Ever since the fire, we have been working hard to put together a plan to reopen Colterra. It has taken a year to determine an insurance settlement and get plans approved but unfortunately, the insurance offer won’t make it financially feasible to reconstruct Colterra in its prior form. After researching many options the best way forward is to redevelop the property with a new Colterra (including the historic Bader House) with additional space and possibly some residential.

It is very exciting to be able to bring Colterra back to Niwot. The challenge right now though, is the recently passed County Moratorium on development that is preventing us from opening. The Moratorium passed without any discussion with the community or local business owners. We need your help to get it reversed! This will pave the way not only for the new Colterra but other new restaurants, shops, and community amenities for the Niwot area.

Please join Bradford at the Boulder County Commissioner’s Hearing on Tuesday, October 30th at 3:30 (Third Floor, 1325 Pearl St., Boulder) to voice your support for Colterra and for a vibrant downtown Niwot.  If the Moratorium goes forward there is a serious risk of damaging our great downtown. Please click here for more information about the moratorium and how it is impacting the residents of Niwot.

If you are unable to join us on the 30th, you can submit your comments online.

Thank you for the ongoing support!
