Boulder city attorney: Adopt emergency ordinance for USA Pro Cycling Challenge just in case

City Attorney Tom Carr is recommending an emergency ordinance that would waive the prohibition of competitive events on Boulder's open space for the USA Pro Cycling Challenge.

Carr made the recommendation to the Boulder City Council on Thursday in a memo on issues related to the elite bicycle race. The Boulder stage is scheduled for Aug. 25, the sixth day of the seven-day race.

A public hearing on matters related to the race will take place at Tuesday's City Council meeting.

Some activists have suggested allowing the race to finish at Flagstaff Mountain's Sunrise Amphitheater violates the city's charter, which reserves open space for "passive recreation," and city code, which prohibits competitive events on open space.
