Dear Friends of Green Streets,
It is with great disappointment that I inform you that this years Boulder Green Streets Ciclovia, which was scheduled for Sunday, September 22nd, 2013 was cancelled by the City of Boulder for a variety of reasons related to the impact of the Colorado floods.
We are presently working to determine whether the event will be cancelled or postponed to a future date. Please stay tuned for updates.
While the sunshine is finally out the devastation of the Colorado Floods has left our City police, fire and staff overwhelmed, exhausted, and still desperately working to keep up with urgent flood related matters.
This is an important time to come together as a community but there are simply no barricades, and not enough energy to complete the large closure that makes Ciclovia so special. We encourage you to take the Sunday that was to be Ciclovia and dedicate your time to helping a neighbor or volunteering where there is need. Check with @Boulderrelief for suggestions.
Please stay tuned for updates. We will be working with the City to determine whether there can be a "make up" date and/or what our 2014 plan will be.
We are feeling so disappointed by the news however, we understand that our energy as a community right now must be spent cleaning up, helping people restore their lives, repairing our streets and public spaces, etc., and this is of great importance.
Thank you to everyone for your support. We will see you again on the streets soon.
Director of Boulder Green Streets
