1500 Coalton Rd. Community Engagement Update

1500 Coalton Rd Bldg

The Community Engagement process gathered people to share opinions and preferences on usage and design of the 1500 Coalton Road building. The Findings Report shows the results of the two open houses and the digital engagement. The Town Board and OZ Architecture will be reviewing and discussing these findings. The architect is now working on revisions based on the input they’ve received from the Board and the community. Currently, the Town Board is scheduled to view the revisions to the design and program usages from the architect at their February 10 meeting.

Colorado’s NEW Presidential Primary

Boulder County Elections tag

How to Participate

(including 17-year-olds)

Colorado will hold its first Presidential Primary Election in two decades on March 3, 2020 – Super Tuesday! Political parties still hold party caucuses in March (check your local party website) and Colorado will still have a primary for statewide and local candidates in June. But ballots for the stand-alone Presidential Primary are mailed to voters beginning February 10. Here is what you need to know to participate:

  • Presidential primaries in Colorado are only held by the Democratic and Republican Parties. You must be registered as a Democrat, Republican, or Unaffiliated to participate.
  • Registered Democrats will receive only the Democratic Party ballot. Registered Republicans will receive only the Republican Party ballot.
  • Unaffiliated voters will be mailed both party ballots but can only vote and return one. Up until February 3, unaffiliated voters can also pre-designate their ballot preference, if they wish, by updating their voter registration. This will eliminate getting two ballots in the mail.
  • February 3 is the deadline to switch party affiliation to vote in a different primary.
  • ***NEW*** Voters who will turn 18-years-old by the General Election, Tuesday, November 3, 2020 – Can now VOTE in Primaries!
  • There is no registration deadline. You can register and vote up to and including Election Day.

If you have a Colorado Driver’s License or State ID, you can register to vote or check your registration at If you do not have a license or state ID, you can register by mail (downloadable form online at or in-person at any Boulder County Clerk & Recorder’s office (Boulder, Longmont, Lafayette).

Presidents' Day in the United States

Washington's Birthday was first celebrated as a holiday in the District of Columbia in 1880. It was made a federal holiday in 1885. The holiday was originally held on the anniversary of George Washington's birth, on February 22. In 1971, this holiday was moved to the third Monday in February. Presidents Day is now popularly seen as a day to recognize the lives and achievements of all of America’s chief executives.

In observance of Presidents' Day, all Town offices will be CLOSED on Monday, February 17th, 2020.
