On April 25 the City Council had two items of interest to REALTORS®on the agenda – a text amendment to remove accessory dwelling unit density calculations and the Boston-Sunset annexation referral. Agendas are carefully created in advance by staff and approved by the mayor. Unfortunately, these two items were pushed to subsequent meetings because of the long public comment period on designating Longmont as a sanctuary city.
The sanctuary city debate, thankfully, is not a Realtor® issue. It is frustrating when a group of activists work in concert with one Council member to force discussion of their issue and push previously scheduled items off the agenda.
