Open House: Large Homes and Lots

Join us for an open house to learn more about the city's current project that will consider changes to existing Residential Estate (RE) and Rural Residential (RR) zones. These changes may potentially restrict single-family home sizes, allow for more than one dwelling unit per property and permit subdivision of larger lots into smaller lots. The proposed changes may also apply in the Residential Low- 1 (RL-1) and Residential Mixed-1 (RMX-1) zones, depending on council's direction of the project. 

Open House details:

Monday, May 13, from 3 to 7 p.m. at Boulder Meeting of Friends (1825 Upland Ave.)

Parking is available on the south side of Upland Avenue, in the parking lot of Crestview Park or at the Crestview Elementary School.
