Bear Ordinance

If you own property in the area bounded between the west side of Broadway Street and the city’s western boundary, the City’s southern boundary, and a line extended from Sumac 15 Avenue due west through Wonderland Lake Park you are in the Bear Protection Zone.  Properties in the Bear Protection Zone must have all trash and compost secured from bears at all times until collected by a waste hauler.  The city of Boulder has been strict on enforcement if trash cans are not secured at all times.  Fines start at $100.00 per violation and go up to $500 for the third offense.
