NCA 2018 Leadership


January 12, 2018

The Niwot Community Association Board will see some changes in leadership for 2018. At the Jan. 3 NCA meeting, President Dick Piland announced that he will not run again when his current term ends in April. Piland has served as NCA president since April 2013.

New officers will be voted on at the NCA’s annual meeting for members. That meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 18, at the Left Hand Grange in Niwot.

NCA board members are putting together a slate of candidates for the open positions, and will also take nominations at the annual meeting. To date, Vice President David Limbach has agreed to run for president, Area 4 representative Tom Sesnic has stepped up to run for vice president and NCA member and former board member Dianne Zimmerman has agreed to run for communications director.

The group also is seeking a representative from Area 6, which incorporates parts of the Gunbarrel area south of Lookout Road including the Homestead and Gunbarrel Estates subdivisions. That area was added to the NCA boundaries in 2014 in recognition of issues shared by Niwot and unincorporated Gunbarrel area residents, including concerns with repaving Boulder County subdivision roads and Boulder County Land Use regulations.

Land Use

Area 3 representative Pat Murphy suggested that the NCA invite someone from Boulder County Land Use to attend an NCA board meeting to discuss land use regulations. Murphy and NCA events director Kim Hawksworth, who are both realtors in Niwot, said they often hear questions and sometimes complaints from clients about the county’s land use and building code regulations.

“There are all sorts of things that come up,” Murphy said. “I hear about challenges with building permits for remodels and unhappiness with the impact Boulder County’s Build Smart green building regulations are having on housing in the Niwot area. I also get questions about whether people can add accessory dwelling units such as mother-in-law suites or other living space. I think it would be useful to have someone talk with us.”

Treasurer Terry Larsen suggested that a Land Use presentation could be added to the annual meeting agenda to open up the topic to NCA members. The group agreed to further define the topics of interest and invite someone from Boulder County Land Use to an upcoming NCA meeting.
