What if we just … made it stop? Constitutional amendment would impose residential growth limit along Colorado’s Front Range – Denverite

If you didn’t build it, would they not come? Here’s the proposal: In the Front Range counties of Denver, Broomfield, Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Douglas, El Paso, Jefferson, Larimer and Weld, building permits for new housing would be capped at just 1 percent of existing units for the years 2019 and 2020.
