Advocating for Boulder County's Mountain Communities


The InterMountain Alliance hosted a “Preparing for Disruption” Workshop in Nederland on January 9, 2016. The participants expressed a desire to be able to share some of what they learned with each other. We’ve created a form that you can fill out and you can read what others have written¬†here.

Mailboxes on Sugarloaf after the fireThe Fourmile Canyon Fire of 2010 has been a catalyst for change in the mountain communities west of Boulder, and the Great Flood of 2013 has accentuated that change.  Now more than ever, mountain communities are closer to one another, recognizing how much support we can offer each other in the wake of a disaster or even when trying to navigate the bureaucratic maze.

The InterMountain Alliance offers a forum for mountain communities to assist each other in preparing for disaster and in planning for our future.

IMA has representatives from a number of mountain communities, both incorporated and unincorporated, including Allenspark, Lyons, Nederland, Ward, Gold Hill, Jamestown, Bar-K, and Left Hand Canyon. We welcome participation by other Boulder mountain communities. Our meetings are also attended by a variety of local, state and federal agencies, as needed, and several non-profits such as the United Way.
