  • Update from NCA President Dick Piland who is a member of the SPLIDAC committee:Roads to be resurface in the NCA Membership Area are:
    – Longview from Niwot Rd south into Somerset ($120,000)
    – Golf Club Drive, Niwot Road to Niblick ($225,800) Lake Valley
    – Fairways Drive, Neva to Niblic ($249,500) North Rim

Update from NCA President Dick Piland who is a member of the SPLIDAC committee:

Boulder County Transportation Engineer is advertising bids for approximately 11.5 miles of road resurfacing throughout the unincorporated county areas.  These roads were selected by the SPLIDAC, and were chosen due to their high vehicle traffic, general use by all county tax payers (Community Use Roads) in trips to churches, trail heads, recreational venues, schools and those roads that connect major thoroughfares.  Bid results should be known by Mid July.  If there is a bidder awarded, work will commence immediately and those affected will be notified by the County.  Specifically, those roads within the Niwot Community Association’s membership area are:

  • Longview Road, from Niwot Road southward to Somerset Subdivision.
  • Golf Club Drive, from Neva to Niblick Drive in North Rim Subdivison
  • Fairways Drive, from Neva to Niblick Drive in Lake Valley

Update from NCA President Dick Piland who is a member of the SPLIDAC committee:

  • Only one Chip Seal Company bid on the 20 miles of road planned to be chipped sealed to extend the life of better fair roads within the LID District.  That bid was double the cost that was anticipated by the County. As, you recall this $815K was the County’s 20% matching funds, which was the Commissioner’s only expenditures anticipated earlier in the year.  SPLIDAC members voted unanimously to recommend that this bid be rejected and that the money be folded into the $3.8 million for the resurfacing of “High Use-Community Roads” serving trail heads, churches, schools, golf courses etc. ($4.6 total 2014 budget)
  • Next Meeting is June 4th.  The agenda will address specifically which “High Use-Community Roads” will be listed for resurface, or reconstruction as necessary.  Once these roads are chosen, the county will release bids to asphalt companies for the 2014 season. With prices as high as they are we may only be able to rehabilitate 16-20 miles of road this summer….which would result in only about 15% of the total roads that are included in the LID.
  • It is disappointing and discouraging that the prices for road repair and rehabilitation are so very high; which the County attributes to the flood damaged roads and infrastructure repair in the front range area.  Hopefully, as damaged roadways throughout the front range are completed prices for materials and labor will decline to a more reasonable level.

Boulder County subdivision paving group changes course on plan

Update from NCA President Dick Piland who is a member of the SPLIDAC committee:

The Commissioners have decided to release $4.6 million for road rehabilitation in 2014.  It will take the form of:

  • $800K to chip seal the better Fair Roads to prevent further deterioration.
  • $3.6 million for resurfacing and reconstruction of those subdivision roads that receive the most traffic, and those that support regional destinations such as: Trail Heads, Schools and places of worship.
  • Specific details of the roads to be rehabilitated, as well as the schedule time frame will be provide as the program develops.
  • Email from George Gerstle to SPLIDAC

 

2014-04-17:
The road paving decision process is currently delayed by three factors:

  1. Boulder County has decided to only spend their 20% contribution to the LID and none of the tax collections until the lawsuit is settled or at least takes a direction.
  2. Judge Hartman recused himself from the lawsuit due to an association with one of the plaintiffs.
  3. Mr. Mike Cates (Civil Engineer) who had been hand selected and hired by the Transportation Department to be the Chief Administrator for the LID, announced his resignation.

As new information arrives this page will be updated.
