End Admittance of Violent Sex Offenders to the Boulder Shelter for the Homeless, and/or changing the Shelter’s Acceptance Policy

  • by: Jacky J
  • target: Boulder City Council

The North Boulder Shelter for the Homeless (the “Shelter”) is currently housing Sexually Violent Predators (SVPs) when they are released from prison and are known to be highly likely to re-offend.

The character of North Boulder has changed dramatically since the Shelter was zoned and adopted its current acceptance polices. Today, women, children, and families make up a large portion of the population. We want to change the zoning for the shelter, and/or the acceptance policies for the Shelter, so that they no longer admit such persons to their facility.

Our concern is the safety and well-being of the growing population of North Boulder. Women, children, and families should be able to fully enjoy their community and patronize local businesses without fear of attack by such violent predators.

In addition to asking the Boulder City Council to rezone North Boulder so that SVPs may not settle here, we want the Executive Director and Board Members of the Shelter to change their policies of accepting persons with past criminal records related to child molestation, rape and other acts of sexual violence.

Update #15 days ago
Last night I presented this petition to Boulder City Council. Four people from our committee spoke about ending the admittance of SVP's into the Boulder Shelter for the Homeless. We demanded the city take action to no longer allow these predators into our community. Please continue to spread the word about our effort and contact city council demanding change.
