Boulder City Council unmoved after reconsidering affordable housing linkage fee – Boulder Daily Camera

The City Council has reaffirmed a November decision to raise, by about 25 percent, the per-square-foot fee on commercial developers that helps pay for the creation and preservation of affordable housing in Boulder.

Before Tuesday’s meeting, Councilman Sam Weaver made a push for a reconsideration of the $15 fee, which he said Trump’s election demanded, because of the expected loss or cutting down of some affordable housing funding sources.

“We have clearly seen the direction this administration is going, and it’s not going to be beneficial for affordable housing,” Weaver said.

Morzel, Young and Weaver were the only council members who did not vote in favor of adopting the $12 fee on Tuesday.
