The City is fast tracking a one-sided Co-op Ordinance drafted by a coalition of Boulder Housing Partners Foundation and their supporters, which includes real estate developers and young people who are seeking subsidized housing (Group A). The mission of this ordinance is to open up single-family homes to Co-ops which will be permitted to house one resident for every 200 sq. feet, 8 residents in a 1600 sq. ft house for example. The owners of these single-family homes (Group B) have not been told, let alone consulted in the drafting of this Ordinance.
The one sided approach, just above, casts light on the bias in our City Government to favor one group (A) while ignoring the bedrock of our Community: the silent citizens of Boulder (Group B) whose hard earned tax dollars will pay for this initiative. Imagine, what happens to the property value of a single family home with 10 to 30 people living next door. They will sell quickly. The extreme occupancy dwellings, built for single families will spread and unravel our neighborhoods.
Extreme occupancy can lead to up-zoning of neighborhoods.

Simply stated this initiative seeks to lift the occupancy limits so that one person can occupy one bedroom which can be as small as 70 square feet.
