We believe political and business leaders have a responsibility to make decisions regarding the intersectionality of housing and transportation and its impact on our per-capita greenhouse gas emissions and other environmental issues.
Housing is a human right. The key to a healthy, diverse, and vibrant community is access to safe, secure, habitable, and affordable homes. Boulder needs leadership that understands and supports the urgent need it has for more housing that meets the needs of our middle and low income people, including families, seniors, and students.
Automobile use accounts for almost 30% of Boulder’s annual greenhouse gas emissions. In addition, 60k people commute into our city every day as a direct result of our housing supply shortage and continued economic growth.
Building and maintaining the infrastructure to support transportation by walking, cycling, and public transit is the right way forward from a climate perspective.
