The Boulder Planning Board will host a public hearing on Wednesday evening covering the proposed Boulder Creek Commons project slated to be built on the "Hogan-Pancost" property in unincorporated Boulder County, southeast of the city.

The meeting will be held in the city council chambers at the Boulder Municipal Building, 1777 Broadway, beginning at 6 p.m.

Extensive comment is expected and the board is scheduled to meet again at 6 p.m. on Thursday if necessary to continue deliberations about the proposal. Additional public comment will not be heard at the Thursday meeting if it happens, according to a city news release.

The proposal for the 22-acre site near South Boulder Road and 55th Street calls for 121 housing units, including 50 "congregate-care" senior housing units, six affordable duplexes, two affordable single-family homes and 63 market-rate single-family homes.

The property would be annexed into the city as part of the plan.

The development has been delayed for nearly a decade because of the city's South Boulder Creek flood study and persistent resistance from neighbors. The development lies in a flood plain, and neighbors are worried about how the new housing would affect flooding and groundwater. Neighbors have also raised concerns about increased traffic in the area.

Wednesday's hearing will be televised on Boulder's Channel 8 and streamed live at
