About CITY OF BOULDER CITY, NEVADA
Located 30 minutes from the Las Vegas airport, Boulder City is a delightful and unique desert town located in the southern tip of Nevada. Boulder City enjoys a distinctive heritage, with its roots beginning with the implementation of one of the most significant public works projects of our time -- the Boulder Canyon Project, a monumental federal undertaking resulting in the construction of Hoover Dam.
Today, Boulder City prides itself in its commitment to support solar energy development. It is the home to one of the largest commercial scale photovoltaic solar energy plants in the United States and is working toward making its mark as a leader in solar energy generation in the world. It is the home to several solar energy plants, Sempra Energy’s Boulder City Solar and Acciona’s Nevada Solar One. An additional 6,000 acres are currently under lease for future solar energy development in partnership with world energy development leaders. Our active solar and gas leases cover 4,745 acres and generate 1,165 megawatts of power.
Nearly all of the land within the Boulder City limits is owned by the City, and this land is an important asset to the community. The... City has a controlled growth ordinance, which limits residential and hotel-motel development and has many restrictions regarding how land can be disposed of or sold.
This land asset has also made it possible for the City to develop many large parks, a multi-species conservation preserve and world renowned mountain biking trails. Boulder City isn’t a sleepy, little town—it is a vibrant, tourist-based community, that hosts many special events and supports many recreational activities.
The City is the home to three golf courses—two of which are municipal golf courses. Boulder City Golf Course is an 18-hole golf course developed in the ‘70’s. Boulder Creek Golf Course is a 27-hole desert golf course developed in the early ‘00’s.
The population of Boulder City is currently estimated to be 16,207. Following a period of extremely rapid growth, in 1979 the City adopted a controlled growth ordinance for the purpose of controlling the rate and distribution of development throughout the community to ensure the adequacy of the City’s facilities and services within acceptable allocation of City revenues. The controlled growth requirements and philosophy are zealously monitored by City residents. Approximately 25% of Boulder City’s population represents senior citizens and retirees from government and corporate pursuits. Geographically, Boulder City is the largest city in Nevada—over 200 square miles in size, so it had plenty of opportunity to grow along with the Las Vegas Valley. But, Boulder City has chosen to remain a small town and true to its historic beginnings.
Boulder City residents enjoy and are vigilant in protecting a high quality of life and in preserving the excellent family-oriented and small town nature of the community; gaming is prohibited by City charter, resulting in a community atmosphere unlike any municipality in Nevada.
Yet, Boulder City is a community that has that home town feel. It is a close knit community that has a strong volunteer base. Boulder City residents are friendly and cordial, involved in their community and vocal in their opinions. They will tell you when they think you’ve done a good job and won’t hesitate to point out mistakes as well.
Boulder City schools are a part of the Clark County School District. Boulder City parents are very involved in their children’s education, and it is this commitment that has assisted Boulder City High School becoming the recipient of the prestigious “5-star rating“ designation, of which only a handful of schools in Clark County have received. The five stars are only given to the highest performing schools in the school district’s ranking system.
