Is there a way to limit the database settings that a user can edit, lets say auto grow and owner settings.

For example I want a user to be only able to modify tables, functions, stored procedures, but not to modify the settings i mentioned above.

You can GRANT specific object permissions (existing database objects) without giving them db_owner.
