Street Sweeping Route

Street Sweeping

Please avoid parking vehicles along the street

Street sweeping is scheduled to begin on Monday, May 6, and is anticipated to continue through the week. The route will follow the Town's snow priority schedule. The sweeping may kick up dust, so we recommend closing street-facing windows during the day.

Please do not park vehicles along these roads during sweeping.

We appreciate your help!

Community Service Officers

In Town parks, beginning the weekend of May 4

Beginning this weekend, the Town, together with the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office, will be working with local community service officers to help park visitors and residents understand and comply with Town ordinances, rules and regulations in public areas. This is a teamwork approach to help ensure a safe and fun environment for all visitors. You may see them in the parks, serving as a visible presence to assist with traffic flow and parking, deter alcohol consumption, remind guests of the leash policy, and other park related issues, in order to help the parks be fun, family areas.
