Bedrooms Are For People to host march in Boulder to fight against occupancy limits

"Bedrooms Are For People will conduct a march Saturday to continue its fight to get Boulder’s occupancy limits overturned.
The march will take place at noon, starting on the downtown Boulder County Courthouse lawn, 1325 Pearl St., in Boulder.
On its website, the citizen-led campaign group said the march’s purpose is to 'fight for a moratorium on all occupancy enforcement until permanent changes are made and Boulder exclusionary occupancy limits are overturned.'
Bedrooms Are For People has been working to amend Boulder’s city charter occupancy rules through a ballot initiative. The aim is to allow housing units to be occupied by the same number of people as available bedrooms, plus one and for a total of four people to occupy a home with fewer than four bedrooms. In most of Boulder, it’s illegal to have more than three unrelated people living together, though, in some specific areas, the limit is four, according to the group’s website."
