Local protests could delay approval of housing zoning amendments

SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Local residents have developed petitions against an Iowa City City Council ordinance that would, among other things, change the definition of a household in Iowa City.

Approval of the amendments would limit the number of unrelated persons living in one housing unit to a maximum of three.

The city councilors are scheduled to vote on the first consideration of the ordinance during Tuesday's meeting, but city staff recommended councilors push the first consideration to the April 3 meeting in order to process all rezoning petitions.

A public hearing is set Tuesday night for the three zoning amendments.
