What's Being Built Along 30th Street, Between Valmont and Pearl?

If you have driven along 30th Street between Valmont and Pearl, you have undoubtedly noticed the newly cleared lot and the new construction. Wondering what’s up? How will Boulder change even more than it already has?
The new construction you are seeing will become Boulder Fire/Rescue Station #3 (the cleared lot on the west side of 30th, very close to Valmont) and Bluebird Permanent Supportive Housing (the new construction on the west side of 30th, just south of the Firestation lot).
  1. Boulder’s current Fire Station 3 is located at 1585 30th St. According to the city, it “is outdated, inefficient, undersized and located in the 100-year flood plain. Relocation will allow for better service delivery to a significant part of the city that is not currently within a four-minute response time (industry standard) of any of our fire stations. A new station will significantly improve response coverage to a rapidly growing portion of the city. In addition, the station will allow for existing fire response resources to be repositioned and increase the efficiency of department operations while allowing for a potentially increased scope of emergency medical service (EMS) delivery.”
  2. According to Element Properties’ website, Bluebird Permanent Supportive Housing will bring “40 Permanent Supportive Housing units to the evolving Boulder Junction neighborhood. Bluebird will provide critical housing and supportive services to Boulder residents experiencing homelessness.” Element Properties took the lead in assembling a “coalition of funding partners to help make Bluebird possible, including the City of Boulder, Boulder County, federal low-income housing tax credits, Colorado state tax credits, Colorado Housing and Finance Authority private activity bonds, and Colorado Department of Housing. Resident Services, led by Boulder Shelter for the Homeless, will include contributions from a wide range of community organizations including Mental Health Partners (MHP), Meals on Wheels, Community Food Share, Harvest of Hope, Deacon’s Closet, Clinica Family Health, Workforce Boulder County, Safehouse Progressive Alliance for Nonviolence, Boulder County AIDS Project, Dental Aid, Boulder Community Health, and the Center for People with Disabilities for benefits assistance.”
