In addition, community events such as Whistle Stop Park’s summer concert series Rock & Rails (which takes place every Thursday), draws in a diverse crowd that spans all age groups. Because of involvement from local businesses the weekly concert and related events attract droves of folks from well beyond Niwot’s borders.
As Boulder real estate magnate (and Goldbranch lister) Jennifer Egbert’s website states, “The Heart and Soul of Niwot are the small businesses who contribute their gifts of vision and inspiration, time, expertise and resources to provide free events, and to improve and preserve the historic character of this charming community.”
There is no question that this more modern Niwot offers plenty of activity to it’s current and future residents, but what does the future of the town look like? Although Budacz does not believe that more exclusive communities like Goldbranch will emerge, the home market will certainly be shifting to accommodate the influx of residents. What this means for the residents of Niwot: More robust and populated community events, increased foot traffic to local shops and businesses, and the opportunity for new friendships.
