Council Backs Off on Home Size Limits... For Now

by Osman Parvez

The Camera is reporting that City Council is backing off their efforts to limit home sizes in Boulder. The foolishness of doing it as an emergency measure now, as the national economy moves into what could be a deep recession, finally clicked home.
Public outcry and a recommendation by the Boulder Planning Board not to move forward with a temporary ordinance limiting house sizes prompted the City Council to put the issue on hold late Tuesday night.

In a surprise move after 10 p.m., the council voted unanimously not to hear a first reading of an interim ordinance on the matter, which had been scheduled for its April 15 meeting.
Thank you City Council. You got the message.

The meeting on April 15th will no longer include a first hearing on the ordinance. It will instead have a discussion on options to move forward.

Although Council has tabled the first reading, this issue is far from over. If you're concerned, I recommend you attend Tuesday's meeting so you can share you ideas and hear the options being considered.
