Under the Boulder City Council’s latest, tentative plan, the city’s new co-operative housing ordinance would permit higher occupancy than previously suggested, but would also be more restrictive on several fronts. During a special meeting Tuesday night — called to continue the hearing that started last week, when more than 100 people signed up to offer feedback on the controversial ordinance — the council was supportive of capping co-ops at 12 people in low-density residential zones, and 15 people in medium- and high-density zones. Previous plans had called for a cap of 12.
Bottom Line: the City Council ignored virtually all input from concerned citizens, the Boulder Neighborhood Alliance, and PLAN-Boulder County. Instead, they handed the co-op special interest group everything they had demanded, and more.
