Positive growth in the quality of life in western Boulder County has a common denominator – Dan Ball. From computers supplied to the schools, to fresh produce in the Senior Nutrition program, Ball is considered to be one of the region’s most consistently supportive patrons. Before there was a mountain community center, Ball’s family business, B & F Mountain Market, provided space and encouragement for creating community. The business is the largest source of sales tax revenue, as well as the largest employer in Nederland.
