Ben Binder: Neighborhoods held hostage by CU South

For 20 years, it has been known that hundreds of homes in south Boulder are in danger of flooding from South Boulder Creek, and the city has spent millions developing a $40 million plan to mitigate the problem. A major component of the plan is a detention pond west of U.S. 36 designed to store a flood’s peak flows and release them slowly over time…. CU’s strategy is to hold residents of Frasier Meadows and surrounding neighborhoods hostage and prevent any flood mitigation until it gets what it wants.
