Boulder City Council to take public comment, discuss new co-op ordinance tonight – Boulder Daily Camera

The Boulder City Council will take another round of public comment tonight ahead of what could be a final vote on the city’s controversial new co-operative housing ordinance. The council already has held two lengthy public hearings on the matter, in addition to receiving more than 1,000 comments via email in recent months. But on some of the most important details of the ordinance, including maximum occupancy, the council remains unsettled. Some council members believe that proposed co-op occupancy limits of 12 and 15 people — the former in low-density zoning districts and the latter in medium- and high-density areas — are far too high. During the most recent discussion of the ordinance, Councilman Sam Weaver was keen on reeling those back to 10 and 12.  Councilwoman Mary Young pitched possibly limiting occupancy to six people in low-density areas. The public can view the latest drafted version of the ordinance here: Public Comment on Co-ops Jan 3rd.
