Zoning Reform Makes Room For More Low-Income Housing
From the Sun Journal:
"Boarding houses are not used anymore," [City Planner David] Hediger told Planning Board members. "They tend to be more complex, because once they begin to provide regular meals there are questions of health codes. Landlords today don't want to worry about that."
Planning board members agreed, and voted to allow lodging houses in areas previously zoned for boarding houses.
