*Smart growth*

Hayes, 70, is pushing an amendment to the state constitution that would cap residential housing growth at 1 percent for the Front Range, from El Paso to Larimer counties, including Boulder and Weld counties. The ballot language is awaiting approval from the Secretary of State’s Office. A hearing is scheduled for Wednesday.

Hayes points to his hometown of Golden. He owns and manages about 20 rental properties, fought for a cap on growth there two decades ago and says it helped the city preserve its character and save money.
