"Three Boulder residents who oppose the Bedrooms Are For People ballot initiative are seeking to intervene in the campaign’s lawsuit against the city.
Valerie Yates, David Raduziner and Linda Sparn filed a motion to intervene as plaintiffs in district court Friday in order to prevent the Bedrooms campaign from getting on the ballot.
Boulder city officials have been mired in controversy after giving incorrect information on petition signature requirements and deadlines to the Bedrooms Are For People campaign, which seeks to change occupancy limits to allow one person per bedroom, plus one person, to live in a house.Despite the errors, a majority of City Council members voted against referring the measure to the ballot.
Campaign organizers Chelsea Castellano and Eric Budd filed a lawsuit against the city Aug. 3, asking the court to compel city officials to certify their petition and place it on the ballot."
