City leaders in Boulder challenged U.S. Census Bureau data ten years ago and they may do it again following newly released numbers that place the city’s population below their own estimate.
Boulder's population has grown 2.9 % from the 2000 count but city leaders say the official 2010 count and an earlier estimate from the Census Bureau are nowhere close to matching. City planner Chris Meschuk expected a difference– but not as much as what came out this week.

Last fall, University of Colorado officials made headlines when they said they would take a hard look at the future of their journalism program. While other universities have completed the same exercise, CU’s has been more public and contentious than most.
