CHAUTAUQUA HISTORY

Chautauqua helps CU with G.I. housing

After World War II, many veterans took advantage of the G.I. Bill, officially named the Servicemen’s Readjustment Act of 1944. Enrollment at the University of Colorado boomed. A housing emergency in Boulder ensued.

Quonset huts were built and trailers were set up near Boulder Creek for students and became known as Vetsville. Housing needs continued.

The president of the University, Robert Stearns, attended the August 13, 1946 Colorado Chautauqua Association board of directors meeting to inquire about additional housing for student veterans and faculty. Up until this time, cottages were unheated as they were used during the summer months only. A committee was formed to work on the “acute housing emergency.” CU agreed to loan money and provide labor and materials for the winterization for usable Chautauqua cottages.

The contract stipulated that housing would be provided for married students and married faculty members only. “It is understood and agreed that the cottages are not to be rented to single men for bachelor quarters,” the legal document stated. According to archival records, CU agreed to use 36 Chautauqua cottages, in the winter only, for the duration of the housing shortage.

CITY PROJECTS AT CHAUTAUQUA

Construction is currently underway for the Chautauqua Pedestrian Safety Access and Lighting Improvements Project, part of the 2014 voter-approved Community, Culture and Safety Tax ballot initiative. This six-month-long project will address the safety hazard caused by the lack of sidewalk on a section of the south side of Baseline Road, and will improve visitor and area resident mobility and accessibility to Chautauqua. For more information, visit the City of Boulder’s project page here.
