Experience • Dedication • Commitment
My name is Bob McCool and I am running to serve our community on the Board of Trustees for Superior, Colorado.
Our family moved to Superior in the summer of 1997. My wife was working in Interlocken at that time and I was working for the City of Boulder Open Space Department. She would call me when she was leaving work and we would jump on our bikes and ride to meet each other. Original Town Superior was the mid-point where we met. We fell in love with this neighborhood and soon found the home where we still live today.
My service to the town started in 1998 with the then proposed development of the Superior Marketplace and shaping its impact on Original Superior by lessening the square footage of proposed development and advocating for the dedicated land that is now Founders Park. That was followed soon after as I served with a dedicated group of Open Space advocates in a grass roots efforts to begin an Open Space Program here in Superior. We were successful in implementing a 0.3% Sales Tax, starting an Open Space Advisory Committee (OSAC), and implementing an acquisition program that has resulted in the Open Space we all enjoy today. My service continued on OSAC for many years after, serving in various roles. During the latter part of my OSAC service I served on the newly formed Parks, Recreation, Open Space and Trails committee (PROSTAC) as a liaison to OSAC. In 2008 the Town Board appointed me to the Planning Commission where I served for 6 years. During that time, I participated in Town Center Planning, a full review of the Land Use Code, a comprehensive plan review and many development proposals.
As you can see from my long time membership with our Superior Chamber of Commerce and the eight years I have served so far on the Board of Directors I am an advocate for business in Superior. We have some of the greatest people in Colorado living around Superior and working with them and supporting them in their business has been an honor.
Throughout all my years of service I have been involved and participated in charrettes, surveys, planning sessions and most everything else the town has used to gain input and guidance from the residents. I am comfortable speaking up for what is important. I am knowledgeable of the Town’s key documents, code and processes. And, most importantly, I am a strong advocate of open communication, setting expectations and listening to what people have to say about the topics that impact our backyard!
I am confident that if you choose to elect me for Trustee my years of experience, dedication and commitment will serve the town well.
