Bedrooms are for People seeks input before second ballot push
By the Boulder Weekly Staff. Originally published in the Boulder Weekly on January 14.
"Last year, organizers with the Bedrooms Are For People ballot initiative were given incorrect information by the City of Boulder, disqualifying them from putting a measure to raise Boulder’s occupancy limits on the ballot, even after collecting signatures.
In September, after it was clear the initiative would not make the ballot, organizers said they’d try again in 2021. The ballot initiative would eliminate Boulder’s occupancy limits of no more than three unrelated people living in the same house and replace it with a rule that would allow occupancy of a building to be the number of bedrooms in a house plus one.
The group behind the effort recently put out a call for community input, which you can access via the pinned post on the group’s Facebook page: facebook.com/BedroomsAreForPeople."
