Boulder City Council intends to send three resident-initiated measures to the ballot in November.

The council on Tuesday unanimously agreed that all measures — Let Voters Decide on CU South, Bedrooms Are For People and the Humane Clothing Act (or Fur Free Boulder) — should be decided by Boulder voters. Tuesday’s vote was a first reading. The decision will be official in August when it returns to the council on second reading.

Let Voters Decide on CU South would require that voters approve the annexation agreement between the city and the University of Colorado in an election prior to the provision of city utilities and services other than flood control facilities to or on any portion of CU South, a 308-acre property owned by the University of Colorado Boulder.

Bedrooms Are For People would change the city’s occupancy limits to allow more unrelated people to live together.

The Humane Clothing Act would ban the manufacture and sale of fur products in Boulder.

When it comes to ballot measures proposed by Boulder residents, the Council does have the option to pass the initiatives on its own by ordinance instead of putting them on the ballot.

City Council also is proposing a vote on a minor charter amendment regarding the timing of Council compensation and another that, among other things, would confirm the Council’s authority to create committees.
