FAR Vote Delayed, Public Hearing Tonight

by Osman Parvez
----

The Camera is reporting that City Council has decided to delay the vote on the proposed ordinance to April 1st. Yes, April Fool's Day. Apparently it was the overwhelming response from Boulder residents that caused City Council to reconsider the urgency surrounding this issue.

There will be a meeting tonight at 6pm to discuss the provisions of the ordinance. If you want to speak, you should come early. According to the City's website, the list to sign up for speaking opens at 5pm.

  1. Hey Osman, Great coverage of this issue! As a relatively new transplant to Boulder County, I am continually blown away by the increasingly restrictive regulations that city council places on it's residents.

    As a hopeful future homeowner in Boulder, this incessant meddling with some very basic constitutional
    rights are very discouraging. I certainly respect the city council's mandate to keep Boulder's
    quality of life great, however stepping on people's property rights is going way to far.
    It is especially discouraging as I would like to buy a smaller home, and do a major renovation or build new. Building new has already just about been ruled out due to city council enforced regulations and costs.

    If this new restrictive ordinance is passed, I will definitely be reevaluating my moving from Louisville to Boulder. One of the things I really like about Boulder is the diversity of architectual styles. The post WW2 inefficient brick ranch's that are mostly being renovated, are in great need of being RENOVATED.

    Boulder is such a great place to live, but the oppressive powers that be are doing their very best to limit the freedom and rights of it's citizens and property owners. I am seriously disgusted by the busy body mentality, infringing on residents rights.

    This ordinance is way over the top. It's time for some common sense to return to the people of Boulder and it's elected leaders!

    Best Regards,
