friendly cities list.

Some Boulder Residents May Notice a Change In Taste of Drinking Water

The City of Boulder is changing sources on some of the City's water, and says that some Boulder residents may notice a slight change in taste of the water this week.

Beginning Monday, July 22, City of Boulder water customers in Gunbarrel, Heatherwood, Hoover Hills and areas north of Arapahoe Avenue and east of Foothills Parkway may notice a slight taste change in their tap water. This change is due to the switch of water sources at the Boulder Reservoir Water Treatment Plant from the Boulder Feeder Canal to the Boulder Reservoir.

 
 
Source changes are a normal part of water treatment and distribution operations. No water service interruptions are expected while the water source change occurs. Western Boulder water customers are not affected because they receive their water from Barker Reservoir via the Betasso Water Treatment Facility.
 
 


For more information you can visit the City of Boulder's website or contact Water Quality and Environmental Services at 303-413-7400.
