Boulder looks to expand nudity ban

BOULDER, Colo. – Topless women in Boulder are attracting attention from city officials who want to expand the college town’s nudity ordinance.

The city council is scheduled to take up a proposal next week to expand the definition of public nudity to include exposure of a female nipple.

The ordinance would make it a municipal offense to be naked in public places or view. Currently Boulder law bans nudity only at a city lake popular for nude swimming in the 1970s. That ordinance didn’t include toplessness.

Residents in the college town have debated for years whether to ban such events as the Halloween night Naked Pumpkin Run and an annual nude bike ride.

The expanded nudity ordinance would apply to anyone over 10 and carry a possible $1,000 fine.
