Community Visioning Workshop

Trestle Strategy Group assisted the City of Boulder with designing and implementing a community storytelling and public engagement for the City’s recently acquired Boulder Community Health (BCH) hospital campus located at 1100 Balsam Ave.  Trestle and the City opened an onsite public engagement space where community members have the opportunity to share their stories, experiences, and memories of the iconic facility, as well as learn about this multi-year community project. This interactive space provided a platform to engage with the community and guide future visioning and planning efforts for the long term redevelopment of the site. The campus is comprised of several buildings, including an 355,000 SF facility located on 8.8 acres, and was purchased in 2015 by the City for future municipal uses.  For more information, visit
