Boulder Rejects Two Growth Measures

Two contentious ballot measures, questions 300 and 301, were soundly defeated in Boulder Tuesday night. The Daily Camera reported that "proponents and opponents both cast the fight over the ballot measures as one that will determine Boulder's future."

The first would have allowed Boulder to divide itself into 66 neighborhoods and allow each of those neighborhoods to vote on zoning changes, such as density and building height. The other would have established basic levels of city services and then required developers to pay for those services tied to new projects.
