PLAN Boulder County
We whole-heartedly endorse our former PLAN-Boulder County board member Adam Swetlik, who has impressed us with his knowledge of Boulder issues, his leadership skills, and his commitment to civic engagement. Adam’s service on the Housing Advisory Board and his outspoken support for Open Space and for exacting community benefit from the Opportunity Zone are clear indication of the thoughtful and energetic leadership he will bring the Boulder City Council.
Adam is a young Boulder resident who rented until two years ago and now owns a small condo. He has served on the Housing Advisory Board since its inception in 2017 and is dedicated to affordable housing. He supports the municipal utility effort, the Open Space tax, and a fracking ban. Adam works with bees in a honey-producing local business, supports green streets that parallel major streets and prioritize bikes and pedestrians. Adam also supports modest market rate housing and affordable programs including the proposed Middle Income down payment assistance program.
This is Adam Swetlik’s second City Council run, and we’re impressed by the work he’s done since his first attempt by engaging with the community on a much deeper level and bringing himself up to speed on many issues. For the last two years, he’s served on the Housing Advisory Board, most recently serving as its chair, and is dedicated to finding housing solutions based on the philosophy that housing is a human right, not an investment. At the same time, he’s supportive of neighborhoods wanting to keep their character and believes the City could do much more to engage the community.

We need up-and-coming leaders like Adam on City Council. He understands the urgency of the climate crisis and is an articulate champion of municipalization and other strategic climate actions. He has stepped up as chair of the new Housing Advisory Board, informed by his perspective as a young renter who worked multiple jobs for years in order to afford to buy a condo in Boulder. He has a compassionate heart, is an empathetic listener, and has a knack for bringing people together to get things done.
