I am in full agreement that it should apply to all R2b zoning classifications 
citywide. Problem is most of them are in neighborhoods like yours and mine 
  If we want this particular provision to apply in other neighborhoods then the 
zoning codes would need to be changed from R1 to R2b. The political will to 
change it would have to be there. I don't even think the city needs the 
property owners permission to change it. No one can say that an R1 can't be 
changed to an R2b. 
  I have a single family house and my zoning classification was changed from R1 
to R5 in 1999 without a single notice being mailed to my house. I signed 
nothing asking for my house to be reclassified. I tripped across the 
information when I was looking up the house next door to me. 
  If someone wanted to, they could buy the slum house next door to me and my 
house and put up a 3-4 story building and wouldn't need any zoning 
reclassification to do it. I am not encouraging any interest in that plan. 
Condo anyone?
