Elizabeth Helgans: Attention Homes not playing by the zoning rules

Pending confirmation by the Planning and Development Services staff, it is our understanding the proposed project is in compliance with the Boulder Revised Code.  Firstly, the Code requires in Section 9-2-14(b)(1)(C) that the entire block (Block 122) undergo Site Review due to common ownership of the contiguous parcels contained within it.  Additionally, Section 9-8-1 allows 27.2 dwelling units/acre, pending Site Review approval.  Block 122 is 1.94 acres, which means up to 52 units may be allowed.  There are currently 7 dwelling units on the block, which means up to 45 new units may be permitted.
