Boulder City Council approves co-op housing ordinance | KGNU News

It took nine public meetings, hundreds of public comments and thousands of emails from residents, but Boulder City Council has finally approved a new cooperative housing ordinance that many say is an experiment that will need to be monitored closely.   Before approving the new cooperative housing plan on a 7-2 vote, Boulder City Councilmembers admitted the ordinance wouldn’t please everyone. As written, the ordinance limits the number of residents per co-op to 12 in low-density neighborhoods while up to 15 residents could occupy a co-op in medium to high-density neighborhoods. The ordinance also requires that homes turned into co-ops be large enough to allow 200 square feet per person.
