Message From the Mayor

Happy New Year Everyone!

After a rough year with 2020 and all of its challenges, it’s great to turn the calendar and welcome the start of a new year!  By now we’ve all settled into some new routines and a new normal but with the start of the new year, it’s a great time to think about some new resolutions and goals.  This year as activities and events start re-opening, I’d encourage you to consider volunteering with community non-profits, the local schools or even your Town government. 

Each year, the Town of Superior is fortunate to have hundreds of volunteers who donate several thousand hours of community service to our Town.  Many of these volunteers serve on an advisory committee or work at our events like the 4th of July Pancake Breakfast or the Chili & Beer Fest in September.  While it’s still too early to know which in-person events we will have and how they will function in 2021, stay tuned to Town announcements for the latest updates.  In the meantime, our Town Advisory Groups are all functioning virtually and making great progress on a number of goals and I’d encourage you to consider volunteering with them.

My journey to the Mayor’s office started with my appointment to the Planning Commission in 2008.  Since I had worked as a residential real estate broker for most of my career up to that point, serving as a Planning Commissioner seemed to be the best fit for me at the time.  During my six years on the Planning Commission, I really never thought about running for elected office until I was encouraged to do so in 2014.  Now, almost 7 years later, I’m in my second term as Mayor which will end November 2022.  I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my experiences with town government, and it’s been an honor to serve you, the residents of Superior. 

As you finalize your goals and resolutions for 2021, I would encourage you to seek out some new volunteer activities.  Enjoy the experiences, the new friends and keep an open mind to wherever it may lead. 

Thank you again for your contributions to our community and Happy New Year!

Recycling Options - Recycle Row

What and where is Recycle Row?

While the street isn’t actually named “Recycle Row,” the 1.2 mile stretch from 63rd Street and Valmont down to 6400 Arapahoe Ave. is now home to every current City of Boulder and Boulder County Zero Waste facility. This makes it possible for residents and businesses to easily recycle, compost or reuse almost every discard item they would have.
