Editor’s note: An earlier version of this story should have stated Kathleen Hancock has raised concerns about the possible future housing density of the Alpine Balsam project. The story below has been updated.

Boulder officials on Sunday will share the status of city demolition and redevelopment plans for the Alpine Balsam site with neighbors near the former Boulder Community Health campus off of Broadway.

The meeting, organized by neighborhood group Think Boulder, will be attended by Boulder Assistant City Manager Chris Meschuk, Alpine-Balsam Project Manager Jean Gatza, Director of Housing and Human Services Kurt Firnhaber, Senior Transportation Planner Chris Hagelin and a representative from a city-hired consultant that performed a traffic study in the area.

Kathleen Hancock, who has raised concerns with the density options for the project, is accepting questions through Thursday via email at khancock@khancock.com from members of the public to present to city staff at the meeting.

The site, purchased by the city in 2015 for $40 million, is slated for a costly demolition of the hospital and a redevelopment that could bring up to 300 housing units on site and 530 to the area.

City council’s appetite for the project shrank at one point this year, but council decided to push on with the project despite concerns.

The meeting will start 4 p.m Sunday at Boulder Seventh-day Adventist Church, 345 Mapleton Ave.
