Mark Wallach – Boulder City Council Liason
Mark Wallach is a newly-elected member of the Boulder City Council and has been appointed to serve as a liaison to the Board of Directors of the Dairy.
Prior to running for City Council, Mark served on the Advisory Committee to the City Council on development-related impact fees; such fees are used to mitigate the impact on Boulder’s infrastructure and housing needs arising from new commercial development. Such impact fees were subsequently raised in order to provide additional resources for affordable housing.
In his professional career, Mark was a corporate and real estate attorney and ultimately became a real estate developer in New York City. His activities as a developer emphasized the repurposing of old commercial buildings into modern residences, generally in Landmark districts. His work focused on bringing life back to old structures that would otherwise have been demolished.
Mark’s educational background consists of an undergraduate degree from Yale University in 1974 and a law degree from Columbia University in 1979.
In a great stroke of good fortune, Mark met his wife Joan in 1986, and they were married in 1997 (some things can’t be rushed). He and Joan happily reside in the lower Chautauqua neighborhood of Boulder.
