Boulder: Anti-growth Measures Defeated

Ballot questions 300 and 301 lost decisively in yesterday’s election. This is an important victory for moderation in Boulder. Question 300 would have allowed neighborhoods the right to vote on land use regulation changes. Question 301, dubbed the “Development Shall Pay Its Own Way” measure, would have imposed greater impact fees on development within the City. (The Boulder Area REALTOR Association opposed both measures.) Note: Voters also approved a new tax on short-term rentals but that question was overshadowed by the growth measures.
