The Trinity Commons Project (Mapleton and Broadway)

by Osman Parvez

Here's an update on the planning process for a new 28 unit development in downtown Boulder. On April 5th the Planning Board recommended approval so it's time to pay a little more attention.

Trinity Commons will be located on the corner of Mapleton and Broadway and consists of the following:

* 14 affordable housing rental units to be retained by Trinity Lutheran Church;
* A 3,900 sqft church function hall
* 136 parking spaces; and
* 14 unrestricted, for sale, 2-bedroom condominium apartments (all presold).

Here's the update from Stuart Grogan, a planner with Boulder Housing Partners.
Dear Friends and Neighbors:

On April 5, 2007, the Planning Board unanimously recommended approval of a proposed special ordinance that will assure Trinity Commons meets our shared vision including 50% affordable housing and historic designation of the original church.

Next is a two step process of review by city council which begins with a 1st reading of the ordinance. This is typically when city council raises any questions it may have. There is no public hearing associated with this step which has been scheduled for April 17, 2007 starting a 6:00 pm.

The next step is the 2nd reading of the ordinance. That is when city staffand Trinity Lutheran Church will make a presentation. At that meeting, City Council will hold a public hearing for anyone to offer comments. That meeting has been tentatively scheduled for May 1, 2007 in the Municipal Building at the corner of Canyon and Broadway, also starting at 6:00 pm.

Trinity Lutheran Church invites your participation at either or both of these meetings and as always, your comments and suggestions are welcome.

For more information: See the project pages at; or Contact the church office at 303-442-2300; or speak to the Planning Department's Case Manager Karl Guiler at 303-441-3270.

Would you please share this email with anyone, or group, you know who may be interested.
