SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The Iowa City City Council moved forward Tuesday with two rezoning ordinances despite receiving more amendments to the items from the Greater Iowa City Homebuilders Association.

One ordinance would establish three as the maximum number of bedrooms allowed in a multifamily housing unit in multifamily zones. The council approved the second consideration on a 6-1 vote with Councilor Terry Dickens voting no.

The other ordinance would require at least one parking space for each bedroom for multifamily housing units in the University Impact Area. The second consideration of this item was approved on a 5-2 vote with Councilors Dickens and Jim Throgmorton voting no.

Councilors will vote on the third and final consideration of each ordinance at their next meeting, May 15.
