Long Description:
Boulder is a college own; home of the University of Colorado. While an overwhelming majority of the students are well-behaved, there are a few (as well as other locals and visitors) who can be hard on public art. Thus, the durable concrete 3D Map Model!

This 3D map of Boulder County used blocks to indicate foothills and mountains in the area. The famous Flatirons (visit link) are indicated with angles rocks. Elevation is denoted with green concrete for higher elevation; yellow for lower plains. The ever important rivers (hydrology) are inscribed with blue paint. The model points out large cities in the county. The model is found on Boulder's popular Pearl Street Mall (visit link) .

"Boulder County is the sixth most populous of the 64 counties of the state of Colorado of the United States. The county seat is Boulder. The most populous municipality in the county and the county seat is the City of Boulder. The United States Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has designated Boulder County as the Boulder, CO Metropolitan Statistical Area, a component of the Denver-Aurora-Boulder, CO Combined Statistical Area.

The United States Census Bureau that the county population was 294,567 in 2010 census. This was a 8.4% between 2010 and 2000, but a gain of 3.95% since 2000 excluding the area transferred to the City and County of Broomfield. Boulder Metropolitan Statistical Area is the 161st most populous metropolitan statistical area in the United States.

Boulder County was one of the original 17 counties created by the Territory of Colorado on November 1, 1861. The county was named for Boulder City and Boulder Creek, so named because of the abundance of boulders in the area. Boulder County retains essentially the same borders as in 1861, although a 27.5 square miles (71.2 km2) of its southeastern corner and its approximate population of 40,000 became part of the City and County of Broomfield in 2001."
