Developers keen to jump into Lafayette’s growing senior housing boom may have to wait a bit longer.

The City Council likely will vote next month to extend its moratorium on new senior-oriented housing development, tacking on another 90 days to the freeze sanctioned in October while it grapples with solutions to perceived problems around housing an aging population.

The ordinance is specifically aimed at development that falls within the city’s senior and special resident zoning codes, which includes nursing and convalescent homes, assisted living facilities and hospitals.

Such facilities have begun to strain Lafayette’s modest emergency services, officials argued in September when rolling out the embargo. A city staff analysis found that just three of the city’s facilities accounted for 324 fire department calls out of 3,000 total in 2016 — almost 11 percent.

Senior citizens are projected to make up a fifth of Boulder County’s population by 2030.
