To understand the perceptions and priorities of Boulder residents and business owners, the Boulder Convention and Visitors Bureau and Downtown Boulder Partnership commissioned a survey of more than 700 residents with questions regarding quality of life. The survey was conducted by RRC Associates in June and July of 2019, with questions on subjects such as tourism, special events, attractions, downtown and traffic/congestion.
"I actually don't go to festivals, but other people like them. I really like sporting events, outdoor activity, and like to support runners, triathletes, etc. I am willing to live with pulses in traffic and CU activities and events since it helps Boulder be vibrant and interesting.” — Resident Comment (see more in the survey results below)
While there are tradeoffs, the overall feeling is that a well-managed tourist economy is integral to Boulder’s economic health and cultural vibrancy.
