Downtown Boulder Vision Plan Receives Excellence Award

On April 4, the Downtown Boulder Vision Plan was awarded a Colorado Downtown Excellence Award for Best Partnerships in a Large Community. 

MIG served as the consultant on the eight month-long effort led by the Downtown Boulder Partnership to develop a strategic Vision Plan to guide projects and programs over the next 10-20 years. 

The process included Board work sessions, a Visioning Stakeholder group, focus groups, surveys, coordination with City staff and other partners, and community pop-up events. MIG facilitated meaningful conversations around retail, homelessness, downtown housing, mobility, connectivity, diversity, and equity. 

The result is a Vision Plan with six “big ideas” about expansion, infrastructure and connections, strategies for achieving them, and recommendations for projects, programming, organizational development, engagement, partnerships and co-creation.

The Downtown Excellence Awards recognize and celebrate excellence in Colorado downtowns and commercial districts. The award for Best Partnerships in a Large Community recognizes excellence in commitment to collaborating partnerships that encourage and foster knowledge, awareness, support of initiatives, and other stakeholders within the local community.
