Celia Shortt Goodyear/Boulder City Review

Work biggest driver of growth

What is growth? All growth debates in Boulder City are framed in terms of new housing, but normally urban development growth is framed in terms of jobs and work. What makes Boulder City different? What does the difference tell us?

Trust needed between police, community

When I started writing for the Boulder City News 20 years ago, I was green when it came to local issues. I had met lots of city staff while running our bakery and restaurant, Sweet Treats, had attended a council meeting or two and a planning commission meeting, but never had the free time between 1995-2000 to devote as much time as I would have liked. By July 2001 when I became the city’s public information officer, I had a bit of history under my belt. When you’re living what will become history, it doesn’t hit you like it does 20 years later.
