The Town of Jamestown is located in Boulder County, Colorado, 12 miles northwest of the City of Boulder. It was incorporated in 1883, after gold was discovered near Jim Creek in the 1870s. The Town has a population of approximately 300 people. Within our Town is Jamestown Elementary School, one of the few remaining “one-room” schools in the country; the Jamestown Mercantile (presenting live music Mon, Thurs-Sat nights); and the Jamestown Community Church.
Jamestown experienced a significant flood event on September 11, 2013 that lasted for three days. Since the flood, we have been working diligently toward the Town’s recovery. Please visit here to learn how Jamestown is becoming stronger and more resilient than ever before.

BOARD ACTION ITEMS:
ITEM E1: 4th of July Celebration: Update from the Town Clerk regarding profit/loss and any other issues.
ITEM E2: Private Pedestrian Bridge at 55 Ward Street: Prior to the flood, the residents at 55 Ward Street shared a motor vehicle bridge with the resident of 59 Ward. That bridge was destroyed by the flood along with the residence at 59 Ward Street. Subsequently 55 Ward was accessed by a temporary (non FEMA compliant) bridge that was removed on June 20th. A new, compliant FEMA pedestrian bridge is proposed, but before committing to surveys and the necessary permits and engineering, Laurel and Bill would like a commitment from the Town to convey a portion of the south side of Ward Street right of way to be used for the northernmost base of the new bridge. The means of conveyance will be determined after conferring with the Town Attorney and might mean vacating a portion, granting an easement or simple sale. The Town would like to negotiate an easement over the new bridge in order to allow access by Town employees or Stewardship committee members for the sole purpose of maintaining the open space at 59 Ward. Otherwise, this will be a private bridge.
ITEM E3: Volunteer Recognition: In May the Board initiated the first steps in a volunteer recognition program. The volunteer for the month will be named and will receive a gift certificate to the Merc. Board members will take turns each month by nominating a recipient. It is Trustee Golden’s turn to nominate a volunteer.
ITEM E4: Adoption of National Electric Code Ordinance: State regulations require that municipalities adopt each revision of the National Electric Code. By adopting the Code by reference we save publishing all 881 pages of the code. Anytime we adopt anything by reference, Building Codes, Traffic codes, etc., we are required to follow this process. Introduction of the ordinance, Public Hearing, adoption by majority of Board. There are also two required publication notices that appeared in the Daily Camera on July 20th and 27th.
ITEM E5: Resolution Extending Rose M Road to Main Street: Last month the Board approved a resolution providing a name, Rose M Road, for County Road 87E within the Town. Residents of 87E were concerned that on some Maps 87E was called Slaughterhouse Gulch Road. Residents at 3 Main Street, whose driveway is on County Road 87E, also prefer A Rose M address as visitors have difficulty finding them on Main Street. This resolution responds to that request and reiterates the elements of the previously approved resolution.
Board packets will be published no later than 24 hours before the meeting.
