There’s a simmering debate in Boulder about growth and development, and that debate is now playing out in two ballot measures. One would allow neighborhoods to vote on zoning changes, such as density and building height. The other would require developers to pay for city services tied to new projects. Supporters of the measures say they’re necessary to maintain Boulder’s quality of life. Opponents say they will effectively freeze growth and turn the city into an island of affluence.
