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.
