NEXT STEPS / TIMELINE

UPDATED DEC 01 2019

COMMUNITY INPUT PHASE: THROUGH MARCH 31, 2020

EVALUATION OF COMMUNITY INPUT AND SURVEY DATA BEGINS

APRIL 1, 2020

 

COMMUNITY SUPPORT / NON-SUPPORT

Input from the Niwot community is needed. This is a town that we all know and love.  What is the best way forward for a bright future for Niwot?

From December 1, 2019 through March 31, 2020, the committee will actively seek community input with neighborhood meetings, meetings with business owners, and meetings with both residential and commercial property owners.

 

The survey, community discussions and feedback will be used to determine whether the Niwot Exploratory Incorporation Study takes the next step towards funding a more in depth analysis of the incorporation option.

  1. If there is community support for incorporation, a third-party full budget and legal analysis will be the next step

  2. Petition for incorporation could be submitted to District Court in mid to late 2020

  3. The first Statutory Incorporation election could be in late 2021

  4. The Election of Officers (Mayor and Town Council) could be in early 2022

  • If there is community support for incorporation, there will be an election and each registered Niwot resident will have a vote.

  • If there is only minimal support, there will not be an election, and Niwot will continue to be a part of unincorporated Boulder County, governed by the Boulder Count Commissioners

In accordance with CDC and Governor's recommendations, the Niwot Study Committee cancelled all pending community meetings as of March 13th. We look forward to future conversations about the best possible future for Niwot once it is safe again to meet. Stay healthy Niwot!
