NCA gears up for annual meeting


April 14, 2016

Honoring volunteers, highlighting activities and discussing issues of interest in Niwot are on the agenda of the Niwot Community Association’s (NCA) annual membership meeting set for 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 13, at the Left Hand Grange, 195 Second Avenue, Niwot.

All NCA members are invited to attend the meeting; those who are not members can join the NCA that evening as long as they live in the NCA’s service area, which includes the greater Niwot area and a small portion of Gunbarrel. The cost for a yearly NCA membership is $30.

The meeting will kick off with honoring NCA community volunteers for their time and service to Niwot, followed by an update on plans for Cleanup Day in May and the annual July 4 parade sponsored by the NCA. In addition, NCA President Dick Piland will outline the organization’s plans for 2016 and give an update on the status of the subdivision roads lawsuit appeal. Vice-President David Limbach will discuss plans for the NCA to sponsor a fall open forum with the candidates for the Boulder County Board of Commissioners. Two of the three seats on the board will be filled in the November election.

NCA board member and Trails and Open Space Committee Chair Craig Rahenkamp will discuss the Niwot trails work planned by Boulder County, along with county plans for improvements to the Left Hand Valley Grange Park. He also will provide information about Boulder County plans for a portion of the Niwot Loop Trail near Legend Ridge, which recently was closed to allow Boulder County Parks and Open Space employees to survey the ecological aspects of the area.

Marijuana discussion

Boulder County Land Use Director Dale Case is expected to attend the NCA annual meeting to answer questions from NCA members about the application for a retail marijuana outlet in Niwot. According to NCA board members that discussion will start at about 7:45 p.m.

A public hearing on the retail marijuana application will be held by the Boulder County Planning Commission at 1:30 p.m. April 20 in the third floor Commissioners Hearing Room at the Boulder County Courthouse, 1325 Pearl Street, Boulder. A county planning staff recommendation is expected to be posted to the Planning Commission website a week before the meeting.

Planning Commission members are expected to make a recommendation to the Boulder County Commissioners about the application following the public hearing.
