We need your help to rebuild Jamestown
The unprecedented flood (14” of rain in 48 hours) and mudslides that hit Jamestown were a deadly and violent force, destroying the major infrastructure of our historic, small town.
We are a small mountain community working together to solve our problems... but we need your help!
What we have lost
- Our dear friend... No one made our community more proud than Joe Howlett who embodied our small town’s values of hard work, compassion and fun. He was tragically killed in the first hour of the event. We respect and honor his indomitable spirit. He would surely encourage us with his “go get em’ guys!” attitude.
- Infrastructure... Our water treatment plant has been rendered inoperable and our fresh water supply is compromised. Without water we cannot continue as a viable community.
- Access... The river carved a new path and has taken our roads and bridges downstream with it. In order to live in safety, Jamestown will need to re-engineer and rebuild these essential access points. Along with this we will need to put the river back in it’s original channel.
What we have gained
Hope... Mother Nature may have destroyed much of our town but our community has never been stronger. We will be back!
What you can do
Donate... We are a small municipality within Boulder County with limited tax revenues. We cannot do this on our own. Donations are being taken through the Boulder Community Foundation and are tax deductible. With your help we can rebuild our town, our homes, and our community.

Jamestown is a historic close knit mountain community that is a very special place.

The citizens of Jamestown need your help in this time of tragedy. You can help us to Rebuild Jamestown today by making a tax deductible donation through the Boulder Community Foundation. Thank you. — Mayor Tara Schoedinger
